Site Shield “cloaks” a website from the public Internet – designed to protect the origin by effectively removing it from the Internet-accessible IP address space, adding a layer of security protection while still ensuring that content is delivered quickly and without fail, regardless of end user location. Site Shield complements the existing site security infrastructure that protects a site’s origin and leverages Akamai’s advanced site acceleration technologies and globally distributed Akamai Intelligent Platform™.
77Agency is one of the first companies in Europe to be awarded the status of Akamai Global NetAlliance Partner, and can now offer Akamai’s cloud-based web optimizing services alongside our new media marketing services.
Akamai® provides market-leading, cloud-based services for optimizing Web and mobile content and applications, online HD video, and secure e-commerce. Combining highly-distributed, energy-efficient computing with intelligent software, Akamai’s global platform is transforming the cloud into a more viable place to inform, entertain, advertise, transact and collaborate.
How Akamai Intelligent Platform Works
