Delivering Live Video from the Cloud When the World is Watching

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: May 08, 2017
Quality matters, but despite advances made in video streaming technology, delivering great quality live video over the Internet is still not easy. There are challenges with predicting the scale and potential audience location; challenges with managing complex encoder and origin technology; challenges of delivering video securely and reliably over the Internet; and challenges of protecting live streams. Add to that the range of devices, the complexity of live event production, and the demand for HD and 4K image quality and you get a scenario that is more complicated than ever before.

Measuring Video Quality and Its Impact to Your Bottom Line

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: May 08, 2017
This paper, which has been jointly developed by Akamai and Wuaki.tv — an OTT service provider — covers the importance of satisfying viewer expectations for a broadcast-quality experience by quickly and reliably streaming video online. It explains why it is challenging to do so and outlines best practices for online video delivery. It also explores the option of splitting traffic across multiple content delivery networks (CDNs) versus tightly integrating video player technology with a single CDN in order to improve online video delivery in a strategic manner. Finally, the paper shows how Wuaki.tv chose the latter option and boosted customer retention, customer referrals, and revenues as a result.

Are You Meeting Today's Mobile Mandate?

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Aug 17, 2017
The rapid rate of mobile adoption provides today’s users with nearly unlimited access to data and information anytime, anywhere. While “always on” users represent a tremendous opportunity for businesses to increase engagement, revenue, and customer loyalty, they also create unprecedented mobile delivery challenges. In this e-book, we will delve into these challenges and learn how to master them by optimizing for fast APIs, mobile apps, and mobile sites. But before we do that, let’s start our mobile story with some perspective: Approximately half of you reading this e-book will do so on mobile. That fact alone should be a compelling enough reason to keep reading, but in case it’s not, the following data illustrates the impact mobile growth has had on our technological landscape.

Security and Frontend Performance: Breaking the Conundrum

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Aug 17, 2017
More often than not, performance and security are thought of as two separate issues that require two separate solutions. This is mainly due to the implications posed behind various performance and security products. We typically have either security solutions or performance solutions, but rarely solutions that offer both. As technology has advanced, so have our attackers, finding newer and better ways to impact both the performance and security of a site. With this in mind, it has become even more critical to come up with solutions that bridge the gap between security and performance. But how do we do that? We need to shift the focus to what we can do at the browser by leveraging various frontend techniques, such as web linking and obfuscation, versus solely relying upon the capabilities of a content delivery network (CDN) or the origin. We can take advantage of all the new and emerging frontend technologies to help provide a secure and optimal experience for users—all starting at the

Detecting Sophisticated Bots with Bot Manager Premier

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Oct 31, 2017
Before organizations can address their bot challenges, they need the ability to detect the many types of bots interacting with their websites and web applications on a daily basis. Bots come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from simple scripts to sophisticated automation tools, and continuously evolve over time. As detection technologies improve, so too do the technologies available to bot operators as they update their bots to evade the latest detection mechanisms. When evaluating a bot management solution, organizations should consider its detection technologies and their effectiveness against the current and future bot landscape, while maintaining the lowest possible level of false positives and negatives.

Security-as-a-Service in the Carrier Cloud: How CSPs Can Capture the SMB Opportunity

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Nov 13, 2018
The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs) continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn, better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small to medium-size business (SMB) market segment. The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks. While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the service in a car

Security Starts at the Edge: The 2019 Security Buyer’s Guide

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 04, 2019
It’s a bold claim; one that hasn’t always been accepted as truth. In the not so distant past, digital security was seen as a cost center. Those days are gone. Security is essential to the success of any digital business. If there is one thing you can always count on, however, it’s that security-related incursions are inevitable. And it’s news to no one to say that these disruptions can have dire consequences beyond downtime. Security breaches erode trust and damage reputation. Simply put, there’s no longer a choice. As a CIO, CISO, or other security or IT leader, you know it’s your job to be the central agent stressing the connections between business and digital risk. It’s your responsibility to find the talent and technology to ensure the protection of your digital assets. According to Gartner, by 2020, 100% of large enterprises will be asked to report on their cybersecurity and technology risks to their boards of directors at least annually. That’s up from 40% in 2018. Whether you’r
