By evolving WAAP products through innovative innovations, we stay ahead of the threat and have flawless deployment and usability. Our strategy is the right one because our products and services have been highly appreciated by our customers. This is proof of that, and it’s a great encouragement.”
Five-star reviews are made up of content from organizations of varying sizes across major industries (retail, finance, transportation, media, manufacturing, etc.). Here are some of the reviews from Akamai customers who provided feedback on Customer Choice.
“Akamai has become a gold standard in edge security. We’ve used Akamai security for more than a decade, and the company is constantly innovating and improving.” – Retailer, Chief Technology Officer (* 1)
“It is particularly effective at automatic blocking against new zero-day attacks. Recent log4j zero-day vulnerability countermeasures were also quickly implemented in the WAF.” – Government Agency, Service Management Lead and security (*2)
“It’s like a Swiss army knife for Layer 7 protection. You can also establish zero-day mitigation to thwart zero-day threats. Reduce cloud hosting costs by eliminating unwanted traffic. We have also improved the customer experience by reducing latency and improving uptime. We are reassured that we are protected against intruder attacks.” – Banking, Solutions Architect (Security) (*3)
“Akamai plays a key role in security and performance. Akamai’s products are very good, but I think the biggest differentiator is the level of service that Akamai offers. The Akamai team is like an extension of our team. We sincerely wish our company success and are actively working to take full advantage of the Akamai platform to improve security and performance. Give me” – Chief Technology Officer (*4)
