COMMENT: Akamai’s Fran Trentley on the Akamai advantage
The World Wide Web does not scale too well, so we need content closer to the edge. We deliver one third of the world’s traffic which is very advantageous.
Being in the middle of all these transactions, puts us in great position to push our customers’ security policy out there from the edge, and we have the capacity to enforce it on every transaction without impacting performance.
– Francis Trentley, Akamai’s Senior Director of Global Services & Government Security
