Site Shield

Origin defense by cloaking websites and web infrastructure

Site Shield provides an additional layer of defense for critical websites and web applications. Site Shield cloaks websites from the public Internet, effectively removing them from Internet-accessible IP address space. This helps prevent attackers from directly targeting the application origin and forces traffic to go through the Akamai Intelligent Platform™, where attacks can be detected and mitigated.

While Adaptive Media Delivery is both workflow- and origin storage-agnostic, Akamai’s complementary Media Services Live and NetStorage or Cloud Wrapper can be combined with Adaptive Media Delivery for an efficient, high-quality streaming media solution.

– Enhances web security by cloaking the application origin

– Reduces attack surface for websites and web infrastructure that can be targeted by DDoS and web application attacks

– Ensures that web traffic passes through the Akamai Intelligent Platform™, where attacks can be detected and mitigated
