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.
