Internap Teams with Akamai for Cloud Security

Internap and Akamai Technologies announced an alliance to provide customers with Internap’s performance-optimized cloud, data center and network services combined with Akamai’s cloud security and data center protection services.

Internap will offer Akamai Cloud Security solutions to organizations in security-conscious industries – including financial services, healthcare and automotive – that require the infrastructure reliability, availability and scalability that Internap and Akamai jointly deliver. The alliance is expected to result in advanced web security solutions for organizations with performance-reliant applications and workloads, as well as more efficient access to both companies’ technologies.

“Organizations that demand optimal web and application performance simply can’t afford the potentially business-impacting outages and downtime associated with DDoS attacks,” said Michael Ruffolo, Internap’s president and CEO. “We believe this alliance is a logical and powerful combination that uniquely addresses this problem for our joint customers. Akamai will be our sole DDoS mitigation provider, bringing market-leading security capabilities to Internap’s state-of-the-art data center facilities and to our expertise in delivering high-performance cloud, colocation and networking services.”
