Prolexic, Akamai Team Up for a Safer Internet
December 02, 2013
Today, we signed a definitive agreement for Akamai to acquire Prolexic. This agreement is subject to regulatory review, but is expected to close during the first half of 2014.
This is an exciting step forward as we strive to continually meet the challenges of today’s threat landscape. And it is a game changer. By combining our industry-leading DDoS protection and mitigation services with Akamai’s platform of cloud services for delivering, optimizing and securing online content and business applications, we can solve a greater range of availability and performance issues, while increasing customer confidence and peace of mind. It’s all about ensuring the Internet is a fast, secure place to do business.
