The Content Delivery Network helps distribute content at high speeds and is thus particularly useful to websites facing heavy demand and those that can be reached internationally. The main presumed advantage of CDNs is their increased efficiency and the potential to unload traffic directly from the content provider's origin network, which can contribute to cost savings for the content provider. Akamai's goal is to make digital interactions quick, smart and safe. The company's digital edge network covers everything from business to cloud. This brings applications and content closer to users — and hacks and risks further away. Top brands are depending globally on Akamai as their competitive edge. The company allows them to win the competition by agile approaches that expand the strength of their multi-cloud environment.
