Internet Security Providers Team Up

Akamai, a cloud-based security platform, announced its acquisition of Prolexic Technologies, a provider of cloud-based security solutions for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The transaction, which will close during the first half of 2014, gives customers access to a comprehensive portfolio of security solutions.

Organizations must secure their web properties and protect their internet protocol (IP) applications such as email, file transfer, and VPN (virtual private network) across their data centers. The two companies will combine services for enterprise protection: Akamai defends websites and applications against DDoS and other attacks, and Prolexic Technologies uses its DDoS mitigation solutions with security operations expertise to defend data centers and enterprise IP applications.

“We believe that Prolexic’s solutions and team will help us achieve our goal of making the Internet fast, reliable, and secure,” says Tom Leighton, Akamai’s CEO.
