Akamai and AT&T renew alliance
March 13, 2017
Akamai Technologies and AT&T has announced the renewal of their global alliance through 2019. Under the agreement, AT&T will continue to offer Akamai’s full product suite, including media delivery and web security services, as part of its broader portfolio of business solutions.
The renewed alliance means AT&T business customers in the US and around the globe will continue to have access to Akamai services as part of a comprehensive portfolio of cloud and network solutions from AT&T. In addition, Akamai is expanding its global server footprint located at the edge of AT&T’s IP network. These deployments are designed to help provide AT&T customers with higher-quality experiences through more efficient content routing and improved delivery of digital content, video and Web applications.
“The mutual success that AT&T and Akamai have enjoyed over the last four years opened the door to extending and expanding our relationship,” said Mo Katibeh, Senior Vice President of AT&T Advanced Solutions. “As today’s web, content, and media landscape continues to evolve, we are combining AT&T’s business solutions with Akamai’s capabilities to provide AT&T customers with a highly secure, robust, and scalable web delivery platform. The use of AT&T IP networks and AT&T Security Services along with Akamai CDN and related web security services is a powerful one. Collectively, they form the underpinnings of the secure infrastructure that can help enterprises thrive in today’s massively connected and distributed world.”
