Martin Hellmer, Regional Director, Media, MENA

Akamai Technologies will be exhibiting its portfolio of security solutions tailored for the needs of the media industry. The company’s theme for Cabsat 2018 is the Audience of You – an individual experience for every OTT viewer, your experience, tailored to you, controlled by you.

The company will showcase its Media Acceleration solution, which helps video distributors stay ahead of viewer demands for the best possible TV experience through the internet, regardless of network congestion, mobile network bandwidth or in-home Wi-Fi problems.

In addition, Akamai will also demonstrate how media companies can defend their operations against cyber attacks using the company’s multilayer defence services. A company spokesperson elaborated: “Trusted by the world’s largest media companies to protect their assets, Akamai defends against more than nine million cyber attacks every day. Our solutions range from safeguarding data centres to preventing personal information theft and protecting websites, all of which are now essential to any media company.”

Commenting on the region and the company’s strategy, Martin Hellmer, Regional Director, Media, MENA, said: “Along with our media solutions, we are excited to show our security solutions this year at CABSAT. The MENA region is key to Akamai. We’ve invested heavily in our local infrastructure and our team of media experts in MENA continues to grow from our hub office in Dubai, from where we support many of the biggest broadcasters across the region. In 2018, Akamai will celebrate 20 years since its incorporation. Since our launch as the world’s first CDN, Akamai now has over 240,000 servers around the globe and serves the world’s top 30 media companies.”
