Integrating TrafficDefender with Akamai

Integrating your existing Akamai platform with TrafficDefender’s virtual waiting room is quick and easy. Our cloud-hosted reverse proxy operates at a DNS level and is implemented behind your Akamai platform where it manages all incoming traffic.

TrafficDefender uses a reverse proxy to:

  • Quickly and easily integrate with your existing Akamai platform with no coding or architecture changes needed
  • Deliver ultra-low latency performance in the cloud for some of the world’s busiest websites
  • Prevent queue-jumping and enforce fair queuing as standard
  • HTTPS encrypt all traffic, delivering PCI and GDPR compliance

How it works

The TrafficDefender reverse proxy is designed to use a DNS-level implementation, allowing for rapid installation with no code changes needed. Set TrafficDefender as the origin server in your Akamai platform configuration, or place TrafficDefender in front of Akamai if needed.

The solution is both PCI and GDPR compliant. All traffic is encrypted by HTTPS as it passes through and is not stored.

With a single redirection and hosted on a highly available, distributed cloud infrastructure, TrafficDefender covers all aspects of the web infrastructure and has achieved 100% availability since inception.

The service can also be added and removed with ease thanks to the reverse proxy passive mode.
