NDTV is a pioneer in India’s news television. With three major news broadcast channels, and a plethora of hugely popular news and entertainment portals, NDTV is India’s most trusted Media brand. NDTV partnered with Akamai in 2007. When they were evaluating technology partners, their biggest ask was scaling delivery on-demand. Being a media company that delivers current affairs news, they leveraged Akamai’s content delivery network to seamlessly respond to increased demand during critical news events. While NDTV grew from being a media-centric organization to NDTV Convergence that also brought e-commerce, lifestyle and mobile apps into the fold, Akamai kept pace by now delivering content to an array of devices through a huge spectrum of bandwidth, in a highly secure manner. NDTV’s digital assets receive more than 150 million unique visitors every month. On the day that India’s 2014 Parliamentary Election results were announced, NDTV received 13 billion hits with no downtime. This is testament to the hugely successful partnership between NDTV and Akamai.
Hundreds of millions of data points in multiple streams pour into a DDoS protection network in real time during an attack. Automatic DDoS protection software with decision-making algorithms based on data analytics for DDoS protection are helpful but are prone to false positives. DDoS protection experts in a security operations center quickly make sense of the deluge of data and make precise decisions as to which data/traffic to allow and which to block. Using big data, security operations center engineers can customize your DDoS defense using specialized knowledge of how to protect against DDoS attack types observed as the attack happens. Watch the video and learn more about Akamai’s Security Operation Center.

Many organizations use Varnish at origin and Akamai at the Edge for scale, availability, and offload. This “dual-layer” of caching delivers a “best-of-both-worlds” approach for customers employing both solutions. This approach has its challenges. Disparate caching layers mean Varnish users who want to take advantage of Akamai’s caching can endure operational inefficiencies. To help overcome these challenges, Akamai and Varnish have collaborated to deliver the Akamai Connector for Varnish. The Connector allows Varnish administrators to use the VCL to integrate their Varnish instances at origin with Akamai at the Edge. In this webinar, you’ll learn: - How to install and configure the Connector. - How the Connector works, and where to use it. - Real world examples of how it has proven effective.
