Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Akamai is a major player in the exploding cybersecurity industry, so rapid growth there will more than offset a stagnant core CDN business.

Bears

There is little proprietary about a content delivery network. Customers can set up their own CDNs if they have enough need, meaning Akamai will remain at risk of losing customers.

Company Profile

Akamai operates a content delivery network, or CDN, which entails locating servers at the edges of networks so its customers, which store content on Akamai servers, can reach their own customers faster, more securely, and with better quality. Akamai has over 325,000 servers distributed over 4,100 points of presence in more than 1,000 cities worldwide. The firm also offers security and cloud computing for its customers, and those businesses have grown to be bigger than the legacy CDN.
