Site Shield

Cloaks websites and applications from the public Internet and restricts clients from directly accessing the origin.


Site Shield provides an additional layer of defense for critical websites and web applications. Site Shield cloaks websites from the public Internet, effectively removing them from Internet-accessible IP address space. This helps prevent attackers from directly targeting the application origin and forces traffic to go through the Akamai Intelligent Platform, where attacks can be detected and mitigated.
