With shoppers using a range of devices, browsers and carriers, ecommerce websites need to deliver content and applications quickly in a variety of scenarios. Due to a host of regulations and policies such as GDPR and PCI, retailers are obligated to protect customer data, typically from bots that perform credential stuffing attacks (more than 10 billion retail-specific bot attacks from May to December 2018). These bot attacks also steal inventory, depriving retailers of revenue and angering legitimate customers. The top ecommerce brands (20 of the top 20 U.S., 7 of the top 10 European, and 7 of the top 10 APJ) rely on Akamai to help them realize competitive advantages through agile solutions that extend the power of their multi-cloud architectures.
