CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), a leading cloud platform for helping enterprises provide secure, high-performing user experiences on any device, anywhere, today introduced Aqua Ion. Building on top of Akamai’s industry-proven dynamic web acceleration capabilities, Aqua Ion introduces an entirely new way to layer and intelligently apply a comprehensive set of optimizations, including front-end optimization (FEO), as well as third-party and mobile-specific enhancements designed to allow organizations to help optimize web experiences across a wide range of use cases, or situations. By improving performance intelligently according to the user’s situation, Aqua Ion is designed to enable companies to meet the demands of situational performance created by the new way customers are experiencing the web.

Built on the Akamai Intelligent Platform, Aqua Ion is designed to help companies meet the performance challenges that are introduced as traditional web sites continue to transition into more complex, richer web experiences. Single web sites that could once be universally delivered to all users have evolved to highly personalized web experiences that have a specific set of characteristics associated with a particular user. Beginning with Akamai’s best-in-class acceleration for dynamic sites – which is purpose built for scale, security and reliability and incorporates acceleration, connection, and routing optimizations unique to the platform – Aqua Ion introduces powerful new network and device intelligence features to help address situational performance requirements. These intelligent performance optimizations are designed to match to the conditions presented by a user’s particular combination of browser, device, network and content accessed.
