With the OTT market advancing, operators want to deliver a consistent, high-quality experience, particularly for the growing audience accessing content on large screen TVs.

Supporting Commercial Goals
Akamai's mPulse and Identity Cloud solutions can give OTT operators a competitive edge and help boost commercial success by providing deep performance analysis of apps and OTT services and enabling secure management of audience data.
Content, Application and Infrastructure Protection
Media companies are among the organisations most targeted by cyber-attackers, with threat actors looking to capture viewer data, hijack and cripple services, or steal critical media assets or information. Akamai is announcing several security innovations at IBC that protect content, customer data and the enterprise.
Cyber Security Forum
