Cequence API Security Platform (ASP) and Akamai
Akamai content delivery network (CDN) integrates with Cequence ASP to prevent account takeovers, API-based business logic abuse, and to analyze API transactions.
Cequence API Security Platform (Cequence ASP) uses an ML-based approach to eliminate avenues of fraud caused by automated attacks targeted at web, mobile and API based applications. This document focuses on the SaaS based Cequence ASP solution which significantly reduces deployment overhead. On-premises Cequence ASP solutions are also available.

The steps required to integrate Cequence ASP with Akamai are relatively straightforward. All traffic that terminates on Akamai will be routed to Cequence ASP first for inspection and then forwarded to the application origin (Inline Upstream deployment) or forwarded back to Akamai from where it will be routed to the application origin (Inline Hairpin Deployment).
