Akamai is a global provider of content delivery network (CDN) and cloud infrastructure services. Robust performance from cloud security solutions driven by strong demand for Kona Site Defender and Prolexic Solutions, as well as new Bot Manager Premier and Nominum Services are growth drivers. Management is positive about the robust over-the top (OTT) content viewing. With increased adoption of mobile data/apps and growing mobile data traffic Akamai is well positioned for long-term growth. Also, strong balance sheet and cash flow will help the company in future acquisitions and share repurchase. However, Akamai recently lowered guidance for the second quarter and fiscal year 2018, citing a stronger dollar headwind. Further, intensifying competition in the core CDN space is a concern.
