Within the CDN Ecosystem, there is the CyberSecurity sub-ecosystem that consist of companies offering edge security solutions to online businesses leveraging CDN infrastructure. Some are pure-play CDNs that have expanded their security feature set, others are pure-play DDoS Mitigation Service Providers, and the cool ones are a new breed of start-ups that protect companies from bots, scrapers, fraud detection, and click fraud. This category is expanding by the month, as new players enter the ranks. The illustration below is the first diagram of its kind. These companies protect against specific types of attacks, as there is no one that can protect against every edge threat, although Akamai probably dreams about it. Just like there are many security companies (Checkpoint, Fortinet, FireEye..) protecting the corporate perimeter, the same is true for edge security providers.
