The deal does not include the acquisition of StackPath personnel or technology. The two companies will operate under a transition services agreement for the first 90 days.
“We look forward to welcoming these new enterprise customers and providing them immediate access to the agility and scale of Akamai Connected Cloud to create and deliver flawless digital experiences.
