Akamai Security Events

Akamai Security Events App allows you to visualize security events generated on the Akamai platform. The preconfigured dashboards provide insights into attack data, sources of attack, attack queries, geolocation of attack source, context on attack’s HTTP request, and rules triggered by the attack.

Log Types 

The Akamai Security Events App uses security events generated on the Akamai platform by leveraging the V1 SIEM API and Sumo Logic’s Akamai SIEM API Source.
