Some of our customers recently received a notification that our threat intelligence tools detected that one or more devices attempted to access a site that was marked as potentially malicious.
In an effort to provide you maximum protection, our Online Protection feature immediately blocked access to the site, known as akamaiedge.net.
Upon further investigation with our security research team, we determined that the site was not harmful and we have since reinstated access.
How do you know this site is safe?
The domain akamaiedge.net is a CDN (Content Delivery Network), used by many well known companies and services to cache and deploy software and other content on a large scale basis.
From time to time, malware can be spread through CDN networks, thus causing the network to be initially blocked by Plume. Analysis of the threat by Plume and other security experts confirmed the content was safe and the block could be lifted.
We take great care in ensuring you have the safest experience online. To see the latest protective actions we’ve taken on your network, visit the Manage security events screen, within the AI Security section of your app.
