A few months later, in 2010, we successfully proposed Akamai as a solution to the serious stability problem that plagued the website of an important Italian culture brand – continues Nerini -. Following the deepening of his knowledge on Akamai products, 77Agency understood how fundamental they were for a company that intends to operate effectively on the web. Since 2011, 77Agency has therefore become part of the Akamai NetAlliance Partner Program and is now enabled to resell its services in Italy, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
With the addition of Akamai to its portfolio of services, 77Agency can offer its customers 360-degree support for their web presence. a recurrent scenario in which a potential customer initially turns to 77Agency only for online marketing activities, and then continues with commissioning the entire re-development of its website accelerated by Akamai.
Amedeo Guffanti, Partner and General Manager 77Agency, guides all the activities of the agency and, with its teams, studies the combination of the best digital solutions for customers. As part of these activities – he says – 77Agency recommends Akamai to its customers, in order to achieve the maximum improvement in performance in the mix of digital solutions proposed. With the same budget, Akamai makes a better performance possible. Compared to the traditional system integrators authorized to resell Akamai, 77Agency adds its know-how in the world of new media marketing and social media. in fact it is rare that the agency proposes Akamai as a stand alone service; more frequently, acceleration (Aqua) and safety (Kona) solutions are integrated into broader proposals, able to cover the entire online strategy of a company. Through the use of Akamai – Aqua guarantees that the timing of site uploads are reduced to a minimum. This factor has a positive influence, reducing users' bounce rate and increasing their click through rate. Seen from the perspective of online marketing campaigns, having a low bounce rate and a high click through translates immediately into a greater return on the investment of the advertising budget. Through the use of the Akamai Kona product suite – underlines Nerini -, we provide our customers with guarantees of protection against DDos attacks and attacks at the application level (SQL Injection, Cross Site Scripting, etc.) or DNS.
Kona solutions represent the natural evolution for customers who already use acceleration services and are a perfect complement to the offer of 77Agency hosting services.

The Aqua solutions, on the other hand, already offer a level of protection against DDos attacks, preserving the usability of your site even during those up to 124Gbps of maximum capacity.

Kona also offers the possibility of making the server on which your site is hosted 'invisible' on the Internet, virtually reducing the chances of a direct attack to zero. Just recently, an important network of portals dedicated to tourism services (reservations for flights and cars) and already 77Agency customer with Aqua, has decided to add Kona to get more complete protection from the increasingly frequent DDos attacks.Our customer portfolio is very diversified – explains Marco Corsaro, founder and managing director of 77Agency -.
