It is generally used with cloud servers. There is nothing nefarious going on - Akamai is used on many networks and is not malicious
As of 2009, secure connections (designed to highlight hidden intermediaries) pose a problem to Akamai, and attempts to connect to a popular website over HTTPS may reveal the Akamai backend. More recently, however, enhanced security offerings such as Kona Site Defender (Web Application Firewall) have become a major selling point, and in 2013 were the leading driver of revenue growth for the company.
