JUNE 30TH MIGRATION TO AKAMAI SUREROUTE IS NOW VOLUNTARY, BUT REMAINS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

As communicated over the past nine months, Akamai SureRoute technology has been introduced into our network environment as a new connection option. This technology automatically routes transaction requests around issues that may occur on the Internet, thus helping to ensure transactions are received by Authorize.Net, quickly, securely and reliably. Many Authorize.Net customers have already adopted this connection option and are taking advantage of the benefits offered by Akamai SureRoute technology. If you and your merchants are not yet connecting to Authorize.Net via Akamai, we encourage you to do so.

WHILE WE CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE ALL CUSTOMERS TO USE AKAMAI SUREROUTE, THE MIGRATION IS NO LONGER MANDATORY BY JUNE 30, 2016. During the course of migration planning, a few of our customers have reported unique implementations or constraints that prevent them from adopting the Akamai enhancement within the timeframe originally planned. As such, we will continue to support both legacy and Akamai SureRoute connection options. You and your merchants may now migrate to the recommended Akamai URLs at your own pace.
