Shouldn't be too hard to look at the firewall logs and then block the akamai servers in the Zones of the Firewall of the ZA.
Please turn off the Smart Defense Advisor in the ZA, any scanner updaters in the ZA, the check for ZA Updates just set it to manual, disable the SpySite blocker, turn off the Mail Safe. That will do.
Just for your information I do not have a server, I have a home PC and I am not official from ZA. This is a ZA users forum not the ZA official technical support forum. We are all ZA users and there are no paid ZA employees here at this forum.
If you are still not pleased, then immediately uninstall the ZA and stop complaining. By the way, since Windows and Microsoft uses the Akamai servers, you should immediately remove the Windows from your computer and use another operating system instead of Windows. There is no possiblity of Akamia installing something on your Windows.
There are many malware and hackers out in the internet. The leat likely culprits will be approved security software from approved software security companies. If not pleased with the ZA, then immediately uninstall it and live in peace. By the way just how do you know if the other security applications when reporting to their own servers do not spy on you or if the updates are installing something you didn't know about? Please can you tell me how you know the difference?
