We have recently undergone an attack against our web server so after what we believe to have solved the problem, we have heightened our security and tracking all outbound communications from our web server.

I see that our server is making communications to Akamai Technologies. Why is it making these kinds of outgoing communications?

What is the price of fish, honestly, no-one can answer that without the context of the problem, knowing your extensions, custom code, and a multitude of others. Akamai is a respected company so it is likely not malicious, the hacking, that is the cost of not having web security services fronting your site. In reality the cost of entry to eCommece is now revenue of $250,000/yr and that will continue increase over the coming months due to the number of services you need to run the business, IT spend should be 5% of revenue, below this and you are fully open to attacks.
