Unable to whitelist API IP range

We need to allow the Wunderground API through our firewall by whitelisting the API IP range. I noticed the API is using Akamai and they have a product which would allow users like me with a firewall to add a known CIDR list to our whitelist. The product is called SiteShield and is discussed here: https://community.akamai.com/thread/3576

Please let me know if this could be taken into consideration. Thanks, Mike

I don't think we will be implementing that product, but I was informed: 
Akamai provides a Header that can be checked to see if the request
going to origin is from Akamai.
