DigitalOcean continues its rise as an ‘alternative’ cloud for developers and SMBs

Published By: DigitalOcean, LLC     Published Date: Nov 04, 2019
Over the last several years, DigitalOcean has built out its feature set in a way that has taken it from a provider of cheap and simple virtual machines (VMs) to a legitimate public cloud alternative, most recently adding support for Redis and MySQL to its managed database services. As its services evolve, it continues to experience healthy growth and maintain popularity among the independent developer audience. Over the past two years, DigitalOcean has accelerated the velocity of its feature development, looking to better meet the needs of a business audience. By emphasizing a simplified feature set, pricing structure and user experience, even as it expands its competitive footprint in the shadow of public cloud vendors such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Digital Ocean continues to help define what it means to be an alternative public cloud in a market dominated and largely defined by hyperscalers.

Bot Manager Advanced strategies to flexibly manage the long-term business and IT impact of bots

Published By: Akamai Technologies Australia     Published Date: Feb 07, 2018
Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties – often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50% or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on their business and IT infrastructure.

Protecting Your Network from Malware

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Dec 11, 2018
Existing security controls are outmatched — at best static and reactive. Current layers likely aren’t protecting you against all attack vectors, like the vulnerable back door that is recursive DNS. And security mechanisms that frustrate, impede, or disallow legitimate users, devices, or applications will have low adoption rates and/or will curtail productivity. Benign users may even circumvent these processes, further undermining your corporate security posture and creating more gaps in your defense-in- depth strategy. One of the many use cases associated with a zero trust security strategy is protecting your network — and most importantly, your data — from malware.

3-D Secure Authentication Using Advanced Models

Published By: CA Technologies     Published Date: Jul 13, 2015
Issuers need to balance eCommerce payment transaction security and a smooth customer checkout experience. The crux of the matter is how to provide a seamless checkout experience for legitimate customers so they won’t abandon their transaction or use a different form of payment while at the same time stopping illegitimate attempts to transact. The use of behavior-based authentication to determine which transactions should be impacted by requiring the customer to go through additional means of authentication is critical for reducing customer friction while creating better assurance that the transaction is legitimate. Rules are an important component when providing this risk- and behavior-based authentication. When models are added, and used to guide the application of risk-based rules, the impact upon illegitimate authentication attempts can be greatly increased while the impact on legitimate customers is decreased, providing a better experience for the cardholder and loss reduction for

How Do I Balance Robust Security with a Frictionless Online Experience for Cardholders

Published By: CA Technologies     Published Date: Jul 13, 2015
The explosive growth of eCommerce has focused attention on security concerns associated with online payment transactions. Cardholders worry about the safety of online transactions while card issuers are concerned about balancing the risks and costs of payment fraud with a loss of revenue caused by transaction abandonment. The 3-D Secure protocol allows payment card issuers to reduce fraud in payment transactions by verifying cardholder identity during Card Not Present (CNP) transactions. Before a transaction is authorized, a cardholder can be challenged to enter a password, answer a question, or use some other form of authentication credential. This interruption in the transaction often causes legitimate customers to abandon the purchase resulting in loss of revenue for the issuer. The challenge is how to reduce fraud without impacting the user purchase experience.

The Five Legitimate Shoppers You’re Declining

Published By: Riskified     Published Date: Aug 06, 2019
Fraud is scary, and there are many valid reasons for merchants to decline suspicious transactions in the name of fraud prevention. But often, in the quest to avoid abuse, risk-averse vendors take defensive measures too far. According to industry data, the average merchant loses 5.5% of their revenue to false declines — perfectly legitimate orders, rejected because they seem suspicious.

Published By: Sophos     Published Date: Mar 30, 2017
Exploits are one of the main techniques used by cybercriminals to spread malware. They take advantage of weaknesses in legitimate software products like Flash and Microsoft Office to infect computers for their criminal ends. A single exploit can be used by myriad separate pieces of malware, all with different payloads. Read this paper to learn more about exploits and how to stop them. We’ll explore how exploits work, the exploit industry overall, what makes a good exploit in the eyes of the cybercriminals, and also how anti-exploit technology is a highly efficient and effective way to secure your organization against advanced and unknown threats.

Endpoint Detection and Response Cloud

Published By: Symantec     Published Date: Dec 13, 2017
Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.

How to Conduct Successful Background Checks on Existing Employees

Published By: First Advantage     Published Date: Apr 30, 2018
Screening your company’s existing workforce can be a critical component in your overall security plan. But the process is far from simple—and is often intimidating. Learn from one company that has navigated the complexities, and consider their strategies to help you plan the process. Pre-employment background screening is now considered a standard practice in Corporate America. Very few companies, however, are crossing the threshold to conduct screens on their existing workforce. It’s a complex endeavor, and to be successful, companies need to walk a fine line between addressing legitimate business and security risks and not alienating employees along the way.

A Proper Foundation: Extended Validation SSL

Published By: Entrust Datacard     Published Date: May 15, 2014
To bolster consumer trust in the foundation of ecommerce before it was irreparably damaged, several CAs and browser vendors came together to establish a higher security approach based on common standards: Extended Validation SSL certificates. EV SSL is universally supported by all desktop browsers and provides an EV trust indication. All mobile browsers support EV SSL and some provide an EV indication. Extended Validation SSL certificates have the highest impact on consumers, reassuring them that the site they are visiting is legitimate through visual cues in un-modifiable parts of the browser interface “chrome.” For example, the latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Apple Safari display the corporate name with a green background for sites protected by an Extended Validation SSL certificate.
