Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Aug 17, 2017
Das Mirai-Botnet nutzt Hunderttausende von internetfähigen Geräten, die nur über ein schwaches standardmäßiges Kennwort verfügen.

Protecting Your Network from Malware

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Jun 14, 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. "
