7 Critical Considerations for Choosing a Cloud Security Provider

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Aug 17, 2017
The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.

State of The Internet/Security

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: May 07, 2018
2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

Data Science Is the Foundation for Contemporary Threat Intelligence

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 10, 2019
Contemporary internet threats are sophisticated and adaptable, they continuously change their complexion to evade security defenses. Traditional rigid, deterministic, rule-based security research are becoming less effective. Security research approaches employing data science methods to implement anomalies-based analysis across very large volumes of anonymized data are now essential. This paper will: • Briefly cover security research challenges in today’s threat landscape • Explain why DNS resolution data is a rich resource for security research • Describe how Akamai teams use DNS data and data science to create better threat intelligence • Discuss improvements in threat coverage, accuracy, and responsiveness to today’s agile threats

Enterprise Organizations Need to Prepare for Cyber-attack ‘Hunting’

Published By: ArborNetworks     Published Date: Feb 12, 2016
Ask any cybersecurity professional and she’ll tell you that her job is getting increasingly difficult. Why? Most will point to a combination of the dangerous threat landscape, IT complexity, and their overwhelming workload. These issues are driving a major transition in enterprise security. Large organizations must move beyond a threat prevention mentality to become proactive cyber-¬-attack “hunters” that constantly monitor their networks for signs of trouble. This shift to proactive hunting will require new technologies that collect, process, and analyze massive amounts of security data, offer intelligent security analytics for real-¬-time incident detection, integrate threat intelligence to align suspicious internal activities with external threats, and provide analysts with the right data analytics features to query and manipulate data for historical investigations.

Ransomware Prevention Is Possible: Fighting Today’s Extortive Threats

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Providing a Frontline Defense Against Fileless Malware

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

An Alternative to Today's Distributed Content Security Chaos

Published By: Box     Published Date: Feb 13, 2015
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity. Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.
