Security Starts at the Edge: The 2019 Security Buyer’s Guide

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 04, 2019
It’s a bold claim; one that hasn’t always been accepted as truth. In the not so distant past, digital security was seen as a cost center. Those days are gone. Security is essential to the success of any digital business. If there is one thing you can always count on, however, it’s that security-related incursions are inevitable. And it’s news to no one to say that these disruptions can have dire consequences beyond downtime. Security breaches erode trust and damage reputation. Simply put, there’s no longer a choice. As a CIO, CISO, or other security or IT leader, you know it’s your job to be the central agent stressing the connections between business and digital risk. It’s your responsibility to find the talent and technology to ensure the protection of your digital assets. According to Gartner, by 2020, 100% of large enterprises will be asked to report on their cybersecurity and technology risks to their boards of directors at least annually. That’s up from 40% in 2018. Whether you’r

Financial Services Attack Economy

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 03, 2019
The attacks and tools being used against financial services organizations are part of a complex ecosystem. This may seem like an obvious statement at first glance. When you read most industry reports, they tend to focus on a single aspect of the whole ecosystem, as if it were unrelated to other types of attacks. To be honest, we’ve been just as guilty of having a myopic view of attack traffic as anyone else. We wanted to do something different for this report. Instead of looking at a single type of attack, we stepped back to look at attacks against banks, credit unions, trading companies, and other organizations that make up financial services as a whole. Most defenders only see a very small segment of the overall traffic, whether they’re the target or the vendor supplying defensive tools. The breadth of Akamai’s products and our visibility into a significant portion of Internet traffic allows us to research multiple stages of the attack economy.

Financial Services Attack Economy

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Aug 30, 2019
The financial services industry is one of the largest and most sought-after targets for attackers. This particular industry revolves around trust and security, and because of this, these elements are quite often the key focal point for criminals. Successful attacks can quickly translate into the dissemination of massive amounts of personal information and monetary gains by the attacker. Criminals targeting the financial services industry do so by leveraging various attack surfaces, such as people, processes, applications, or systems. Regardless of where the financial institutions are located in the world, staying aware of the forefront of new attack trends is imperative for keeping their systems and customers safe. Understanding the ecosystem of attacks, how different layers interact, and the booming economy spawned by it gives financial services organizations the edge they need.

From the Core to the Edge: 7 Reasons You Need Security at the Edge

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Mar 19, 2019
Digital security has never taken on greater urgency. Today we live in a fundamentally connected ecosystem where we increasingly work, play, and indeed live most of our lives online. Whether we are enterprise users or endpoint consumers, our digital experiences are increasingly delivered to us on our connected devices - wherever we are, whenever we want them. For InfoSec professionals, this interconnected ecosystem is wreaking havoc with the idea of "the perimeter." In fact, the perimeter as we know it no longer exits. The attack surface is always shifting and continues to disperse across a wider area. At the same time, attacks continue to grow in size and volume, and are increasingly targeted. No longer can you secure the perimeter and trust that nothing will get in or out. What you need to deploy and manage is being redefined right before your eyes, with or without you. You need to take security to the edge.

Each of the stories in this issue of the State of the Internet / Security report looked at aspects of security (credential abuse/APIs/IPv6) that are often overlooked by the mainstream but are nevertheless important to day-to-day operations.

Zero Trust Delivers 6 Security and Business Benefits

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Dec 17, 2018
Employees, devices, and applications are no longer locked away inside the corporate perimeter. They’re on the web and on the go.

But zero trust offers more than a line of defense. The model’s security benefits deliver considerable business value, too. Read this white paper to learn more about: -Protecting your customers’ data -Decreasing the time to breach detection -Gaining visibility into your enterprise traffic -Reducing the complexity of your security stack -Solving the security skills shortage -Optimizing the end-user experience -Facilitating the move to the cloud
