VPNs were created for the networks and business environment of yesterday: Most employees worked in an office, devices were limited, enterprise architecture was far less complex, and attacks, in general, were considerably less sophisticated and frequent. What worked 20 years ago cannot be trusted today. Your VPN is cumbersome and time consuming from a management and performance perspective. But what you might not want to concede is that VPNs, by their very nature, pose a significant threat to enterprise security. Read this white paper to learn more about: The vulnerabilities and inefficiencies of traditional remote access -Why VPN elimination must happen now -The four advantages to eliminating your VPN -How a cloud framework for application access works -Next steps to implement a more secure access solution

The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs) continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn, better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small to medium-size business (SMB) market segment. The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks. While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the service in a car

DDoS attack size doubled in early 2018 after attackers discovered and employed a new, massive DDoS reflection and amplification method with the potential to multiply their attack resources by a factor of 500K. The attack vector, called memcached UDP reflection, uses resources freely exposed on the internet — no malware or botnet required.

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.

Whether you're focused on public-facing websites or your company's assets and users, as someone who cares about digital security, your life is dominated by these trends that characterize the state of all things security in 2019: Attacks are growing, evolving, and becoming more sophisticated. And the types of attacks we see are proliferating. How do you protect your crown jewels when the castle has no walls? The answer is at the edge. When you deploy security at the edge, you are protecting your changing assets closer to the attack itself and moving digital experiences closer to users. In essence, you're deploying a single pane of glass, an extension of your infrastructure, that sits between you - your users, your digital experiences - and the always-changing nature of today's digital environment.

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.

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.

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.
