This whitepaper gives a broad overview of the ways in which Akamai can help organizations bolster the security of their Web-based assets, with capabilities ranging across the application, network, and DNS layers, as well as solutions focused on Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation and business continuity.
The globalization of the medical device industry has delivered substantial business benefits, but it has also presented certain problems that can make the realization of those opportunities challenging. Learn about a comprehensive global collaboration solution that addresses and overcomes these obstacles.
Learn about the origins, tactics, types, and targets of cyber- attacks and emerging threats and trends from post-attack analysis and intelligence by cybersecurity and DDoS mitigation experts. Includes quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year trends, plus spotlights on recent DDoS and web application attacks and review of the past quarter’s hot-topic issues in cybersecurity.
The latest analysis of cloud security DDoS and web application attacks observe across the Akamai Intelligent Platform for Q32016. Highlights include analysis of the latest wave of mega attacks, a look at NTP trends and shrinking of NTP reflection capabilities, and a look at how bot activity can create DDoS-like conditions.
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.
Hier können Sie sich den vollständigen „State of the Internet“-Sicherheitsbericht für das 1. Quartal 2017 ansehen: www.akamai.com/StateOfTheInternet-security Die Statistiken basieren auf von Akamai abgewehrten Angriffskampagnen.
Ponemon Institute surveyed 569 individuals in IT security who are familiar with credential stuffing and are responsible for the security of their companies’ Internet properties. The survey identified key stats about credential stuffing, including the costs organizations incur to prevent damage, and the financial consequences when attackers succeed.
According to respondents, these attacks cause costly application downtime, loss of customers, and involvement of IT security that can result in a cost of millions of dollars. The survey highlights the challenges in identifying who is accessing their websites using stolen credentials, as well as the difficulty in preventing and remediating these attacks.
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.
The Summer 2018 security report is about change: what’s new and unusual in DDoS attacks, where are the surprising data patterns, and how should enterprises and security professionals prepare for the unexpected. Looking back at November 2017 to April 2018, as well as year-over-year changes, Akamai analysts identified data trends that spotlight the new and unfamiliar. The Summer 2018 State of the Internet / Security: Web Attacks report covers atypical attack methods, credential abuse attacks and law enforcement prosecution of DDoS-for-hire platforms. Guest writer Rik Ferguson also explores future threat scenarios.
Finally, the Integrate SID for your records (and in case you need it) for this program is: 0E9175.

Recent high-profile data breaches and numerous waves of widely publicised internet
attacks have made everyone nervous about security. Families, small businesses and
other organisations are struggling to figure out how to protect themselves.
Competitive pressures from peers are forcing CSPs to evolve beyond connectivity and offer incremental valueadded
services to sustain revenue growth. Security services are an obvious candidate for consideration since
awareness of the need for security protections is extremely high due to regular media coverage highlighting
Threat trends and strong alignment with large customer segments are creating opportunity for CSPs to offer
a foundational layer of web protection for every Internet access connection. They can provide a previously
unavailable level of web security that reduces the risk their customers face, without imposing a configuration
or management burden.
All three of our stories in this issue of the State of the Internet / Security report are about things most organizations aren’t examining. Whether the cause is that organizations don’t perceive some issues as important to their environment, if they don’t have tooling to monitor these issues, or if the resources to monitor this traffic are not available, this traffic is often being overlooked.
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. These stories create a backdrop for what we expect to see in the upcoming quarters and years.
Media organizations, gaming companies, and the entertainment industry are among the biggest targets of credential stuffing attacks. The people behind these attacks realize the value of an account, whether it’s to a streaming site, a game, or someone’s social media account. And, they’re willing to do whatever it takes to steal them. This report provides an overview of the recent credential stuffing attacks against these sectors and the risks these attacks pose. We’ll also explore some of the ways adversaries conduct these attacks.
Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.
Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) need – and want – cybersecurity. However, with limited resources, they often have to look for outsourced solutions. ISPs are well positioned to address SMBs’ security needs with their ongoing IT relationships, established contacts, and billing connections. Security offerings can help providers improve subscriber engagement, drive incremental revenues, and increase service provider affinity.
This white paper will explore the following:
• SMB exposure on the internet, and unique challenges they face dealing with security threats
• How ISPs can help SMBs address their security exposure
• The market opportunity for SMB security, and how providers can build a business case
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
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.
