Keeping an Eye on Credential Abuse Attacks

Akamai Edge conference is here and I'm really excited to share some of my insights and thoughts about credential abuse attacks in my session "Akamai Threat Research into Credentials Abuse".

Credential abuse attacks become a common disturbing threat in recent years, a successful credential abuse attack campaign can result with a potential damage that include losing access and control over the accounts, data breach and even fraudulent transactions.

One of the sessions at the upcoming Akamai Edge Conference 2016 will be 'Exploring User Expectations for Business Critical SaaS Applications'. This session will be hosted by Robert Mahowald; Group Vice President at IDC who leads IDC's worldwide application and cloud services practices. Robert will share findings key insights from the recent Akamai sponsored IDC 2016 SaaS User Requirements survey. We caught up with Robert recently to learn more about the survey and what he would be sharing with Edge attendees.

These API's are critical to us...without them, we're hurting. - Terry Drozdowski, Director of Engineering, Exceda.

At Akamai, we believe the future of the Internet lies in the hands of the developers and architects who tackle hard problems every day. With our Open Platform Initiative, we simplified access to the Akamai Intelligent Platform for better and easier integration with home-grown and third party technologies and applications. The initiative exposes the power and breadth of Akamai - over 200,000 servers at the farthest reaches at the Edge of the Internet, petabytes of distributed storage, and terabytes of global bandwidth. By providing this technology, our customers and partners can design the next killer application to deliver innovative web experiences while removing all the inherent impediments of building applications on the raw Internet.

Earlier you had to choose, should you personalize or cache everything... we wanted to do both. -- Fredrik Ahlen (CTO)

The business decision had been made. Fredrik Ahlen (CTO) and Patrik Wallin (Lead Developer) of Health & Sports Nutrition Group (Gymgrossisten) were going to undergo a personalization overhaul to increase conversion rates. This meant personalizing nearly everything -- category pages, product pages, product recommendations and more. It was up to Fredrik and Patrik to make this happen on a site running on an e-commerce platform long past it's lifetime and offering poor website performance, poor stability, and limited personalization.
