By now, you have likely heard the term "Zero Trust". From tech seminars and industry events to webinars and whitepapers, it is popping up everywhere. CISOs and CTOs are constantly inundated with calls and messages from different vendors proclaiming different ways their solutions can help them transition to this security model. At this year's RSA Conference, there was a deluge of vendors touting Zero Trust security solutions and I could

Intercept SaaS Services with the Akamai EAA Client

I was quite fortunate to visit Tokyo for the first time last year, and it was an unforgettable experience to explore all the sights and sounds around the Ginza district and to interact with the very friendly Japanese people. It wasn't all play, though -- and I had to get some real work done as well.

I Am The One Who Knocks -- Device Posture and Detect ...

With growing mobile and remote workforces, enterprises must allow many different device types to access their applications in the name of productivity and flexibility. Traditional, perimeter-based security methods are no longer viable due to complexity, maintenance overhead, and inherently insecure model. Instead, businesses should shift their focus to verifying who and what is accessing a network and eliminating the perimeter.

Data breaches have become incessant. Recently, a very popular airline sevices company revealed a suspected breach involving customer credit card information. Even more recently, a hospital in Indiana reported that a virus had infected some of its systems that caused the hospital to be placed on diversion.

Many companies have their own applications, internal domains, and local area network (LAN). But when it comes to business applications, organizations are increasingly dependent on cloud-based resources. These may include email servers, customer relationship management (CRM) software, or other applications.

Remote access in a software defined world

When I first ventured into technology, I wish someone gave me a heads-up about the bevy of acronyms to remember. It feels like every day a new acronym related to technology is formed. It's hard enough remembering names within my family. During Thanksgiving with a full house, I struggle to remember even my own name! When I first heard of SDN - software defined networking, I was still working for

The days of VPNs are numbered

We have been talking about how it's time to re-evaluate giving full access to the corporate network for some time. In fact, Akamai's Sr. Director of Enterprise Security & Infrastructure Engineering talks about one of his core goals--No VPN--here. Over the last few days, I am sure many teams who are taking the No VPN route are even more thankful. The recent news about yet another patching fire drill--this time
