My business depends on my domain name being 100% available. How do I ensure my domain name is durable to attack and resilient during Internet stress? After many years of hard work from many Internet engineers and system administrators, Akamai Technologies has been working towards DNS infrastructure that would be ready for service 24/7, 365 days a year with beyond five 9s availability and the architecture to thwart any form
Akamai launched Bot Manager three years ago. Since then, the bot landscape has continued to evolve and we've introduced a number of improvements to our bot detections to stay ahead of it. These included browser fingerprinting and behavioral anomaly detection, as well constantly refining our core bot detections such as request anomaly.
Today, Akamai announced the March 2019 Release with new features and capabilities across its security, performance, and media product lines - with a focus on helping customers better manage their cloud migration initiatives. Within security, Akamai has made updates to every product line to help organizations better protect your apps and APIs, stop credential stuffing, and move to zero trust.
The short answer is no. As expected, the long answer is a little more nuanced. But first, a quick refresher on Zero Trust security for those who haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet. (For those who have, feel free to skip the next section.)
By Asaf Nadler and Lior Lahav Ramnit is a family of trojans that allows attackers to remotely control infected machines, in order steal personal and banking information , and open backdoors to download additional malware . Initial versions of Ramnit appeared in late 2011 and infected more than 800,000 Windows PCs . In May 2018, Ramnit was observed in the "Black" botnet, and was responsible for infecting more than 100,000
As a security professional, no one knows better than you that the attack surface is shifting and continues to expand across an ever-widening area. Our interconnected digital lives are wreaking havoc with the idea of "the perimeter." As digital attacks continue to grow in size and volume, and are increasingly targeted, knowing what defense posture you need to deploy to stay safe is being redefined right before your eyes. That's
As mentioned in the 2018 Year in Review State of the Internet / Security report, trends in DDoS are remarkably stable. The size of the largest attacks have grown by approximately 6% on an annual basis, with occasional outliers like the Mirai botnet. The median size of attacks has been much more changeable, with a cyclic growth and retreat on a two year basis. Unluckily, the ebb of DDoS is
Authentication might be the single biggest hazard for web security over the next decade. It's not that the fundamentals of authentication are particularly challenging; we've understood the basic principles behind password management, push-based authorization, and device certificates for some time. But managing those at scale, and navigating to a more secure world -- maybe one without passwords someday -- requires a level of investment and focus that is, for most
The breathtaking pace at which everyone and everything is becoming connected is having a profound effect on digital business, from delivering exceptional experiences, to ensuring the security of your customers, applications, and workforce.
