Web application and DDoS attacks hit enterprises without warning or reason. Most Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks require little skill to launch with attackers can simply rent resources from DDoS-for-hire sites at a low cost.. In comparison, DDoS attacks typically result in: • Operational disruption • Loss of confidential data • Lost user productivity • Reputational harm • Damage to partner and customer relations • Lost revenue Depending on your industry, that could add up to tens of thousands of dollars in damage – and in some cases it could be millions. Only 2% of organizations said their web applications had not been compromised in the past 12 months – 98% said they had.

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.

Today, digital security is top-of-mind. From the boardroom to the backroom, everyone is asking the same questions, “How do we protect our digital experiences? How do we ensure our website is safe for our visitors? How do we make sure that no one can steal our content?” But safeguarding a digital experience isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. It often involves multiple techniques and layers of security. From verifying your identity (with HTTPS) to encrypting sensitive data to restricting access and protecting multimedia content, you must approach security in a layered manner, employing multiple means and techniques to protect the digital content through which your audience interacts. This paper explores ten different methods and technologies that an organization can employ to protect its content. This multi-layered approach can effectively protect your digital content, ensure high availability, and maintain superior quality of experience for every digital visitor. You’ll learn: 10 s

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems.

The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex, and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation initiatives. Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Independent technology research firm Forrester evaluated web application firewall (WAF) vendors and published the results in The Forrester Wave™: Web Application Firewalls, Q2 2018. Akamai Technologies emerged as one of the leaders after a comprehensive evaluation on 33 criteria. The report states that security pros require a WAF that will automatically protect web applications, stay ahead of zero-day attacks and protect new application formats including APIs and serverless architectures. The report also reveals detailed findings for the 10 most significant WAF vendors. Akamai’s Kona Site Defender was the top scorer in the zero-day attacks criterion and one of the select vendors rated a Leader, the highest-ranking level in the report.
