Type:  White Paper
Length:  9 pages

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
