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 have to know the threats to stop them. It's not a question of if – but when and how – Internet criminals will get into your network.
The Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report highlights the most current security concerns, such as shifts in malware, trends in vulnerabilities, and the revival of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
The cloud is a network of servers housing data, software, and services. Cloud services are commonly accessed via the Internet, instead of locally in a data center. Businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud for cybersecurity for two key reasons: 1. Due to a changing threat landscape, there’s a need for more scale, accuracy, experience, and collective intelligence. These resources are out of reach internally for most organizations. 2. There are fundamental limits with on-premises hardware mitigation appliances and enterprise data centers for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and web attack protection.
Die Cloud ist ein Servernetzwerk, das Daten, Software und Services umfasst. Auf Clouddienste wird für gewöhnlich über das Internet, und nicht lokal in einem Rechenzentrum, zugegriffen. Wenn es um Cybersicherheit geht, verlassen sich immer mehr Unternehmen auf die Cloud. Die zwei Hauptgründe: 1. Aufgrund der sich ständig ändernden Bedrohungslandschaft wird immer mehr Umfang, Genauigkeit, Erfahrung und kollektive Intelligenz benötigt. Diese Anforderungen können die meisten Unternehmen intern nicht erfüllen. 2. Lokale Appliances und Unternehmensrechenzentren haben prinzipiell ihre Grenzen, wenn es um Abwehrmechanismen gegen DDoS- (Distributed Denial of Service) und Webangriffe geht.

Stories about devastating cyberattacks are plaguing the news. Why? The DNS protocol is easy to exploit. See your network the way hackers do—as an easy target. Learn how you can effectively secure your DNS infrastructure today.
Die Erhöhung von DDoS-Angriffen kurbelt die Nachfrage an umfassenden Lösungen an
“This market engineering study comes at a time when DDoS attacks are accelerating in purpose, sophistication, complexity, scale, and frequency.
Businesses of all size have proven to be susceptible to these attacks, and though DDoS is not a new concern, the risk of DDoS attack probability and potential for damages is at an all-time high. As a result, DDoS mitigation is a top-of-mind consideration for IT and security organizations around the world, and demand for DDoS mitigation solutions is growing rapidly.”
West Coast Labs performed a comparison test on a range of email solutions (appliances, software, and hosted service solutions) to measure their relative spam detection rates over
a series of at least 100,000 genuine spam emails using West Coast Labs real-time spam feed.
Webanwendungs- und DDoS-Angriffe lassen sich nicht vorhersehen und treffen Unternehmen ohne Vorwarnung. Für die meisten DDoS-Angriffe (Distributed Denial of Service) ist nicht viel Know-how erforderlich. Angreifer können günstig Ressourcen mieten, die auf entsprechenden Seiten leicht zu finden sind. Trotz des geringen Preises führen DDoS-Angriffe zu vielen Problemen:
• Verlust vertraulicher Daten
• Niedrigere Nutzerproduktivität
• Beeinträchtigung von Partnerschaften und Kundenbeziehungen
Je nach Branche können sich so schnell Schäden von Zehntausenden US-Dollar ergeben – in einigen Fällen geht der Schaden sogar in die Millionen. Nur 2 % der Unternehmen gaben an, ihre Webanwendungen seien in den vergangenen 12 Monaten nicht Opfer eines Angriffs geworden. Bei 98 % war das Gegenteil der Fall.
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.

According to the Ponemon Institute, the annual cost of malware breaches averaged $8.4 million. Read this white paper to gain insights into critical information to safeguard against DNS security threats and disrupt malware communications to your DNS servers.
On June 20, Akamai Technologies mitigated one the largest confirmed Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks of the year. Read the case study to learn more about the attack, including payload samples and sources.
For cybersecurity professionals, 2016 presented a year of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that were unprecedented. Week after week, the public was inundated with news of hacks, attacks, and data leaks. It didn’t take long for everybody to realize the old axiom of cybersecurity still holds true - there are two types of companies: those who are hacked and know about it, and those who are hacked and soon will find out. As a key player in the war against DDoS attacks, Neustar has been on the front line, detecting, alerting, and mitigating strikes to keep companies and their customers safe.
Financial services companies have been the target of a serious, sustained, and well-funded DDoS campaign for more than a year. What these attacks have continued to demonstrate is that DDoS will continue to be a popular and increasingly complex attack vector. DDoS is no longer simply a network issue, but is increasingly a feature or additional aspect of other advanced targeted attacks. The motivation of modern attackers can be singular, but the threat landscape continues to become more complex and mixes various threats to increase the likelihood of success. There have certainly been cases where the MSSP was successful at mitigating against an attack but the target Website still went down due to corruption of the underlying application and data. In order to defend networks today, enterprises need to deploy DDoS security in multiple layers, from the perimeter of their network to the provider cloud, and ensure that on-premise equipment can work in harmony with provider networks for effective and robust attack mitigation

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks have become a fact of life for any business with a web presence. Whether you’re an enterprise, e-commerce business, local organization, or government offce—it’s merely a matter of time before you’re going to have to deal with the inevitable DDoS attack. The question is what can you do before an attack so you can have adequate defenses already in place.
This handbook is a practical guide for planning and executing a DDoS response plan. It outlines pragmatic steps and best practices for choosing and setting up the right mitigation solution for your organization, how to authoritatively respond to an attack, and conduct a thorough post-attack analysis for developing follow-up defense strategies.
