Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems.
This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.
Keeping your data safe requires forward-thinking approaches to cybersecurity. Learn how you can augment your existing on-premise infrastructure with security measures in the cloud for a more robust web security posture.

When it comes to IT infrastructure, it’s fair to say the perimeter has left the premises. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, today’s attack surface presents a growing challenge to CISOs looking to understand and reduce their cyber risk. To combat this issue, a discipline called Cyber Exposure is emerging to help organizations manage and measure this risk. This ebook provides insights on how CISOs are addressing the modern attack surface.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

"Financial services institutions are high-value targets for cyberattacks because of the capital they control, the personal information on customers they maintain, and the fear an attack on a bank generates in the public.
Phishing attacks on FSIs have risen steadily, especially employee credential theft - because once an employee’s credentials are stolen, cyberattackers can access customer information, employee data, even finances.
While legacy security solutions claim to block up to 99.9 percent of cyberattacks, all it takes is one employee or contractor to open an email from an unknown source, download a file from a compromised website, or in any other way fall victim to a cyberattack.
So, it’s time for a new approach: Isolation, also known as, remote browsing.

"2017 was marked by a significant number of high-profile cyber breaches. Web malware and phishing played a critical role in the vast majority of these attacks.
Watch this webinar to learn from two of the industry’s leading experts – Gartner Research Analyst Peter Firstbrook and Menlo Security CTO Kowsik Guruswamy:
*Why web malware and phishing are so pervasive in today's cyber attacks
*What the shortcomings of today’s reactive security philosophy are
*Why the web continues to present a risk to businesses
*How organizations rethink their security strategy moving forward"
"Multi-stage attacks are an increasingly popular approach used by cybercriminals. By sending a malicious attachment in a phishing email that contains an embedded URL, with no malevolent code, attackers can evade existing security solutions, like sandboxes and AV.
How do you prevent these attacks before they happen?
Download this white paper to find out:
*How Menlo Security Labs recently isolated a multi-stage document attack
*What tools, techniques and procedures ( TTPs ) are attackers using to infect victims’ devices
*How Isolation can foil the attack before it can even start
"Despite deploying multiple security layers to defend against cyberattacks, enterprises continue to be infected by web malware and have credentials stolen via phishing. Why is this?
Here’s a 40 minute webinar featuring a representative of a leading insurance company - providing the customer perspective, along with John Pescatore, Director of Emerging Technologies at SANS Institute, and Kowsik Guruswamy, Menlo Security CTO, to answer this. Together, they discuss:
* The shortcomings of today’s reactive security philosophy
* Why the web continues to present a risk to businesses
* The benefits of embracing Isolation
* How organizations should rethink their security strategy moving forward"
The risk of cyber attacks and the cost of failure are increasing. Penalties associated with failure are only going to increase. And these challenges are compounded by increasing collaboration, use of cloud-based solutions, and an increasingly mobile workforce.

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon.
Many clues are out there—and obvious.
The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and
users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses
and evade detection.
The report also highlights major findings from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, which examines the security posture of enterprises and their perceptions of their preparedness to defend against attacks.
An optimized hybrid IT infrastructure enables innovative business outcomes—but rapid IT transformation also creates new risks, threats and vulnerabilities. Coupled with increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks and complex regulatory pressures, managing risk in today’s digital environment becomes even more critical to the enterprise.

Searching for a Cloud Security Provider can be confusing. Many providers appear the same at first glance: similar metrics, similar promises. The fact is, the information you need to make a real comparison requires asking questions and probing for details that cloud services vendors don’t always volunteer. Use this list to be sure you’ve covered the essential elements for choosing the right cloud security provider to protect your organization from malicious cyberattacks.
Today’s threat landscape is nothing like that of just 10 years ago. Simple attacks that caused containable damage have given way to modern cybercrime operations that are sophisticated, well-funded, and capable of causing major disruptions to organizations and the national infrastructure. Not only are these advanced attacks difficult to detect, but they also remain in networks for long periods of time and amass network resources to launch attacks elsewhere.
Traditional defenses that rely exclusively on detection and blocking for protection are no longer adequate. It’s time for a new security model that addresses the full attack continuum—before, during, and after an attack.
The Cisco® 2016 Midyear Cybersecurity Report—which presents research, insights, and perspectives from Cisco Security Research—updates security professionals on the trends covered in our previous security report while also examining developments that may affect the security landscape later this year.
MIT Technology Review Survey: Executive Summary
Are you prepared for the next breach? Only 6% of leaders say yes.
Information security—or, the lack of it—is firmly on the radar for business and IT leaders in organizations of all sizes and in every sector. Many fear that their companies are ill-prepared to prevent, detect, and effectively respond to various types of cyberattacks, and a shortage of in-house security expertise remains of widespread concern.
Those are among the initial findings of the Cybersecurity Challenges, Risks, Trends, and Impacts Survey, conducted by MIT Technology Review of approx. 225 business and IT executives, in partnership with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Security Services and FireEye Inc.
Cyberattacks are now a fact of life. Yet detection still lags. In 2015, the median amount of time attackers spent inside organizations before detection was 146 days. Why are we so vulnerable?
MIT Technology Review asks Andrzej Kawalec, chief technology officer for HPE Security Services and Marshall Heilman, vice-president and executive director at Mandiant, a FireEye company, what we can do to make our systems more secure.
Is your organization prepared for a cyberattack? Most aren’t.
86% of organizations surveyed lack adequate cybersecurity capabilities. Read MIT Technology Review’s latest infographic, based on their survey of 225 business and IT leaders, and learn if you have cybersecurity holes and how to patch them.
To understand your organization’s risk profile: “You should start with a simple question: What are your digital assets and the cyber threats facing them,” says HPE Security Services CTO, Andrzej Kawalec.
Watch the MIT Technology Review interview with HPE’s Kawalec and FireEye's Vitor Desouza in order to protect your organization from what has become daily, even hourly, attacks for many.
Research conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), sponsored by Oracle,
provides answers. The results show that a proactive security strategy backed by a fully
engaged C-suite and board of directors reduced the growth of cyber-attacks and
breaches by 53% over comparable firms. These findings were compiled from responses
by 300 firms, across multiple industries, against a range of attack modes and over a
two-year period from February 2014 to January 2016.
The lessons are clear. As cyber-attackers elevate their game, the response must be an
enterprise solution. Only C-suites and boards of directors marshal the authority and
resources to support a truly enterprise-wide approach. In sum, proactive cyber-security
strategies, supported by senior management, can cut vulnerability to cyber-attack in half.
