Websites are indispensable for many companies to build their profits, but as the threat of cyber attacks increases, websites can also be a serious risk factor. Therefore companies need to simultaneously develop both the convenience and security of websites. This whitepaper outlines the optimal solution for smartly achieving these two aims at the same time.
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.
Whether critical applications live in the cloud, in the data center, or both, organizations need a point of control for application security. Learn how you can achieve the security, intelligence, and performance that today's infrastructure demands.
While the choices facing you may seem daunting, the truth is that there’s never been a better time to shop for a web application firewall. WAF technology is now more accessible, affordable, and manageable than ever before—which is a good thing, because companies need the protection a WAF offers now more than ever.

This paper describes the financial implications of Web attacks, DDoS attacks, and other Web-based threats. It shows how the SecureSphere Web Application Firewall provides a Return on Security Investment of 2090% by preventing data breaches and Website downtime.
DDoS attacks are the primary threat to the availability of your network. In 2014, the number of DDoS attacks continues its trend upward in both size and complexity. Today, attacks topping 100Gbps have become common. So have complex threats such as application-layer attacks against DNS and encrypted Web services. Taxing security teams even more is the rise in multi vector attacks which target applications, existing stateful infrastructure like Firewalls and IPS devices and upstream connectivity, all in a single sustained attack.
Webanwendungen sind wertvolle Tools für Unternehmen aller Größen. Sie ermöglichen Kunden die Kommunikation mit Kunden, Interessenten, Mitarbeitern, Partnern und anderen IT-Systemen. Webanwendungen sind naturgemäß offen, interaktiv und stets zugänglich. In ihrem Bericht beleuchten die Analysten von Frost & Sullivan, welche Anbieter von Web Application Firewalls (WAF) es gibt, wie die aktuelle Bedrohungslage für Webanwendungen aussieht und wie die Anbieter diesen Bedrohungen durch Skalierung entgegentreten.
On March 10, 2008, F5, a leader in application delivery, and WhiteHat Security, an innovator in application security assessment, announced they would be partnering to create an integrated Web application assessment and firewall technology. This product integration will incorporate WhiteHat’s Sentinel assessment technology and F5’s ASM attack blocking technology into a single solution.
Forrester has published the results of its research evaluating the 10 most significant web application firewall (WAF) vendors on 33 important criteria. Akamai is proud to be recognized as one of three Leaders in WAFs, with top rankings in both the current offering and strategy categories.
The demand for access to email anywhere, from any device makes it critical for IT to ensure Microsoft Exchange deployments are secure, fast, and available. Learn why a service-oriented security perimeter improves security for Exchange.
With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets.
This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.

DDoS attacks have long been known as the main form of cyber attack risk. “The Financial Inspection Manual” revised by the Japanese government’s Financial Services Agency in April 2015, identifies the risk of "DDoS attacks", and the need to take countermeasures is strongly emphasized. Other government agencies also acknowledge the frequency and severity of DDoS attacks. However, a clear method to completely prevent DDoS attacks has not been established yet. Why is that? What are the best measures that companies can take at the present time?
The web application firewall (WAF) is among the most complex security technologies on the market today. The complexity of managing a WAF includes a pre-defined list of rules to identify thousands of potential exploits, intelligence about new attack vectors, and identifying malicious HTTP requests from legitimate HTTP traffic. Read this white paper to learn how to combine attack detection with threat intelligence using our cloud platform and managed security services to better protect your web applications.
Today, enterprises are extending their businesses by using more web-based and cloud-hosted applications, so a robust and agile web application firewall (WAF) isn't a luxury--it is a requirement. This whitepaper breaksdown some of the key factors you should consider when selecting a WAF to protect your business.
Small-to-medium sized businesses (SMB) are increasingly relying upon web-based applications and web-enabled services for running their business. Applications such as CRM, e-commerce transactions and other web-enabled applications are accessed both locally and remotely from outside the business facilities. These web-based applications are vulnerable to attacks from viruses, intrusions, and denial of service (DoS) attacks, as traffic comes into the network through various ports and firewalls without being inspected.

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement: Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow. Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.
With large data breaches affecting retailers in 2013 and the PCI DSS 3.0 January 1, 2015 deadline approaching, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is an important topic for many organizations in 2014. PCI DSS requirements can be challenging to meet from a time, resources and cost perspective. Requirements 6, 10 and 11 can be some of the most costly and resource intensive, requiring log management, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection and a web application firewall. Alert Logic delivers solutions to meet these and other PCI DSS requirements. As the security industry’s only provider of on-demand log management, threat management, web application security, and IT compliance automation solutions, Alert Logic provides organizations with the easiest and most affordable way to secure their networks and comply with policies and regulations.
