As organizations are moving to AWS to gain the operational efficiencies of the cloud, they’re realizing the importance of a well-architected framework. This framework, which consists of twelve pillars, is well-intended, secure, and compliant, but is not exactly easy to achieve. Our clients frequently tell us that two pillars in particular-- Security and Cost Optimization--are the most difficult to get right. This is partially because while advanced tooling is required to manage cloud complexities and compliance, selecting, deploying, and operating these tools is costly and burdensome. Without optimizing your environment for these two pillars, you are preventing your organization from scaling up. This has resulted in many businesses that are restricted to a minimal use of AWS, negating any benefit of having adopted the cloud in the first place. AHEAD uses the AWS Well-Architected Framework, which will walk you through missteps and how to get it right.

Quality matters, but despite advances made in video streaming technology, delivering great quality live video over the Internet is still not easy. There are challenges with predicting the scale and potential audience location; challenges with managing complex encoder and origin technology; challenges of delivering video securely and reliably over the Internet; and challenges of protecting live streams. Add to that the range of devices, the complexity of live event production, and the demand for HD and 4K image quality and you get a scenario that is more complicated than ever before.

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple screens across devices. To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile, high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective online distribution channel. This requires f

The rapid rate of mobile adoption provides today’s users with nearly unlimited access to data and information anytime, anywhere. While “always on” users represent a tremendous opportunity for businesses to increase engagement, revenue, and customer loyalty, they also create unprecedented mobile delivery challenges. In this e-book, we will delve into these challenges and learn how to master them by optimizing for fast APIs, mobile apps, and mobile sites. But before we do that, let’s start our mobile story with some perspective: Approximately half of you reading this e-book will do so on mobile. That fact alone should be a compelling enough reason to keep reading, but in case it’s not, the following data illustrates the impact mobile growth has had on our technological landscape.

More often than not, performance and security are thought of as two separate issues that require two separate solutions. This is mainly due to the implications posed behind various performance and security products. We typically have either security solutions or performance solutions, but rarely solutions that offer both. As technology has advanced, so have our attackers, finding newer and better ways to impact both the performance and security of a site. With this in mind, it has become even more critical to come up with solutions that bridge the gap between security and performance. But how do we do that? We need to shift the focus to what we can do at the browser by leveraging various frontend techniques, such as web linking and obfuscation, versus solely relying upon the capabilities of a content delivery network (CDN) or the origin. We can take advantage of all the new and emerging frontend technologies to help provide a secure and optimal experience for users—all starting at the

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.

Before organizations can address their bot challenges, they need the ability to detect the many types of bots interacting with their websites and web applications on a daily basis. Bots come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from simple scripts to sophisticated automation tools, and continuously evolve over time. As detection technologies improve, so too do the technologies available to bot operators as they update their bots to evade the latest detection mechanisms. When evaluating a bot management solution, organizations should consider its detection technologies and their effectiveness against the current and future bot landscape, while maintaining the lowest possible level of false positives and negatives.

2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.
