A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.
The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.

Imperva, an APN Security Competency Partner, can help protect your application workloads on AWS with the Imperva SaaS Web Application Security
platform. The Imperva high-capacity network of globally distributed security services protects websites against all types of DDoS threats, including networklevel Layer 3 and Layer 4 volumetric attacks—such as synchronized (SYN) floods and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) floods—and Layer 7 application-level
attacks (including the OWASP Top 10 threats) that attempt to compromise application resources. Harnessing real data about current threats from a global
customer base, both the Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDoS protection, incorporate an advanced client classification system that blocks malicious
traffic without interfering with legitimate users. Enterprises can easily create custom security rules in the GUI to enforce their specific security policy. In

DigiCert implemented Imperva to protect their hybrid environment. They
were already using Imperva’s WAF on-premises to defend against Layer 7
attacks, known threats, and zero-day attacks to rapidly identify the threats
that required investigation. By expanding their usage of Imperva, DigiCert
was able to extend protection to AWS and maintain their security posture
both during and after migration.
Imperva’s sophisticated threat detection technology draws upon vast
experience in the WAF market. As traffic passes through their network,
advanced client classification technology (together with crowdsourcing
and IP reputation data) automatically analyzes it to identify and block web
application attacks. These include SQL injection, cross-site scripting, illegal
resource access, comment spam, site scraping, malicious bots, and other
top threats. Granular filters and controls reduce false positives and prevent
access from unwanted visitors, while IP address shielding hides the web

The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS

Imagine if you could see deep into the future. And way back into the past, both at the same time. Imagine having visibility of everything that had ever happened and everything that was ever going to happen, everywhere, all at once.
And then imagine processing power strong enough to make sense of all this data in every language and in every dimension. Unless you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going to have some unknowns in your world.

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.
Ponemon Institute surveyed 569 individuals in IT security who are familiar with credential stuffing and are responsible for the security of their companies’ Internet properties. The survey identified key stats about credential stuffing, including the costs organizations incur to prevent damage, and the financial consequences when attackers succeed.
According to respondents, these attacks cause costly application downtime, loss of customers, and involvement of IT security that can result in a cost of millions of dollars. The survey highlights the challenges in identifying who is accessing their websites using stolen credentials, as well as the difficulty in preventing and remediating these attacks.
Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) face many challenges as they adapt to today’s new style of doing business. Shifting government regulations, threats to network security, requirements for 24x7 application availability and the demands for new methods to work with customers, suppliers and employees require ongoing investments in IT. These issues impact SMBs even harder because of budget constraints and limited IT resources. SMB’s who learn how to efficiently utilize IT assets and increase IT productivity will be successful.
