Marketers can personalize interactions using information that spans complete anonymity to full authentication, with a middle range in which identified data may be used intermittently.
The distinction between anonymous and authenticated hinges on personally identifiable information (PII)—information that can be used alone, in combination, or in context to contact an individual.
This information includes unique and partial identifiers such as name, address, phone number, and email address, as well as financial, employment, or other data associated with an individual.
This whitepaper gives a broad overview of the ways in which Akamai can help organizations bolster the security of their Web-based assets, with capabilities ranging across the application, network, and DNS layers, as well as solutions focused on Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation and business continuity.
Every cloud security vendor will give you impressive-sounding metrics for cloud security. But what do they really mean? Our infographic explains which metrics really matter, and what questions you need to ask to get them.
Targeted threats are increasing at an alarming rate. Malicious actors are evolving their methodologies and are increasingly exploiting the domain name system (DNS) to launch cyberattacks. Learn more about how to proactively protect your company with an additional layer of cloud-based security.
It’s likely not a matter of if, but when your company will fall prey to targeted attack involving malware, ransomware, data exfiltration, or phishing. In fact, 70% of organizations reported a security incident that negatively impacted their business in the past year. Learn more about the realities of cybercrime in today’s hyperconnected world.
Cybercriminals are evolving. Increasingly, they are capitalizing on the open and unprotected nature of the Domain Name System (DNS) to launch damaging phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. How are you proactively protecting your network and users from these targeted threats? Here are five things to ask yourself as you consider a DNS security solution for your company.
With the constant drumbeat of news reports about security breaches, cyber security is hard to ignore. Organizations understand that they need comprehensive security solutions, yet significant gaps remain. Malicious actors have evolved their methods to leverage the vulnerabilities of the Domain Name System (DNS), and attacks that utilize this vector are increasing in number.
DNS is a well-worn data exfiltration and communication vector. Explore why targeted threats continue to use the DNS protocol to exfiltrate sensitive information, how it’s done, and what might be next in the evolution of this attack vector.
Examine the business impact of malware, ransomware, and phishing, as well as the cost of the average data breach. Given the significant economic impact of these threats, understanding your financial exposure and employing a layered defense simply makes sense.
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.
Having the right tools and establishing key processes in advance can help prevent or mitigate the impact of a DDoS attack. Learn more by downloading this complimentary toolkit with research and best practices from Gartner and Arbor Networks.
This Frost & Sullivan whitepaper provides an overview of the latest DDoS attack trends, and offers examples of how cloud service and hosting providers can use Arbor Networks solutions to protect their data centers from DDoS attacks and increase revenue by offering Arbor-based, managed DDoS protection services.
How Snapper Further Protects Data in Amazon S3 Using CWP for Storage
Abstract: Snapper, a New Zealand-based company that develops custom account-based solutions, was creating an online concessions payment program for local students and needed a way to enhance the security of their personal information on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The solution had to further protect online student profiles and associated payment details stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) against malware and threats. Snapper chose Symantec Cloud Workload Protection for Storage (CWP for Storage) for its advanced malware protection, elastic scalability, and simple deployment requiring only a few hours.

If your organization runs VMware vSphere-based cloud infrastructure in your on-premises data center, but you have been reluctant to migrate applications to the cloud for fear of losing some VMware vSphere-based cloud capabilities, VMware Cloud on AWS solves this problem by seamlessly integrating your familiar VMware virtualization and cloud management tools with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Many organizations believe that moving their applications to the cloud makes it necessary to introduce new tools, skills, and processes. This can present a new set of challenges because learning to use new tools, applying new skills, and adapting to new processes can be costly and time-consuming.
In this eBook, we dive deeper into how these challenges can hinder hybrid cloud adoption and cover how VMware Cloud on AWS can help your organization overcome these challenges.

Cisco and Amazon Web Services (AWS) believe not only in making it simple to connect to the cloud, but also to protect your cloud services. Security is not just an on-premises or a cloud thing. It’s every-“thing” and everywhere. Gaining pervasive security means you need visibility across your entire IT environment to help you effectively identify and mitigate security threats.
Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud provides scalable visibility and delivers secure network behavioral analysis across on-premises and AWS environments to help identify anomalous activity that could indicate a security threat. This self-learning security solution continually refines its behavioral models as it monitors your environment, ultimately improving its functionality and reducing the costs required for manual security checks and updates.
