Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually.1 According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands.2 No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.3 Ransomware is the equivalent of catastrophic data loss, except

Until recently, security teams for organizations in many industries believed they didn’t need to worry about DDoS attacks, but the latest data from the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report indicates that businesses of all sizes in nearly every industry run the risk of being attacked.¹ IoT devices are increasingly compromised, recruited into botnets, and offered up by their creators as for-hire DDoS services. Additionally, there are numerous DDoS tools and services that are easily accessible and easy to use, even for the untechnical novice.

Because of widespread password reuse, Account Takeover (ATO) attacks have become an extremely lucrative business for cybercriminals. Organized crime rings are performing ATO attacks at a massive scale by leveraging botnet-infected armies to attempt credential-stuffing attacks against various web and mobile applications. Cyber criminals exploit compromised accounts for financial gain by pilfering financial or personally identifiable information (PII) directly or by selling access to these accounts on underground markets.

As fraudsters grow in sophistication and experience, they often aren’t acting alone. Syndicated crime rings are big business around the world. In the fraud economy, different fraudsters specialize in different aspects of the attack, from gathering data and creating profiles of targeted victims, to socially engineering call center agents, to creating tools like robotic dialers. These fraudsters might work alone, selling their skills on the black market. In other cases, fraudsters are running entire call centers overseas dedicated to executing attacks.

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. You’ll learn: 10 s

The traditional approach to cybersecurity has been to use a prevention-centric strategy focused on blocking attacks. While prevention-centric approaches do stop many threats, many of today’s advanced and motivated threat actors are circumventing these defenses with creative, stealthy, targeted, and persistent attacks that often go undetected for significant periods of time.

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?

By 2021, cyber attacks are expected to cause $6 trillion in damages worldwide. To combat, spending is predicted to hit $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021. Attackers benefit from an infinite amount of time and tactics at their disposal, as they work to get around the typical static network and endpoint defenses organizations put in place. Deception can complement endpoint and network defenses, adding dynamic security mechanisms that can be customized for every environment to take the attacker’s advantage away. While endpoint and network security protects you from being compromised, deception mitigates the effects of a compromise by detecting it early and identifying the attacker intent which helps coordinate a faster and better response. Read this white paper to find out more.

Enterprise’s are increasingly under threat from sophisticated attacks. In fact, research has found that threats dwell in a customer’s environment an average of 190 days1. These Advanced Persistent Threats use stealthy techniques to evade detection and bypass traditional security defenses. Once an advanced attack gains access to a customer environment the attacker has many tools to evade detection and begin to exploit valuable resources and data. Security teams face multiple challenges when attempting to detect and fully expose the extent of an advanced attack including manual searches through large and disparate data sources, lack of visibility into critical control points, alert fatigue from false positives, and difficulty identifying and fixing impacted endpoints.

Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.

DDoS attacks can impair your website, tarnish your brand, and impact your bottom line. Conventional security products like firewalls and intrusion prevention systems and newer cloud-based scrubbing services can’t protect your DNS infrastructure against today’s increasingly sophisticated attacks. The best way to defend against DDoS attacks is to trust the operation of your DNS infrastructure to a managed service provider that lives and breathes DNS. Best-of-breed managed DNS providers operate global anycast networks that mitigate DDoS threats to keep your online business up and running.

The DNS is an often-overlooked protocol. Historically, many companies believed they could either run their own DNS service in-house or simply use a bundled option provided by their hosting or CDN provider. However, with the rise in DDoS attacks and continued migration to the cloud, the mission-critical nature of the DNS has become quite apparent to companies around the world. As a result, many are searching for a managed DNS provider.
