Today, cyberattacks around the world are becoming more prevalent and complex. Last year alone, we saw seven of the largest Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks in history. Hackers use DDoS and web application attacks to render IT systems inoperable, steal data, and deface websites which are extremely difficult to defend against – state, local, and education entities are prime targets for these attacks.
An organization cannot be fully protected if it doesn’t take into account threats that can emerge from within the enterprise system. This is comparable to when an employee opens up an innocuous email that turns out to be malware or a phishing campaign. Once a hacker uses this method to breach a system, they can move laterally within an environment and access sensitive data. Akamai provides enterprise solutions to defend against these types of attacks by scanning outbound requests for any malicious software.
