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.

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

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.

DDoS attackers launch hundreds of DDoS attacks every day. When a DDoS attack strikes an organization, panic is common. No one knows why systems and applications are failing, who to call, or what questions to ask. Meanwhile, senior leaders want answers. Planning ahead and being prepared is your best defense against DDoS attacks. This white paper explores best practices for building and maintaining a DDoS protection plan. You’ll learn what to expect from a DDoS attack, how to prepare, what to put in a DDoS runbook, and how to test your plan.

Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems. This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.

DDoS attack size doubled in early 2018 after attackers discovered and employed a new, massive DDoS reflection and amplification method with the potential to multiply their attack resources by a factor of 500K. The attack vector, called memcached UDP reflection, uses resources freely exposed on the internet — no malware or botnet required.

In our first cyber security checklist, we provided a security overview and best practices to help organizations prevent an initial compromise from occurring. In this guide, we will help you understand practical steps you can take to mitigate techniques attackers use once they have penetrated your defenses. Once attackers have access to a machine, they can evade detection by using fileless techniques and legitimate system administration tools to do their dirty work. With this checklist, you will have a guide to help mitigate the impact of an attacker. Lastly, we will hep you understand how partnering with a company like Alert Logic can provide better defenses to stop attackers in their tracks. This checklist helps to explain how to: • How to manage and limit PowerShell access • Securing and utilizing Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) • Ways to apply application controls • Following the principle of least privilege and applying access controls • What to monitor for to help uncover

Attackers are becoming increasingly skilled at planting malicious code on websites frequented by their desired targets, commonly called "watering hole" attacks. These can be very difficult to detect since they happen as users are going about their normal business. Join us for a live demo showing an example of such an attack, and how to detect it immediately using AlienVault USM. You'll learn: • Common browser vulnerabilities used to execute these attacks • What attackers do next to take control of the system • How to catch it before the attacker moves further into your network

Have you ever wondered how the bad guys actually get control of a system? And, how they convert that system into a data-syphoning droid? Join AlienVault security engineer, Tom D'Aquino as he walks you through the steps of a system compromise and how detect these nefarious activities at every stage. You'll learn: • How attackers exploit vulnerabilities to take control of systems • What they do next to find & exfiltrate valuable data • How to catch them before the damage is done with AlienVault USM Using a real-world example of a common vulnerability, Tom will show you how AlienVault USM gives you the evidence you need to stop an attack in its tracks.
