Encryption is necessary to protect online data in transit from being compromised. But the threat is continuously evolving. Bad actors are now leveraging SSL-based encryption to hide malicious activity from existing security controls and technology.
Media coverage is omnipresent. But do DDoS attacks have any real-world financial ramifications? Depends on the business or industry, but the short answer is yes.
The cost of a data breach has steadily increased over the past several years, hitting $3.79 million, up from $3.5 million in 2015, according to the Ponemon Institute. In response, organizations are stepping up security practices, including data encryption. Encrypting a record can reduce its breach-related costs more than any other measure and extending this to communications is critical.
In a study commissioned by A10 Networks, Ponemon surveyed 1,023 IT and IT security practitioners in North America and EMEA who are involved in preventing and/or detecting Web-based attacks and are familiar with their organization's network traffic inspection.
Encrypted traffic accounts for a large and growing percentage of all network traffic. While the adoption of SSL, and its successor, Transport Layer Security (TLS), should be cause for celebration - as encryption improves confidentiality and message integrity - it also puts organizations at risk.
This whitepaper is for security and networking professionals charged with protecting their networks against the debilitating effects of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.<br/>In this paper, we define and classify current DDoS threats and outline, with examples, the toolkits, apps and services used to perpetrate them, with details about how our solution provides a defense.
To prevent attacks, intrusions and malware, enterprises need to inspect incoming and outgoing traffic for threats. Unfortunately, attackers are increasingly turning to encryption to evade detection. With more and more applications supporting SSL - in fact, is expected to account for 67% of Internet traffic by the end of 2016.
Healthcare professionals are highly motivated to provide great care to patients. But imagine how much more effective and productive they could be with a truly mobile, anywhere, anytime, digital workspace.
As IT organizations strive to optimize their hybrid cloud deployments there will be a need to find new opportunities for cost savings. Because getting more budget is unlikely, these cost savings may very well be key to meeting the demand for further digital-enabled business innovations.
