Web Security Threats and Mitigations

Read our White Paper: "A Guide to Multi-Layered Web Security"

Web security used to be deceptively simple: just protect the perimeter of the data center with firewalls, border protection and strict access privileges. Fast forward to the cloud and there’s a new age of cybersecurity threats targeting websites and business-critical applications. A sound IT security strategy must include ample defense measures against the current threats posed by cyber criminals.

Practicing good web-application hygiene can eliminate many application-layer vulnerabilities. Security solutions aren’t one-size-fits-all, and security solutions must extend beyond the perimeter and into the Cloud. Research indicates that outage costs associated with a DDoS attack can cost an Internet-reliant company US$1 million before mitigation even begins.

The size of volumetric DoS and DDoS attacks has grown volumetrically; Akamai predicts that by 2020, the average DDoS attack will generate 1.5 Tbps of network traffic. How can you fight back and protect your organization against today’s threats?"

In this white paper, you’ll learn:

  1. Current cyber security threats
  2. How to secure websites and applications
  3. Types of cybersecurity solutions available
  4. How to choose a web security solution
  5. How to make your network less vulnerable to attack
  6. Countermeasures that are most effective for a strong DDoS defense
