Source: Akamai Technologies
As enterprises move more of their business transactions online, they face the challenge of defending a perimeter that grows increasingly porous. This paper examines current trends in Web application security, assessing the present threat environment as well as limitations in existing approaches to protection. It then looks at how Akamai's new distributed Web Application Firewall solution overcomes these challenges, working as an integral part of a defense-in-depth security architecture to provide robust and scalable protection that is both practical and cost effective.
