Akamai Enterprise Threat Protector: Advanced Threat Protection in the Cloud
As enterprises adopt Direct Internet Access (DIA), SaaS applications, cloud services, mobility, and the Internet of Things (IoT), their attack surface increases dramatically and they are faced with a host of new challenges. Protecting the organization and users against advanced targeted threats such as malware, phishing, and data exfiltration becomes exponentially more difficult. Security control-point complications and complexities and security gaps in legacy solutions have to be managed. Enterprise Threat Protector (ETP) is a Secure Internet Gateway (SIG) that enables security teams to ensure that users and devices can securely connect to the Internet wherever they happen to be, without the intricacy associated with other legacy security solutions. Enterprise Threat Protector is powered by real-time threat intelligence based on Akamai’s unprecedented global insights into Internet and Domain Name System (DNS) traffic.
