In addition to brute force/scale based attacks, attackers often probe for, and then take advantage of, application vulnerabilities to steal data or pursue financial gain. This means that, in addition to a Web security solution's scale and performance, organizations should consider how architecture and adaptability will enable a solution's efficacy. How well will the platform's architecture lend itself to defending against new attacks that haven't yet been discovered? And how quickly will it detect and identify those new attacks before it can mitigate them?
This white paper examines these topics with a focus on:
- Improving security with a learning platform
- Preventing direct-to-origin attacks
- Defending against both network-layer and application layer DDoS attacks
- Defending against data theft
- Integrating into a layered security ecosystem
- When a managed security service makes sense
