F5 safeguards digital experiences with account takeover protection
5 has announced multiple
F security offerings to bridge security and fraud team operations that help customers block automated and human-driven malicious activity , shield valuable user details and stop fraud . The new solutions extend F5 ’ s Shape Security portfolio of SaaS and managed services to protect customers , applications and APIs Against Account Takeover ( ATO ) while delivering better digital experiences at every touchpoint .
Any organisation issuing or accepting digital payments is an ATO target . Once an account is compromised , a fraudster may drain funds , purchase goods or services or access payment information to use on other sites – alienating customers and eroding revenue .
Leading security and fraud prevention techniques eliminate automated and human attacks across numerous threat vectors . Organisations can better defend against bots targeting their web properties and those of third-party providers with Aggregator Management , recognise legitimate users throughout the customer journey with Authentication Intelligence and rapidly gain insight into client-side digital skimming attacks with Client- Side Defense . Coupled with the rapid removal of post-login fraud via Account Protection , F5 Shape provides an endto-end approach that assesses intent , streamlines digital experiences , and halts ATO attempts otherwise leading to fraud , lost revenue , and reduced customer loyalty .
F5 ’ s complementary solutions now offer a comprehensive account takeover protection on a single platform .
Trend Micro prediction report forecasts cyber fightback in 2022
rend Micro , a global
T cybersecurity leader , has predicted global organisations will emerge more alert and better prepared in 2022 thanks to a comprehensive , proactive , cloud-first approach to mitigating cyber-risk .
Research , foresight and automation are critical for organisations to manage risk and secure their workforce . Trend Micro blocked 40.9 billion email threats , malicious files and malicious URLs for customers in the first half of 2021 alone – a 47 % year-over-year increase .
“ It ’ s been a tough couple of years for cybersecurity teams , disrupted by work-from-home mandates and challenged as corporate attack surfaces have exploded in size ,” said Jon Clay , Vice President of Threat Intelligence , Trend Micro .
“ However , as hybrid work emerges and more certainty returns day-to-day , security leaders will be able to plot a robust strategy to plug gaps and make the bad guys work much harder .”
Trend Micro researchers predict that threat actors in 2022 will focus ransomware attacks on cloud and data centre workloads and exposed services to take advantage of the large number of employees continuing to work from home .
Vulnerabilities will be weaponised in record time and chained with privilege escalation bugs to drive successful campaigns , according to the report .
