Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM), the world’s largest and most trusted cloud delivery platform, has released new research in a report titled, “The State of Media Security.” Based on a survey of 200 U.S. media technology influencers and decision makers conducted by BizTechInsights, the report aims to evaluate and better understand how media companies are securing their online properties. Among key findings is that slow site performance and downtime is the number one security-related concern among media leaders.
The report also takes a deep dive into the most common types of attacks media organizations’ over-the-top (OTT) properties are facing, the measures currently in place to combat those attacks, top security challenges and concerns, and how they are addressing the management of bots – which can account for up to 60 percent of website traffic according to Akamai observations. Notable findings include:
“Media companies are online businesses, operating websites and maintaining a wide variety of proprietary and sensitive information. They need to broaden their perspective on security and look closely at approaches like zero trust architectures and protecting enterprise applications to secure their content along with everything around it,” said Dave Lewis, senior global security advocate at Akamai. “Steps are being taken to address common threats like DDoS, bots and web application attacks, but almost none of the media influencers we surveyed are very confident their organizations are protected, indicating that businesses have a long way to go on the security front. At a broader level, it’s going to take media companies coming together as a community to establish forums, industry standards and closer connections with government bodies to move the confidence needle and create a more security-aware and protected industry across the board.”
Akamai is exhibiting at the 2018 NAB Show April 9th through April 12th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, where its media and security experts will share best practices and strategies for protecting online properties. Akamai’s Dave Lewis is also presenting on “Data Breaches: Barbarians in the Throne Room,” as part of the NAB Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference on Saturday, April 7th.
