Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand. The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like: Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet; Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base; Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget. Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats. This whitepaper describes: • Challenges that Magic Video faced before implementing Alibaba Cloud’s solutions • How Alibaba Cloud’s solutions help Magic Video build a global hybrid enterprise network, accelerate content delivery of the application, and maximize bandwidth?

When most people think of denial of service (DoS) attacks, they think of the large pipe-saturating distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks aimed at the network layer. However, attacks on website or application availability are not just volumetric in nature. Many attacks are designed to cause resource exhaustion somewhere in the application stack, the application servers, middleware, or back-end database.

Effective security for cloud-hosted web applications requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live and the potential exposure to vulnerabilities — and to do so consistently, while proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery. Cloud adoption means that a focus on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability.

Effective security for cloud-hosted web applications requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live and the potential exposure to vulnerabilities — and to do so consistently, while proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery. Cloud adoption means that a focus on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability. Similarly, relying on your cloud service provider’s security services is insufficient; any provider will tell you that securing the cloud environment is a shared responsibility between cloud service provider and customer, and the responsibility for specifically securing web applications is the sole responsibility of the customer. And although the industry as a whole has become better at protecting lower-level network and server resources, as attackers look for targets, they are moving up the application stack.

Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems. This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.
