Akamai’s 1Q 2016 State of the Internet and Security

When a cyber attack makes the headlines it serves as a reminder of the growing threat we face as part of our increasingly Connected Society. Even without flashy headlines, ongoing increases in the number of cyber attacks confirm its place as a growth industry.  

Akamai Technologies released its Q1 2016 State of the Internet – Security Report, which takes an in-depth look into the global cloud security threat landscape to provide analysis and insight into malicious activity that’s been observed across the Akamai Intelligent Platform™ from January to March of this year.“We have continued to witness significant growth in the number and frequency of DDoS and web application attacks launched against online assets, and Q1 2016 was no exception,” explained Stuart Scholly, SVP and GM of Akamai’s Security Business Unit.
