Remote Workforce Security For The Future

Exclusive Security Briefing Series by Akamai

Outline

IT teams and employees had to adapt to new ways of business overnight since the start of C-19. The demand to shift to remote working models and protecting applications and employees outside of the network perimeter came at warp speed. Today it’s fundamentally changed how IT decision-makers look at work – it’s no longer Remote Work, ‘Working from home’ – it’s just Working! 
Even before the pandemic, employees expected the highest level of security and seamless access to corporate applications. With this shift, organizations and IT professionals need to prioritize their security investments to enable and secure the future of work (whatever form it takes in the years to come). The time to implement the acceleration to the cloud and robust security models like Zero trust is now!
Akamai’s Threat Research team has put together a 4-part Security Briefing series based on our experience in securing workforce internet and internal application access for our customers, and insights from handling large-scale (fast) deployments over the past 18-months of the pandemic. 
This series brings an unbiased perspective into the most basic (often overlooked) layer of  infrastructure protection for DNS services, the latest advanced Phishing methods being deployed against employees, insights into some of the recent Ransomware attacks that made headlines, latest workflows for securing Internal (Private) Applications and Network Access and a peek into how Akamai’s Threat Intelligence Services are tuned to provide Security Operations teams accurate, real time domain intelligence to drive risk decisions about activity in their network.

Before They Press “Start” – Nov 10th, 5:00 to 6:00 PM IST 

There’s a sense of excitement and anxiety as a game loads on your screen. What’s my first move? What’s my move after that? How do I get a better result than the previous attempt? How do I improve my score? 

All this before the game starts! The experience starts before the game starts. To architect a winning game whether on a mobile or PC, performance is key to ensure your gamers have the fastest and seamless time-to-play. 

In the last decade, game development has shifted tremendously. Traditionally, games were developed and released as a stand-alone game for gamers to play by themselves. Now, the majority of the games are hyper connected with a global audience of millions playing at the same time. Add in features such as microtransactions for monetization as well as high prize pools for esports competitions and you have a recipe for disaster when launching and maintaining your game. 

In this session, Jonathan Singer, Senior Industry Manager at Akamai will take you on a journey across the modern video game and how a solid foundation of gaming infrastructure can make or break your game, hosted by Nikhil Malankar, CEO GameEon Studios. 

Improve The Player Experience with a Responsive UI – Nov 24th, 5:00 to 6:00 PM IST

APIs have quickly emerged as a standard way of building and connecting modern applications and are essential for integrating, enabling and driving digital experiences. Modern architectures benefit orgs in a number of ways from increased developer efficiency, connectivity, improved user experience, and faster pace of innovation.

But APIs have unique challenges in the areas of Security, Performance and Reliability. Recent research has shown:

  • How to measure web page performance (are we really talking about “web pages” here? As in the site that you download from? Or are you considering key services within the application “web pages?” If so, I think we need to change the terminology. If the first important thing we say we’re talking about in this list is “web pages” we’re going to lose our audience)
  • Industry-standard metrics for user experience
  • The relationship between performance and load-balancing
  • Architectural best practices  

Join Akamai’s Pavel Despot, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Ritika Tandon Senior Solutions Engineer and Jonathan Singer, Senior Industry Marketing Manager for a perspective of the mobile games industry and how Gaming organizations can navigate this maze of architecture to win on performance and security!
