“The threat environment we’re seeing today is radically different from what existed just six months ago. Six months from now, I expect to say the same thing. The actors behind the threats are evolving; the |motivation behind attacks is more difficult to predict and anticipate. So what we stress with our customers is that it’s not enough to have a security strategy in place today; it’s about deploying a long-term security solution that has the flexibility and scalability to adapt to this ever-evolving threat environment.” – Andy Ellis, Akamai Chief Security Officer
