The changing threat landscape and recent uptick in attacks are constantly driving organizations to search for solutions to tackle these problems. According to John Summers, vice president of security business at Akamai Technologies, the real market driver is DDoS attacks, which he believes are largely hacktivist driven. According to Summer, the key is to have something outside of data centers to mitigate those attacks.

In this video shot at RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco, Eric Green, program director at SC Magazine, chats with Summers about prevalent threats today and the possible solutions enterprises can utilize.
