On May 26, Akamai launched our Page Integrity Manager, extending our solutions for securing and delivering digital experiences. During beta, we monitored more than one trillion real-user interactions to understand script composition and behavior. Above all, one thing stood out: Scripts loaded in real users’ browsers constitute a huge and continuously evolving attack surface, posing significant challenges to static approaches to these threats.
Modern web front ends are complex, highly dynamic, personalized, and targeted. The conditional nature of the user experience means there are a myriad of not just experiences, but also resources, presented to real users. Compounding these challenges, we observed more than 75% of the scripts loaded by real users came from third-party sources.
Third-party scripts are essential to today’s user experiences and digital business operations. They are widely distributed and therefore are highly targeted by criminals seeking maximum reach.
The answer is something that can run in real time, examining behavior and determining trust with every real-user interaction. A solution is needed that delivers notifications instantly upon detection of an issue, with actionable details explaining the source and destination of the threat, the number of users impacted, and recommendations on how to rapidly mitigate such incidents.
That’s what we introduced — a solution that offers robust visibility into compromised scripts and client-side threats, and the actionable information needed to make informed decisions about the detected risks.
