Retailers face dynamic and complex attack surfaces — both physical and digital — requiring defenses that prevent attackers from moving laterally across networks as they seek to locate, exfiltrate, then encrypt and block access to sensitive data.

And the stakes are high. Retail is the #1 most targeted vertical, intent on gaining access to critical customer and company data. Combined with escalating geopolitical tensions and the resurgence of destructive malware strains engineered to destroy physical assets, organizations must quickly detect and stop the spread of malware to contain the blast zone of an initial infection.

As noted by Forrester, micro-segmentation is an essential cornerstone of implementing a zero-trust strategy, enabling granular protection and deep visibility into east/west dataflows via software-defined policies to stop lateral movement of threat actors. Join Akamai in a Q&A-style discussion to learn more about how micro-segmentation can help retailers drastically reduce attack surfaces and risk of a business-disrupting intrusion or breach, ultimately keeping data safe – and out of the hands of cyber criminals.
