Laurent Jacquemin, Filed CTO, Akamai Technologies, UAE and France, said that more recently, Akamai has started providing micro-segmentation solutions to its customers to prevent ransomware attacks. One of the critical CISO pain points is to protect against ransomware. A CISO wants to protect his/her critical assets. One of the ways to do this is to use Akamai’s micro segmentation solutions and getting a good understanding of what’s going on within the organisations.
