APIs Are the Now the Universal Attack Vector
To effectively counter modern API-based attacks, it’s crucial to possess a deep, intelligent understanding of your APIs’ complete behavior, their intended usage (context), and the data they handle. Establishing a baseline for API expectations over time is equally vital.
What’s needed is a holistic platform approach that encompasses every facet of API security – from automated governance to proactive threat management. This ensures organizations not only minimize risks but also harness the full potential of APIs for their customers.
Without such a comprehensive approach, vulnerabilities at the API layer become the organization’s Achilles’ heel.
