Chasing Shadows: Securing APIs in a Digital Economy

APIs have become a lucrative target for attackers and can be the vector for theft of sensitive information.
/

Boston, March 31, 2020 Although APIs offer the means to rapidly roll out new business models, create pleasant customer experiences, and support workforce productivity, they have become a frequent and growing target for attackers. API security is still relatively misunderstood by most security and digital transformation professionals who attempt to use less-than-effective traditional network and application security methods that are not suited to today’s growing API economy. Lack of API visibility equates to chasing shadows rather than managing risk associated with API use. This Impact Brief provides information on how APIs are being exploited, methods to protect API abuse, and an example of how one financial services organization enhanced API security via increased visibility.
