How to Maximize API Security Through Simplicity

APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are the key part of digital transformation strategies, and securing those APIs is a top challenge. APIs are a rapidly growing attack surface that isn’t widely understood and can be overlooked by developers and application security experts.

API Security focuses on strategies to mitigate the unique security risks of APIs. Traditional these vulnerabilities are less common in API-Based apps:

  • SQLi – Increasing use of ORMs
  • CSRF – Authorization headers instead of cookies
  • Path Manipulations – Cloud-Based storage
  • Classic IT Security Issues – SaaS

API security is important because businesses use APIs to connect services and to transfer data, hacked API may lead to a data breach. API abuse issues have roughly doubled over the past 4 years.

In the past 12 months, 55% of companies said they found vulnerabilities in their APIs, 19% had sensitive data exposed, 39% found authentication problems, 23% suffered denial-of-service attacks, 16% saw brute-force attacks or credential stuffing, and 12% saw scraping. Only 6% of companies had no API-related problems.
