APIs play a huge role in establishing your business as a digital-first enterprise.

Business models are going through a sea change and enterprises are pivoting to a digital-first enterprise in response to market dynamics. As a result, according to Akamai, 83 percent of all web traffic is now API traffic. This growth of APIs is resulting in the corresponding change in the attack surface and threat model. Sample this, Mobile applications, rich web applications (single page applications), IoT devices, cloud-based applications — all rely on APIs to power them.

Is API Security on your radar?

Gartner estimates that by 2021, exposed APIs will form a larger attack surface than UIs for 90 percent of web-enabled applications. APIs security challenges the classical paradigm of "professional team-based security", which entails that defense systems are maintained constantly by security personnel on a daily basis. Due to budget restraints and complexity issues, establishing and maintaining an effective API defense layer has become too expensive for most organizations, especially since relying on Web Application FW (WAFs) has shown to be inefficient for protecting applications and APIs against the latest cyberattacks. Therefore, a new type of security solution is needed to protect APIs.
