APIs have become increasingly popular as they are used to connect different systems, services and applications. But this makes them an attractive target for cybercriminals who want to exploits flaws and access sensitive data. Here are five critical reasons you need to conduct API security testing.
Large enterprises may have hundreds or thousands of APIs. Concerns over API vulnerabilities have been around for years, but most organizations outside of highly regulated industries such as banking have not taken the steps to understand the threats they face, said Richard Bird, CSO at Traceable.
To develop robust OT cyber security roadmaps and foundations, organizations with OT systems (everything from manufacturing process controls to building control systems to security access systems) should embrace the concept of OTSM (OT Systems Management), paralleling their ITSM practices, but within the unique...
Real-time protection against API attacks is nonnegotiable for the protection of any web application or digital service that relies on application programming interfaces. Here are some of the most common types of API attacks and strategies for protecting against them in real time.
Shadow APIs are up 900%, and API business logic abuse attacks have come to the forefront and are demanding both discovery and defensive measures from cybersecurity organizations, said James Sherlow, director of solution engineering in EMEA at Cequence Security.
The rapid pace of API development has created major risk for companies given the amount of data that's being exposed, said Salt Security CEO Roey Eliyahu. The security industry hasn't adapted quickly to address these problems since it's still used to relatively static APIs that were easy to guard.
U.S. and Australian cybersecurity agencies are warning developers to guard against access flaws, saying that failure to institute authentication checks can lead to large data breaches. Broken access controls are on OWASP's 2021 list of the top 10 most critical security risks.
Attackers are increasingly using carefully crafted business logic exploits in which attackers effectively social engineer an API to do something it wasn’t intended to do, according to Stephanie Best, director of product marketing for API security at Salt Security.
Thales has agreed to purchase Imperva for $3.6 billion to enter the application and API security market and expand its footprint in data security. The deal will add a robust web application firewall along with capabilities in API protection and data discovery and classification to Thales' portfolio.
Organizations went from having little information about their security posture to drowning in so many alerts that no human could possibly understand it all. Broadcom has focused on artificial intelligence for IT operations to help companies identity and remediate the root cause of security alerts.
Graylog bought an API security startup founded by a former Dell and Intel software engineer to give its customers broader and more complete threat detection. Resurface.io will allow companies to conduct threat hunting across the full set of API request response data rather than rely on metadata.
Enterprise software firm JumpCloud says a sophisticated nation-state threat actor is behind a security incident that targeted a small and specific set of customers last week. JumpCloud reset all of its API keys, potentially affecting thousands of customers including Cars.com and GoFundMe.
API security platforms have become an essential part of any organization's cybersecurity strategy, but with so many options available, it can be difficult to know how to choose the right one. In this article, we'll discuss how to evaluate API security platforms and what factors to consider.
Application security testing, or AST, and API security testing are important components of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. We'll discuss the application and API security best practices for each type of testing, the use cases, and how they protect your business from cyberattacks.
