Protect your APIs from attacks and data abuse
The use of APIs as public web services is constantly increasing, and thus the threats are also increasing. API security requires implementing strategies and procedures that can help mitigate API security threats.
According to Gartner, by 2022 API abuse will become the dominant attack vector for enterprise data exfiltration and theft. In addition, by 2023, more than 50% of B2B transactions will take place via real-time APIs, compared to traditional routes.
Hackers use tools and have sophisticated methods to break into developer-level APIs. They can exploit subtle errors to map the API, understand its structure, and find vulnerabilities in the code itself.
WAAP - A solution to protect your APIs
WAAP (Web Application and API Protection) is an important security tool because traditional security tools like firewalls and gateways can't always provide the defense you need to prevent API attacks. WAAP ensures that APIs are protected and do not lead to security exposures. WAAP includes:
Next generation web application firewall (WAF),
