The API attack surface grows larger and more complex every day – leaving organizations uncertain of how to navigate this unfamiliar and dangerous territory. Such confusion leaves businesses vulnerable to botnet attacks against APIs that could result in a denial-of-service scenario or user account takeover.
The first step toward fixing this problem is for organizations to gain a better understanding of what constitutes API security, why it differs from traditional web application security, and how lack of API visibility remains a key challenge.
This democast, showcasing ThreatX’s API protection platform, will give viewers a much clearer picture of the state of API security, while explaining the benefits of implementing a solution specifically designed to comprehensively tackle the inherent challenges of API security. Attendees will see first-hand how ThreatX’s features – including instant API discovery and profiling; automated threat detection and protection; and logic-aware behavior analysis – can stop complex API attacks in their tracks before the damage is done.
