Piecemeal Approaches to API Security put Organizations in the Crosshairs

Discussion Topics

Many security teams struggle to achieve the visibility and maturity needed to minimize risks and protect against sophisticated attacks such as bots and distributed denial of service (DDoS), according to a new report from CRA Business Intelligence, the research arm of cybersecurity information services company CyberRisk Alliance. The survey was underwritten by ThreatX, provider of a platform that protects APIs from all threats, including DDoS attempts, bot attacks, API abuse, exploitations of known vulnerabilities, and zero-day attacks. 

Although many organizations have various API standalone protection tools in place, many study respondents often regarded these solutions as ineffective and incomplete, particularly when tracking undocumented (rogue or shadow) APIs and expired (zombie) APIs.
