API Security Challenges
Top API vulnerabilities come from business-logic, role-configuration, and compliance flaws making web security, pen-testing, and WAF approaches obsolete against top API exploits.
Rising Application Security Costs
Conventional application security testing approaches are inefficient and ineffective, requiring a considerable investment in experts performing manual tasks. These approaches become so expensive that only the highest priority apps are ever tested for security flaws.
Manual Compliance Delaying Application Releases
Many enterprises rely on periodic application security audits to comply with common standards like PCI 6.5 and OWASP. Unfortunately, these audits are often performed very late in the development cycle, adding to enormous project delays and costs associated with Fix-Test-Redeploy activities.
75% of Attacks Target the API Layer
Security vulnerabilities stemming from the REST API layer continue to go undetected in most application security tools. Enterprises often struggle to prevent API-specific vulnerabilities like data breaches as a result of improper implementation of RBAC roles or ABAC roles that control access to resources. The lack of comprehensive and integrated API security management can often lead to data loss attacks that can shut down application services.
CCPA & GDPR Privacy Laws & Fines
The new introduced CCPA and GDPR Privacy laws will now require organizations to report accidental data exposure and breaches, and pay business-breaking fines. Most early-stage startups don’t have the emergency fund to cover these fines, and they end up winding down. The large organizations that delay API Security will end up paying per record exposure and risking brand damage.
