Prioritize API Security, Inside and Out
Deep Visibility into API Activity
API management tools provide an important set of security features to protect your APIs. These often include authentication and rate limiting, which ensure resources are securely accessible by internal groups, partners, customers and third-party developers. But these practices are often deficient in stopping attacks that circumvent traditional security practices and are built specifically to breach APIs to gain access to sensitive data. Intelligence helps detect and stop the most common API threats not covered by foundational API security tools.

Detecting the most recent API breaches has taken months or years because hackers were able to hide by creating activity that appeared to come from a valid account. Some of these breaches were executed by hackers using a valid account to reverse engineer an API with the intent to find vulnerabilities to gain access to the systems and data connected to the API. Once a vulnerability was found, a hacker could abuse access to the API and misuse the data behind it. You need a solution that can quickly discover and block valid accounts exhibiting abnormal behavior, which shortens the time these costly breaches go undetected.
