Radware's new 2020-2021 State of Web Application Security Report revealed that global organizations are struggling to maintain consistent application security across multiple platforms, and they are also losing visibility with the emergence of new architectures and the adoption of Application Program Interfaces (APIs).
Today's complex computing environments are rife with vulnerabilities. Keeping your organizational data safe requires employing today's best data security practice: adopting the premise that identity and access management provide the new and true security perimeter. Powerful identity and access management (IAM) models of public cloud providers enable the deployment of applications and data with far greater protection than what is possible in traditional cloud security. However, these cloud provider IAM solutions are not without risk when misused.
Stories about cyberattacks and security breaches are popping up more and more frequently in the news and it seems as though no company is immune to the sophisticated strategies hackers use to obtain high value confidential data. These data hacks result in bad PR, lost customer trust, possible fines, and potentially ruined reputations. Needless to say, it should have you questioning whether or not your data is properly protected, and the answer is — it’s probably not.
Application programming interfaces (APIs) make everything a bit easier - from data sharing to system connectivity to delivery of critical features and functionality - but they also make it much easier for the bad actors (and the bad bots they deploy). Here are the top 5 API vulnerabilities that get exploited by hackers, including some tips to help close those gaps.
