Mind the Gap in API Protection


SPEAKER: Bret Settle


APIs are the great connectors. API communications now make up more than 80% of Internet traffic and Gartner predicts that they will become the most frequent attack vector this year. Yet APIs are often overlooked in web application security programs. It’s not surprising that attackers are taking advantage of this gap and increasingly targeting web APIs to gain a foothold, deny access, install bots, escalate privilege, and find sensitive data. In this discussion, ThreatX co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Bret Settle will detail the types of attack methods used against APIs and introduce an integrative approach to API and web application security that provides full visibility into all traffic to effectively identify bad behaviors and vulnerabilities.
