Recent research indicates hat over 80% of activity on the internet evolves around API calls, highlighting their significance. APIs are involved in around two-thirds of today's cybersecurity incidents. Making API security essential when it comes to protecting your business and your customers.
Network layer security, such as a firewall or SSL, does not offer sufficient protection against many of the common API threats, such as authentication and authorization breaches. Many of the API incidents that occur, occur at an application layer.
FireTail’s Findings feature enables the detection of OWASP's 2019 top 10 API security issues. The OWASP API Security Top 10 is a comprehensive document detailing the ten most critical security risks facing APIs. A finding is generated on FireTail's SaaS platform when an issue aligning with the OWASP top 10 is detected. This enables you to pinpoint a potential threat and apply remediation techniques to prevent an API breach.
