What will we cover
APIs are everywhere and now a critical part of any modern SaaS and web application. API security has become a critical priority because the nature of publicly available APIs give outsiders direct access to your application logic and data for potential abuse. In fact, Gartner predicts “by 2022, API abuses will move from infrequent to the most frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.” Recent API attacks on Peloton, LinkedIn, and Clubhouse are good examples of the risk of vulnerable APIs in the real world.
In this webinar, our expert panel will discuss why continuous API security testing is critical to securing your applications and reducing risk of API hacking in the wild. We will provide best practice guidance to improve your API security posture through automated detection for vulnerabilities lurking in API endpoints, ensuring your application business is protected against abuse.
