GigaOm Radar for API Security

The importance of API security is growing daily due to the extreme pace of API adoption. Enterprises everywhere are moving workloads to the cloud, transforming applications to cloud native and relying on distributed applications. The result is a proliferation of APIs that expose business logic and potentially sensitive data, making the need for API-centric security a top priority.

Traditional security tools, such as WAF, CDN, Layer 4 firewalls, and SAST simply do not cover API-specific threat vectors. Furthermore they do not evaluate API usage for conformance to API specifications. In many ways, this is driving enterprises to seek purpose-built API security solutions to augment their runtime and their development security.
