Many early adopters have chosen to tackle the API security problem with traffic analysis tools that use AI/ML to discover known and unknown APIs and identify suspected attacks. Yet these companies are now telling us they’re inundated with false positives, and feel no closer to addressing the core issue of having vulnerable APIs.
42Crunch’s Colin Domoney takes a look at the new OWASP API Security 2023 listing, identifying which vulnerabilities are new, which have not changed and which have been removed.

This webinar presents the new integration of 42Crunch with comprehensive mobile app protection from Approov. A joint solution that delivers shift-left API protection as well as run-time shielding that extends all the way to your mobile apps and the environments they run in.
Why Developer-First API Security is Prevailing in Enterprise. The DevSecOps movement has led to a distinct “shift-left” in the enterprise where tasks are moved earlier in the development cycle so that developers can directly address production concerns as the code is being written. Companies are realizing greater business benefits from this shift-left approach, with accelerated […]
Tus APIs están en riesgo, punto! Muchas organizaciones tienen la epifanía de que tener los componentes tradicionales como WAF y las capacidades tradicionales de los API Gateways son suficientes para que estén protegidas, pero no lo están.

Why do we need different solutions for API Threat protection? APIs are becoming a hot target for hackers. Analysts and cyber security specialists agree that the privileged position of APIs as the open doors to the enterprise kingdom make them a favorite to breach. For the past 20 years, Web Application Firewalls (WAFs ) have […]
To consider and apply API security effectively, we need to understand where we are and where we need to go. We need to know the tools we have available and who our allies are. Finally, we need a clear path and priorities on what we can accomplish and how. In this webinar, we’ll lay out a reference architecture to ensure we understand the scope, challenges, and approach to secure your APIs and organization as a whole.
According to the State of the APIs report released by Smartbear in 2019, 80% of developers use OpenAPI to describe their APIs (you may still call it Swagger, but you really should call it OpenAPI now!)
When talking to prospects or presenting our solution at conferences, we inevitably get asked the same question: what’s the difference between your solution and a Web Application Firewall (WAF)? The core difference is that we know what we are protecting, WAFs don’t. WAFs were built to protect web applications and there is no standard way […]
This tutorial illustrates how to fix issues found in the API security audit and shows you how to iteratively update your OpenAPI definition.

Security is an important topic in software development. Unfortunately, security is usually considered too late in software development, and especially in the API lifecycle. Waiting until software and APIs are in production before addressing security concerns can be a severe risk to your organization. Did you know that vulnerabilities found in production cost up to 30x time and money more to fix?
In loosely coupled architectures, we must put in place application level security, should it be for client traffic (North-South) or intra-microservices traffic (East-West).
Every day, new breaches show us that we still have a long way to go with API security. In order to protect APIs, enterprises need to take a holistic approach, which includes the following: Securing the infrastructure: OS configuration, network configuration as well as containers. Properly configuring application servers: enforce TLS 1.2/1.3, remove weak cipher […]

APIs are the access doors to your enterprise assets and the backbone of pretty much any application that has been written in recent years. While most companies apply token-based access to APIs with OpenIDConnect and OAuth, there are still many aspects of security which are not properly covered for APIs such as common injection attacks, […]
Without any doubt, APIs have redefined the enterprise architecture landscape by becoming the building blocks of internal and external enterprise applications. APIs are now the entry point into most architectures, much like servlets and JSPs were in the application server era. APIs give access to a wide range of applications, systems, databases and now things with […]
