The latest research paper by Cequence Security details the top API threats detected during the first half of 2022. The report is based on analysis of more than 20 billion API transactions and reveals organisations are being plagued by shadow APIs, API abuse and Account Takeover (ATO) etc. It provides some real insights into the scale of these problems, their costs and repercussions.
One of the challenges facing businesses in protecting their APIs is putting in place future proof threat detection. Jason Kent, Hacker in Residence at Cequence Security, looks at the importance of detection, best practice, and its part in a unified API protection strategy.
