The Growing Need for API Protection
Gartner predicts that by 2022, API abuses will be the most-frequent attack vector resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.* APIs allow millions of connected devices to talk to backend servers, access data and communicate with partners, customers and employees. Weak API security can result in painful, damaging consequences such as hacker attacks and data breaches. Utilizing Verimatrix’s suite of software shielding solutions can protect your APIs from increasingly sophisticated attacks.
Verimatrix API Security Empowers You to Repel a Wide Range of API Attacks, Including:
API Security Protects Your Entire Connected Ecosystem
Safeguard Sensitive User Data
When APIs are left exposed and a data breach occurs, these attacks feel more personal to end users than they would if the event originated elsewhere. When users’ applications are targeted and accessed by cybercriminals, the vulnerability reaches their own device as well as your network. API security safeguards customer trust and protects your business.
Keep Hackers Out of Backend Servers
Weak API security provides an entry point for hackers to reach the heartbeat of your business – your backend servers. These servers store your valuable business secrets, which could cause major damage if they got into the wrong hands. It is critical to build strong API security to safeguard your intellectual property, revenue and reputation.
Address a Growing Vulnerability
Traditionally, hackers have used phishing attacks to target weaknesses in network servers. However, as technology evolves and the traditional security perimeter shifts outward toward client devices, weak APIs are exploited at rapid rates. Verimatrix Application Shielding solutions inject powerful security into your apps to help prevent API attacks.
