Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

APIs are ubiquitous. Every modern software application uses–or is–an API. Every digital business relies on APIs to generate revenue. Every DevOps team innovates on the backs of APIs. It’s no wonder then that Gartner predicts “by 2022, API abuses will be the most frequent attack vector resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.”

Even with this explosive growth, APIs are consistently overlooked in web application security programs. And attackers are taking advantage of it by increasingly targeting web APIs to gain a foothold, deny access, install bots, escalate privilege and harvest sensitive data. In this webcast, Techstrong Chief Content Officer Mike Vizard and ThreatX co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer Bret Settle will discuss the varied types of attack methods used against APIs and introduce an attacked-centric approach to API and web application security that provides full visibility into API and web application traffic to identify and block bad behaviors to protect exposed vulnerabilities before damage can be done. You’ll learn how to:

  • Identify and correlate activity to block tangible threats
  • Respond to attack patterns over time and adjust to adversary motions
  • Block suspicious entities when behaviors exceed acceptable risk thresholds
  • Dramatically reduce false positives without impacting user experience
