Indusface, a leading application security SaaS firm that continuously detects security threats, offers real protection, and enhances the performance of Websites and Applications, recently announced that its WAAP platform, AppTrana, will now include Risk-Based API Protection.
APIs are the lifeblood of the digital economy, and many businesses are embracing an API-first strategy. However, the proliferation of APIs is exposing them to new danger vectors they are unaware of. According to Gartner, API abuse exposes more attack surfaces than UI in more than 90% of systems, and API abuse will become the most common attack vector by 2022, resulting in data breaches for enterprise online apps.
Indusface’s Founder and CEO, Ashish Tandon, commented that AppTrana’s risk-based strategy is unique, and it’s something that the customers like. Consumers truly want to know how well their application is secured, depending on its risk posture. They are now extending their API Protection capabilities by offering a risk-based approach to API security, which they believe will change the market. Customers will be able to rapidly connect how vulnerabilities discovered in their public APIs are secured through API-specific policies and positive security policies enforced in AppTrana, delivering the most comprehensive API protection.
You can only protect what you know, as with any security, and protection is only as powerful as the weakest link. The capacity to comprehend the context of APIs so that security may be modified accordingly is one of the primary issues with APIs. Indusface is strengthening its API protection in AppTrana to meet these challenges. Customers may identify APIs, analyze risk posture, and assure comprehensive API protection using a multi-step strategy.
With Indusface AppTrana’s Risk-based API Protection, users may understand the APIs’ risk posture through an unlimited number of automatic API scans and manual checks for discovering business logic weaknesses. This allows organizations to identify the APIs’ weakest links and gain visibility into how these links are safeguarded. By studying API traffic patterns, behavioral-based security against DDoS assaults on APIs is possible. Protection against BOT attacks based on behavior. Positive API security is achieved by analyzing swagger (OpenAPI 2.0) files and automating the generation of positive security policies. A precise, real-time view of the vulnerabilities that have been stopped by API-specific rules, positive security policies, custom rules, and those that require application fixes.
