API Security Landscape: Protecting APIs from Automated Attacks and Abuse

  • Single HTTP request
  • An increase in the rate of errors
  • Extremely high application usage from a single IP address or API token
  • A high ratio of GET/POST to HEAD request for a user/ session/ IP address/ API token compared to legitimate users
  • Addressing gaps in unique source identification in M2M communications through our API-Client SDK
  • Preventing out of context API invocation (for Web and mobile APIs)
  • Establishing authentication flows to validate legitimate access to assets
  • Detecting anomalous navigation flows or access patterns
