API Security Solution Evaluation Guide


Published May 2024


APIs operate in complex ecosystems comprised of various architectures, components, types, and protocols. On average, organizations use over 20,000 APIs. That makes securing hybrid and multi-cloud environments very challenging. And there’s evidence that what organizations are doing now just isn’t enough—compromised APIs have led to over a billion stolen records.

API risk management requires a comprehensive approach, including employing an API security model and deploying unified security controls across data center, multi-cloud, and edge architectures to secure every app and leave no API behind.

Read this evaluation guide to learn about:

  • The challenges of securing APIs
    Expanding API ecosystems increase risk and complexity
  • Why a holistic approach to protecting APIs is required
    A balanced API security model includes six core components
  • The importance of integrated security solutions
    Visibility, discovery, and automated protection are critical
