BOSTON – May 25, 2022 – ThreatX, the leading API protection platform, today announced the publication of “The Definitive Guide™ to API Attack Protection.” Published by CyberEdge Press, with a foreword by ThreatX co-founder Bret Settle, this guide provides foundational-level information that will serve as a valuable starting point for organizations looking to understand and mitigate ever-evolving API security concerns.
API security is not a new problem, as APIs, and their associated vulnerabilities, have been around for a long time. But API growth has exploded in recent years, and security is struggling to keep up. APIs are now often featured in breach headlines and are becoming top of mind for security professionals. The publication of “The Definitive Guide to API Attack Protection” provides organizations an opportunity to benefit from ThreatX’s real-world experience and technical expertise with an easy-to-understand and practical guidebook.
While the guide exposes the problems associated with unsecured APIs, it also details important information related to the sophisticated nature of modern API attacks. Additionally, the guide provides valuable advice on how to protect your organization’s APIs and find a solution that works best to solve these issues for good. Ultimately, it gives security professionals one resource for help understanding how APIs work, why they are vulnerable, how they are being attacked, and how to secure them.
“APIs, as a prominent attack vector, must be top of mind for security professionals,” says Gene Fay, CEO of ThreatX. “Based on the conversations we have with customers everyday about their challenges with API security, I know the ‘Definitive Guide to API Attack Protection’ will serve as a valuable resource.”
“The rapid growth of APIs has created new security challenges for organizations as they push for digital transformations,” says Bret Settle, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at ThreatX. “And this growth will only increase as businesses take advantage of APIs’ ease of integration and advanced automation. At the end of the day, it’s all about time to market, and APIs enable DevOps teams to deliver new services and capabilities more quickly. ‘The Definitive Guide to API Attack Protection’ understands this reality while offering practical information on the importance of mitigating the multitude of threats APIs face.”
In just six chapters, the guide dives deep into the current state of API security and the risks they pose in order to bring awareness to a growing problem, as well as the importance of proactive API security. Sophisticated attacks require sophisticated solutions, and that’s what this guide offers.
