Conventional application security testing approaches are inefficient and ineffective, requiring a huge investment in experts performing manual tasks. These approaches become so expensive that only the highest priority apps are ever tested for security flaws.
With 75% of attacks targeting the API layer, security vulnerabilities stemming from the REST API layer continue to go undetected in most application security tools. Enterprises often struggle to prevent API-specific vulnerabilities like data breaches as a result of improper implementation of RBAC roles or ABAC rules that control access to resources. The lack of comprehensive and integrated API security management can often lead to data loss attacks that can shut down application services.
