API Abuse Prevention
Do You Need API Abuse Prevention?
You need to protect your public-facing APIs against modern API-specific threats, such as those covered in OWASP API1:2023 (BOLA) and API9:2023 (Improper Inventory Management), which look familiar but behave differently. Examples include:
Case Study: Accellion FTA attack via CVE-2021-27103 (among others) in late-2020.
Case Study: Route 53 DNS web service on AWS in late-2020.
Case Study: Scraping of the personal data of over 533 million Facebook users in mid-2021.
Guard Against API Abuse
APIs are designed to be open, so protecting them from abuse is a subtle balance involving access vs. protection. We allow you to assemble detectors and thresholds to tailor protections appropriate for your API estate.
API Abuse Prevention at a Glance
Group and display indicators of automated behavior based on several factors, such as request pattern, timing anomalies, and API endpoint behavior, to provide visibility into potential harmful actions.
