Protect Your Cloud-Native and Legacy Applications

APIs are transforming the financial sector, reducing IT complexity, enabling agility & partners, and driving innovation.

API Security Challenges for the Financial Sector

Why You Need API Security

Protecting APIs and web applications is crucial for the financial sector, from the traditional organizations (e.g., banks, investment firms and insurance brokers) to the digital natives (e.g., neobanks and fintechs).

Growing Attack Surface

According to McKinsey1, banks plan to rapidly increase use of APIs – including internal APIs (73% of total by 2025, up 2x from 2020), partner APIs (19% of total, up 2x from 2020) and public APIs (8% of total, up 3x from 2020) – which will have a significant impact on their cybersecurity posture. While APIs can enhance operational efficiency and provide new revenue streams, they can also introduce new security risks.

Regulatory Compliance

Complying with various industry standards and regulatory requirements has a significant impact on API security needs in the financial sector. These standards and regulations – which include data privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA, and financial regulatory requirements from the SEC, NY DFS, FFIEC, Open Banking, PSD2, etc. – typically have specific requirements related to data protection, incident response, access controls, and other security practices.

PCI Standards

Most PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) requirements impact the use of APIs in the financial sector, from maintaining a secure network and a vulnerability management program to implementing strong access control measures and regularly monitoring / testing networks. In addition, PCI has transitioned away from PA-DSS to the PCI Software Security Framework (SSF), which will evaluate APIs against the Secure Software Lifecycle (Secure SLC) and Secure Software Standards, including the new Security Requirements Module for Web Software.
