API Security Trends:

Retail/eCommerce Sector


Noname Security collaborated with Opinion Matters to conduct research on API Security Trends in 2022. In this survey, 600 senior cybersecurity professionals were surveyed to better understand the challenges and trends facing UK and USA businesses when it comes to their API security posture. 

API security is challenging for retailers and eCommerce sites because they need to open their business to the world and integrate with third parties. With growing volumes of API traffic, many security tools lack context and find it hard to differentiate between what is good and what is malicious.
