Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2022

Discover what Gartner has to say about API threat protection and their recommendations on getting prepared.

As per Gartner, "every connected mobile, modern web or cloud-hosted application uses and exposes APIs. APIs are easy to expose, but difficult to defend. This creates a large and growing attack surface, leading to a growing number of publicized API attacks and breaches. Traditional network and web protection tools do not protect against all the security threats facing APIs."

In this report, you'll learn:

  • Why API threat protection is a growing concern among CISOs and CIOs across several industries.
  • The business impact API breaches are having on organizations of all sizes.
  • How organizations are responding to the threats identified in the OWASP Top 10 API Security Threats.
  • Gartner recommendations for addressing the lack of API visibility and emerging vulnerabilities.
