451 Research report sponsored by Noname Security analyzes practitioner challenges and expectations regarding API Security
San Jose, CA — April 19, 2022 — In the wake of the digital transformation wave, web application program interfaces (APIs) have experienced exponential growth as the rise of integrated web and mobile-based offerings requires significantly more data sharing across products. As dependency on APIs increases, so do its related security challenges like broken authentication, authorization, and accidental disclosure or breach of data. With concerns continuing to mount, 451 Research has released the 2022 API Security Trends Report sponsored by API security company, Noname Security, covering the key characteristics and security risks present in API usage today and how a holistic approach to API security provides a gateway to a frictionless user experience.
Conducted in January 2022 and featuring results from IT experts representing over 350 global companies in diverse industries with 3,000+ full-time employees, the 2022 API Security Trends Report captures the main pain points associated with API security today, the effectiveness of other enterprise-grade security solutions, and characteristics of effective API security solutions such as maintaining accurate API inventories and requiring user authentication.
Key findings from the report include the following:
“With API usage continuing to grow, this extreme level of use and dependency has enabled many vulnerabilities to rise to the surface, making securing these APIs across sectors more paramount than ever,” said Daniel Kennedy, Principal Research Analyst for Information Security for the Voice of the Enterprise (VotE) quantitative research product at 451 Research. “This report should help enterprises of all sizes across various sectors make the informed decisions they need when developing their API security strategy.”
