Definitive Guide to API Discovery
Shadow and rogue APIs operating freely are putting…
API gateways provide some visibility into security issues, since they serve as a central point for traffic and policy enforcement. However, not all API calls go through the gateway. Organizations are often blind to these API calls, as well as to microservice API calls that are not routed through the API gateway.
Legacy or shadow APIs present another concern. These could predate an organization’s API security initiatives. They could also be APIs that were supposed to be decommissioned but were left active as an oversight. These APIs typically lack both ownership and can function without any visibility or security controls, just waiting to be exploited.
API discovery is more than a number. Which means you not only need visibility into how many APIs you have, but also visibility into the types of sensitive data traversing your APIs. The problem is, API gateways aren’t able to find and classify the types of sensitive data flowing through your APIs.
Experience the speed, scale, and security that only Noname can provide. You’ll never look at APIs the same way again.
