Sensitive data discovery & PII protection

Protecting personally identifiable information (PII) has been a top priority for organizations considering the significant consequences associated with data breaches, which includes hefty regulatory fines. With the proliferation of applications, more and more sensitive data traverses APIs everyday. Which can leave organizations vulnerable if not addressed.

Uncover sensitive data in your APIs

Your APIs could be leaking sensitive data

APIs interact with all types of data – credit card information, health records, social security numbers, etc. Without an accurate API inventory and insight into sensitive data traffic, you cannot adequately address potential vulnerabilities and data leakage. And there can be dire consequences if sensitive data is ever exposed.

Regulatory compliance is no laughing matter

Regulators around the world continue to enact and expand requirements for how organizations handle sensitive information, such as GDPR, CCPA, and so on. Identifying where data resides, is moved to, and accessed from is critical to ensuring data compliance and avoiding costly fine.

API gateways and WAFs can’t help you

API gateways and WAFs provide limited visibility into your API estate, as they only reveal API traffic that is routed through them. The other downside is that they don’t provide visibility into the types of sensitive data that traverses your APIs. API inventory is more than just a number. You need to know how many APIs you have, including shadow and zombie APIs, as well as the types of data they engage with.

Uncover who is accessing the sensitive data

Beyond knowing the types of sensitive data routed through your APIs, you should also have visibility into how many users are engaging with those APIs. Without that level of insight, you’ll be vulnerable to a myriad of threats.
