Discover all APIs

According to Gartner, “By 2024, API abuses and related data breaches will nearly double." Few businesses have a good handle on their API or application inventory. Without an accurate API inventory with context-based threat details, it is impossible to know where to effectively apply security efforts.

Why API discovery is important

API gateways and WAFs have limited visibility

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.

Shadow APIs can leave you vulnerable

Legacy or zombie 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.

Sensitive data can 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.

Introducing Posture Management

Noname Security Posture Management helps customers assess every API, including legacy and shadow APIs, and determine which ones are critical to the business. In combination with that inventory, we identify misconfigurations and vulnerabilities in the source code, network configuration, and policy.
