At Cloudflare, we know APIs make the app world go around. That is why we make our massive global network your API security gateway. With API discovery and powerful, layered API defenses, Cloudflare ensures APIs drive business success like never before.
Almost 60% of the world's internet traffic is API-related. And APIs are growing at ~40 percent. It is time for such a large, growing attack vector to enjoy dedicated, powerful protections.
API traffic is growing 39% annually, while web traffic is declining, meaning API security challenges are here to stay.
According to Gartner, by 2022 API abuses will be the most-frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.
OWASP released a new top ten - focused exclusively on API security risks that security approaches must account for:
