In recent years, the adoption of public cloud infrastructures has surged, providing organizations with unparalleled flexibility and scalability. But this shift has also introduced a new set of challenges when it comes to protecting web applications and APIs that are hosted on these platforms.
How does an organization achieve peace of mind with security while overcoming the challenges of complex hybrid and multi-cloud networks? Here are the top reasons why your organization should consider implementing a cloud-native firewall service to protect your AWS environments and applications.
APIs have become increasingly popular as they are used to connect different systems, services and applications. But this makes them an attractive target for cybercriminals who want to exploits flaws and access sensitive data. Here are five critical reasons you need to conduct API security testing.
ChatGPT set the world on fire six months ago, and since then a slew of companies have released features or products built on or around generative AI - some of them completely legitimate and some of them little more than snake oil. Does AI makes sense everywhere for everything? Absolutely not.
Cisco Secure Access is a security service edge solution that delivers zero trust access to efficiently solve today's challenge of safely connecting anything to anywhere and reimagines the experience to make it better for users, easier for IT and safer for everyone.
Real-time protection against API attacks is nonnegotiable for the protection of any web application or digital service that relies on application programming interfaces. Here are some of the most common types of API attacks and strategies for protecting against them in real time.
Companies are increasingly concerned about the security of applications built on open source components, especially when they’re involved in mergers and acquisitions. Just like copyright for works of art, each piece of open source software has a license that states legally binding conditions for its use. Licenses...
The ongoing rise in open source vulnerabilities and software supply chain attacks poses a growing threat to businesses, which heavily rely on applications for success. Between 70 and 90 percent of organizations’ code base is open source, while vulnerabilities such as Log4j have significantly exposed organizations...
Application journeys are fluid in practice because applications can live anywhere. Complex deployments with too many tools to configure and manage and overwhelmed IT teams lead to mistakes, so organizations should take a cybersecurity mesh platform approach to securing their application journeys.
Despite the significant advances technology has made over the past few years, email remains one of the best tools for cybercriminals. Training is just one piece of the puzzle. The best defense against today's cybercrime landscape is a multilayered security strategy.
API security platforms have become an essential part of any organization's cybersecurity strategy, but with so many options available, it can be difficult to know how to choose the right one. In this article, we'll discuss how to evaluate API security platforms and what factors to consider.
Traditional licensing models that lock organizations into fixed solutions or time periods are no longer ideal. Organizations need to consider usage-based licensing approaches that offer flexibility to deploy whatever solutions are required, wherever they are needed, for whatever length of time.
Application security testing, or AST, and API security testing are important components of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. We'll discuss the application and API security best practices for each type of testing, the use cases, and how they protect your business from cyberattacks.
Manual API discovery is impossible due to the sheer number of APIs available, their constant changes, poor documentation, different formats and protocols, and different authentication and security requirements. Given these challenges, the solution is to use automated API discovery tools.
Attackers adapted their email-based techniques throughout 2022, cycling through tactics in the hopes of evading human and cybersecurity measures. The 2023 OpenText Cybersecurity Threat Report confirms that building a multilayered approach to defense is core to cybersecurity and cyber resilience.
