We've been talking a lot about cybersecurity these days. It is an essential issue for all kinds of businesses, and cybersecurity trends are constantly evolving. With several million cyber attacks happening every year, not being protected would be a tremendous mistake.
Today, we're going to focus on a very relevant topic (though sometimes overlooked): API Security.
In order to do that, we have created an amazing infographic that sums up everything you need to know about API Security.
But, first of all, let's review the basics:

This infographic explores the security problems that APIs pose, common attack vectors, and recent activity in the API security market.
