in keeping APIs secure
Traditional approaches to secure APIs are broken
Protecting APIs with gateways and WAFs creates a false sense of security. These API security approaches cannot keep up with the pace of changing environments such as cloud, containers and microservices. Instead, the growing complexity requires a continuous API security testing approach and real-time feedback.
You cannot protect what you cannot see
The current API security approach lacks visibility and accuracy, depending entirely on manual security testing that needs to be run by experts to triage and interpret the results. The lack of visibility of the attack surface area leaves security teams unaware of the impact of breaches.
APIs with security vulnerabilities go into production
Inefficient development cycles fail to prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities that cyberattacks can exploit. Many false positives and a growing list of vulnerabilities create a daunting backlog of cyber debt.
Integrated modern API
Know your APIs
Complete runtime inventory of APIs. Ensure an up-to-date inventory of APIs that are relevant, in development and exposed.
Write secure code
Conduct runtime analysis during functional testing. Remediate as you code. As you test more routes, you'll discover and secure additional APIs.
Secure the supply chain
Find known vulnerabilities in active third-party libraries, frameworks and services. Easily remediate known vulnerabilities without the need for expertise.
Identify probes and attacks on both known and unknown vulnerabilities and prevent exploits.
that are secure
ADOPT A SHIFT LEFT, SHIELD RIGHT STRATEGY
Adopt a shift left strategy to remediate vulnerabilities from DAY ONE while shielding right against vulnerabilities and zero-day attacks without the need for tuning or reconfiguration.
Understand your APIs
Understand every aspect of your APIs from building code to production and protect against all known and unknown vulnerability attacks in every environment.
Bridge the CI/CD gap
Reduce timelines and improve efficiencies to remediate APIs with visualizations of data flows, remediation guidance and insights to map the surface attack area.
Blog: Building a Modern API Security Strategy: A Five-Part Series — Overview
By Jeff Williams, Contrast Co-Founder & CTO
In this series, we’ll dive into one each week — starting next week — to show how a modern, integrated API security platform manages to accomplish what traditional API or application security can’t do: namely, to secure APIs from the inside out.

How to Secure APIs at DevOps Speed
This eBook shows how an instrumentation-based approach to security—protection that is built into the application itself—can help automatically detect and protect API vulnerabilities, simplify deployment, scale to accommodate growing DevOps volumes, and enhance ongoing management processes.
Monitor and scan all your applications in one platform at lightning speeds.
