APIs, or application programming interfaces, are the foundation of modern software applications, allowing for smooth communication and data interchange between various systems and platforms. They provide an interface for developers to engage with external services, allowing them to integrate numerous capabilities into their own applications.
This increased reliance on APIs, however, has made them appealing targets for fraudsters. API breaches have become a major worry in the realm of cybersecurity in recent years. Inadequate security measures provided by developers and organizations are one of the primary causes of the surge in API breaches. Many APIs are insecure, making them subject to attacks.
