“Zombie” APIs top the list of API security concerns
With significant API security issues happening so frequently, it stands to reason that respondents have real concerns about their API security programs. Outdated/zombie APIs top their concerns, with 54% indicating that it is of high concern. Given that respondents also identified significant documentation challenges in their organizations, it’s highly likely most environments are running APIs that are not documented. So, even though the lowest percentage (20%) cited shadow APIs as a top concern, the risk in this area is likely higher than many respondents realize.
