API Security Best Practices

Resources:

Key Armis challenges:

  • COVID increased API creation 10 fold and developers could no longer manually document and test each new API.
  • Fast API rollout left API parameters and exposed sensitive data undocumented.

Key Salt use cases:

  • Attack prevention: Salt provides runtime protection by identifying and stopping attacks targeting APIs
  • Dynamic API discovery: Salt automatically and continuously inventories all APIs as they are released or changed weekly and alerts on changes to where APIs expose sensitive data.
  • Remediation insights: Armis dev teams receive insights from the Salt solution with details about how APIs can be strengthened.
  • Compliance: Armis leverages the dynamic reporting in Salt for compliance audits and to demonstrate FedRAMP adherence.
