API Security - Okta

Secure access to your APIs, supporting your modern web and mobile applications and service-to-service scenarios.

Accessing data in a flexible way

We are sharing more data—in more ways, to more users than ever before—through backend systems, customer-facing websites or partner-facing mobile applications. This makes companies more vulnerable to losing important data.

APIs can help you by letting you access data in a flexible way, including independently through a mobile or single-page app. You only have to make sure this happens securely! We can help you by checking whether or not your APIs are secure.

The importance of securing your API’s

Through years of experience, we’ve seen unsecure APIs publicly available too often. Mobile app developers often think that when the API is hidden within the application, no extra security is needed. They couldn’t be more wrong.

If an API is online, it is susceptible to abuse and therefore it should be protected—at all times!

By 2022, API abuse will be the most-frequent attack vector – Gartner

According to Gartner, by 2022, API abuse will be the most-frequent attack vector resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.

API Access Management is the next generation of Access Management technology that supports modern applications

API Access Management is adding security for APIs by using protocols like OAuth combined with an API Gateway. The API Access Management solution provides a centralized point of control with closely monitored policies and context-aware Access Management.

Why would you do this? Because today’s trusted partner may be tomorrow’s compromised system, allowing attackers to mimic legitimate users!
