With the crazy rate at which APIs are developed, enterprises face a delicate situation to secure them. Data validation, input sanitisation, security testing are tasks that require a lot of attention and time. When done very late in the API lifecycle, results are usually disastrous. API Security must be fully part of the API lifecycle, as transparent as possible, preventing developers from introducing vulnerabilities early on. A bug discovered in production can cost up to 30 times more effort to solve. Security vulnerabilities are no different.
