Gartner® Report - Predicts 2022

APIs Demand Improved Security and Management

Every year, Gartner issues a series of “Gartner Predicts” reports. They choose only the technologies they see as a critical priority, and they share top-level guidance on how to approach it.

This year, API security is a key focus area, and the Gartner findings include:

  • "Unmanaged and unsecured APIs create vulnerabilities that could accelerate multimillion-dollar security incidents.

  • By 2025, less than 50% of enterprise APIs will be managed, as explosive growth in APIs surpasses the capabilities of API management tools.

  • Improve API security posture by developing a security strategy for threat protection, API security testing, and API access control that leverages newer approaches and vendor solutions."

Download this report to get useful guidance on the future of APIs and how to maximize the benefits of APIs while mitigating your risk.
