Innovation Insight for API Protection

To help address clients’ questions about API security, Gartner has recently published an Innovation Insight report providing guidance and top considerations for protecting APIs.

Highlights from the report:

  • Security leaders in high-security and regulated industry verticals express their desire during inquiries for an advanced solution that can immediately provide the required functionality.

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

  • Through 2025, at least 70% of organizations will deploy specialized runtime protection only for the public-facing APIs they produce, leaving other APIs unmonitored and lacking API protection.

  • By 2026, 40% of organizations will select their web application and API protection provider based on advanced API protections, and web application security features - up from less than 15% this year.
