Over the past few years, the threats to applications have multiplied, and newer, more dangerous attack vectors have emerged. The fastest-growing attack vectors are now API vulnerabilities, automated bot attacks, and client-side attacks. In fact, respondents surveyed for Barracuda’s report The state of application security in 2021 pointed to bot attacks, web application vulnerabilities, software supply chain attacks, and flawed API security as the top four reasons for a successful security breach at their organization.
Organizations are getting breached more than ever through their web and API applications. As newer technologies proliferate, attackers work to identify ways to bypass their security measures and breach them. APIs, bot attacks, and client-side attacks are the latest ways they are working to breach applications for fun and profit.
