API Security

Application Programming Interface (API) security refers to the protection of the application programming interface (API) structure, which allows two applications to talk to each other. For example: sending an instant message, checking the weather on your phone, or making online reservations.
The API acts as the 'middle man', meaning your device is never fully exposed to other servers - and other servers are never fully exposed to you either.
This is a fundamental extra level of cybersecurity.
Crucially, the API itself also needs to be secure, so that an attacker won't be able to exploit the API to deliver an attack.
