Taking Control of Customer IAM
API Authorization Is Critical for API Security
Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) is how modern companies give their end users access to their digital properties, as well as how they govern, collect, analyze, and securely store data for those users.
Modern applications are built using APIs, and API Authorization is a core component of CIAM. This makes API Authorization a critical part of API Security!
Authorization as a Service — A Booming Market Category
There is a new wave of companies doing the same for API Authorization. Authorization as a Service is a fast growing market category driven by a slew of OSS and commercial vendors including Zanzibar, Styra, Oso, Permit.io, Aserto, etc.
Implementing API Authorization is Hard
Visualization of API Access Behavior is Critical
Often API authorization is retrofitted into existing applications, making visualization of authorization behavior a necessity.
Carta and Gusto describe how visibility of API access patterns was critical in implementing proper access controls.
Testing API Access Controls is Developer Toil
When you have hundreds of APIs spread across dozens of distributed service teams, ensuring that your API permissions are solid, is undifferentiated heavy lifting.
