Financial services APIs are frequently the goal of malicious bot assaults due to the high-value data that is processed. A bank that has adopted open banking standards by making APIs accessible to clients and companions can use Advanced API Security to make it simpler to analyze traffic patterns and identify the sources of malicious traffic. You may experience this when your bank allows you to entry your data with a third-party application. While a malicious hacker could try to use a bot to entry this information, Advanced API Security can help the bank’s API team to identify and stop malicious bot activity in API traffic.
