2019 State of the Internet / Security: Retail Attacks and API Traffic

Security teams are increasingly becoming an integral part of business, and are more vital than ever to success. They have evolved and are increasingly seen as legitimate business partners and growth enablers.

This issue of State of the Internet / Security provides insightful security research and intelligence into three security risks many organizations may overlook. First, a survey of API traffic reveals that APIs now account for 83% of all hits, while HTML traffic has fallen to 17% of traffic. Second, research into DNS traffic reveals that IPv6 traffic may be underreported; many systems capable of IPv6 still show a preference for IPv4.

Lastly, our look at credential abuse and the botnets that abuse retailer inventories shows that this is a rising problem that needs attention.
