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!
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.
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.
When you have hundreds of APIs spread across dozens of distributed service teams, ensuring that your API permissions are solid, is undifferentiated heavy lifting.
API access controls are good only if they work correctly. Many data leaks are due to misconfigurations in the access control model for APIs.
