API security newsletter

IoT continues to heavily rely on devices being in a “safe” network. For example, among other issues, the 2020 Unit 42 IoT Threat Report by Palo Alto Networks found that 98% of all IoT device traffic is not even encrypted.

For their report, Unit 42 analyzed 1.2 million IoT devices across enterprise IT and healthcare organizations in the United States to identify the top IoT threats and provide recommendations how to mitigate them. This means that the report gives a very good impression of the lay of the land in IoT.

Since APIs are an integral part of the IoT world, the report is very valuable from the API security perspective.
