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

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