Static identity and secret credentials are stolen and misused by threat actors. There is no way to know if credentials are misused until it is too late. And there is no way to assure a user is protecting their credentials.
Rotate the identity and secret credential at a high frequency to disable threat actors. Enable applications to manage their own IAM system.
A recent survey revealed 78% of API attacks occurred on authenticated APIs. Authentication is no longer a safeguard for application access. Threat actors with stolen credentials gain unauthorized access.
Identity trust verification and encryption of messages verify trusted endpoint access. API keys may be passed, but if stolen they won't pass decryption.
TLS encryption hides malware in messages sent to an application endpoint. Removing encryption and scanning for malware is challenging at the speed and scale of the cloud.
Malware, even if TLS encrypted, fails SEE™ decryption when it arrives at an application endpoint. It is automatically logged and immediately discarded.
