About this talk

Enterprises around the globe are rapidly opening up their back-end systems and databases to the outside world using APIs. Drivers for doing this include everything from improving customer service, to monetizing corporate information assets and meeting regulatory requirements. For businesses and systems, however, that were never designed to be opened up to the outside world, APIs can expose them to a whole new range of major security threats and attacks. This webinar will examine this important and growing industry trend from a vendor-agnostic perspective, including: - What are the emerging threats and risks with APIs? - What API security controls and practices should be considered and how can cloud-based solutions assist? - What to look for when evaluating API security solutions?
