How to Maximize Security Through Simplicity

Presented by

About this talk

Building great digital experiences often involve leveraging serverless edge computing, microservices, IaaS, client-side functionality, and APIs. These modern development practices – while designed to produce highly personalized, fast, and always-on user experiences – also introduce risk. A big reason is that IT and security teams struggle to support the business given the high velocity of code releases and the inability to keep pace with changing applications and APIs. If we take a lesson on simplicity from developers, organizations today need to rethink how cloud security not only drives stronger protections but adds value with ease of use. Managing multiple security products, for example, can translate to higher costs, more complexity, and the need for skilled talent — which is untenable for most organizations. The critical role of securing applications and APIs in today’s global business world amid evolving attacks, ranging from web app business logic attacks to API abuse to DDoS, requires holistic and extensible security you can actually use. In this session, you will learn: * Where the security market is going with converging technologies in 2022 * How adaptive security can stop the most evasive attacks, automatically * How to mitigate the OWASP API Security Top 10 vulnerabilities * How to reduce the cost, effort, and complexity of securing all your app & APIs
