Applications have been powered by APIs for years, but heavier focuses on automation and cloud-native design are greatly affecting the security landscape. APIs are at the heart of any business regardless of industry  and are increasing in both volume and capabilities. Hackers realize the vital role APIs have in connecting critical data and services, and so have increased their focus on attacking APIs. Old ways of thinking about API security must change too.

In this webinar, a panel of experts will bust five common myths surrounding API security today, discuss the pitfalls of some misguided API security approaches, cut through the fluff of a handful of security industry trends and share recommendations on how to improve your organization’s API security strategy.

Key takeaways:

  • The impacts of technology trends like zero trust, cloud enablement, containerization and shift-left mantra to API security
  • Are traditional security controls enough for API security, or are they one component of an API security strategy?
  • Why a full lifecycle approach is important when wrestling with API security
  • If the scope of your organization’s API security problem is larger than suspected, what capabilities should you seek in dedicated API security solutions?
