The enterprise use of APIs is growing exponentially. Companies face a difficult choice. They must shift towards a software-based, digital approach to service and product delivery – or get left behind. Agile development, business pressure and the complexity of API security have made security teams life very complicated. And to make matters more complicated, the adoption of microservices architectures has multiplied the number of API endpoints that you have to protect. API security flaws are injected at many different levels of the API lifecycle: in requirements, development, deployment and monitoring. It is proven that detecting and fixing vulnerabilities during production or post-release time is up to 30 times more difficult than earlier in the API lifecycle. Security should be easy to consider at requirements phase, applied during development by attaching pre-defined policies to APIs and ensuring that security tests are performed as part of the continuous delivery of the APIs. In this presentation you will learn: • Security risks at each stage of the API lifecycle, and how to mitigate them. • How to implement an end-to-end automated API security model that development, security and operations teams will love. • How to think positive! Why a positive security model works.
