APIs are everywhere, and their security is becoming challenging.
It goes without saying that APIs are deployed everywhere. For instance a website click quickly initiates a dozen REST calls directly from your browser and another dozen behind the scenes. Software engineers, like you, integrate with APIs more and more to develop new features and enhancements.
Gartner is seeing explosive growth of APIs, and estimates that by 2025 less than 50% of enterprise APIs will be managed; the companies just don’t have the capacity to do it.
Are you able to secure your company’s API sprawl?
As software engineers, we can divide APIs into two kinds: those we build & maintain ourselves (the homegrown); and those we consume (the 3rd-party externals). In this webinar, TeejLab Founder & CEO Dr. Baljeet Malhotra and MergeBase CTO Julius Musseau talked about API risks, API governance, and best practices for software engineers building and consuming APIs.
They covered the following topics:
- Why it’s essential to think about risk when building APIs
- How to protect your company from the potential damage caused by a compromised API
- API Security best practices and standards
