API Management and Security: Don’t Trade Protection for Convenience
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, January 16, 2020 TIME: 3:00pm CET, 9:00am EST
Once a purely technical concept created to make developers’ lives easier, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have evolved into one of the foundations of modern digital business. As companies are struggling to maintain their business agility, to react to the ever-changing market demands and technology landscapes, the need to deliver a new application or service to customers as quickly as possible often trumps all other considerations.
Often, security becomes an afterthought at best or, even worse, it is seen as a nuisance and an obstacle on the road to success. While the success of an API is measured by its adoption, security mechanisms are seen as friction that limits this adoption. There are also several common misconceptions around the very notion of API security. In the latest Leadership Compass API Management and Security, KuppingerCole not only places strong emphasis on API security but expands the coverage to incorporate every step of the API lifecycle.
Join this KuppingerCole webinar and learn:
- Why the API Economy is one of the most important current IT trends.
- How to ensure consistent management, governance and security of corporate APIs.
- About the current market trends for API management and security solutions.
- Why there is no “one stop shop” for API security yet.
KuppingerCole Lead Analyst Alexei Balaganski will explain why APIs are crucial for a successful business in the digital age and why you should not sacrifice security for the sake of convenience.

Digitalization evolves with the increased use of microcomputers in everyday objects like cars and smart fridges, but also in industrial applications. Therefore, communication between devices is growing accordingly. While connecting devices is supposed to make our lives easier, it poses a great challenge from a security standpoint. Every connection opens a potential backdoor for attackers to slip inside your network.
