Open up, Modernize and Secure your Interfaces

Rapidly growing demand for exposing and consuming APIs, which enables organizations to create new business models and connect with partners and customers, has tipped the industry towards adopting lightweight RESTful APIs to expose their existing enterprise services and corporate data to external consumers. Unfortunately, many organizations tend to underestimate potential security challenges of opening up their APIs without a proper security strategy and infrastructure in place.

Such popular emerging technologies as Internet of Things or Software Defined Computing Infrastructure (SDCI), which rely significantly on API ecosystems, are also bringing new security- and identity-related challenges with them.

Creating a well-planned strategy and reliable infrastructure to expose their business functionality securely to be consumed by partners, customers and developers is a significant challenge that has to be addressed not just at the gateway level, but also along the whole information flow from backend systems to endpoint applications.

Topics of this webinar will include:

  • Challenges for your enterprise’s API strategy
  • Approaches to modernization of existing services
  • Access management for multiple types of identities
  • Core standards and protocols for API economy
  • Designing your architecture for the highest security level

In the first part of this webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will present an overview of various challenges that companies have to address when designing their API strategy, such as including modernizing legacy services to support modern standards, supporting various types of user identities, providing high-grade end-to-end communication security and data privacy and, last but not least, protecting company assets from external threats.

In the second part, Jason Macy, CTO of Forum Systems, will provide a deeper look into modernization strategies around gateway technology and discuss how architecture design principles coupled with purpose-built technology provide a sustainable approach to secure business agility.
