The Dark Side of the API Economy
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Monday, June 24, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
In a single decade, Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) have evolved from a purely technical concept into one of the foundations of modern digital business, delivering operational efficiency, scalability and profitability to companies from various industries. Nowadays, everything is API-enabled: corporate data is the product and APIs are the logistics of delivering it to customers and partners.
In this webinar, we'll look at some of the myths and assumptions around protecting APIs and demonstrate how even the largest businesses risk massive data breaches by not paying enough attention to securing them. We will talk about the emerging API-aware security technologies and how they can be combined to design a comprehensive and future-proof API protection layer.
In this webinar you’ll learn about:
- The extent of “API penetration” in modern businesses
- Common myths about existing security tools
- How to make security an integral part of the entire API lifecycle
- The role of identity and intelligent automation in modern API security
Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will discuss the rapid growth of the API economy and the new risks and challenges it brings. He will present several real-life cases where insufficiently secured APIs were the cause of massive data breaches for large businesses.
Francois Lascelles, Field CTO at Ping Identity, will follow on with how traditional API security is not bullet-proof, review examples of common API vulnerabilities, and discuss the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in detecting and stopping API exploits.
