API Management and API Security are a must today. Be it specific requirements such as PSD II or the demand for rapidly creating new applications in the context of bimodal IT and Digital Transformation, organizations must open up APIs and manage and secure these adequately. We will look at the requirements and solutions for modern API Management and API Security.

In this session, participants will look at the Top 5 requirements for API Management/Security solutions and discuss the pros and cons of stand-alone vs. integrated (e.g. into Web Application Firewalls) solutions.

By opening new product delivery channels such as Mobile App’s using APIs, many businesses are becoming API platforms. This trend that has fostered the API economy.

With new opportunities come new threats. Entering the API economy means opening your internal infrastructure to the public. One of the greatest challenges that is becoming apparent is how to address API security in this complex and hostile environment. To help mitigate these risks and counter the external threats Onegini proposes a Secure API Architecture that delivers components to avoid risk and provide end-to-end security, from device to API.
