API Management and Security: Don’t Trade Protection for Convenience

Please use your KuppingerCole account to log in or create one, if you don't have it yet.


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.
