APIs are central to cloud-native deployment environments, but they’re also a growing application security risk. The more APIs you use, and the more complex your API architectures, the harder your AppSec team needs to work to secure them and keep them delivering value.

This eBook is designed to help you do just that. It walks through how APIs work, the security challenges they create, and best practices to contain those risks. It will give leadership and security teams the knowledge to stop living in fear of APIs, and it can help developers create applications that are as secure as possible as they increase the usage of APIs  (which is currently 10 to 15 APIs per application!) It will also explore:

  • The risk of API sprawl
  • Why it’s hard to keep track of APIs
  • A breakdown of the top API risks
  • How to effectively scan APIs
