Enterprises in every sector are transforming digtially at a rapid clip to meet the demands of customers, employees, and partners. With this transformation comes an explosive growth in the use of application programming interfaces, as enterprises add a digital layer to serve these new expectations.
CEOs and business unit leaders are calling upon their chief security officers and chief information security officers to ensure the security of APIs and the platforms on which they run. Security must be built into the APIs themselves, but that’s not enough. Threat protection, identity services, infrastructure security, and compliance also must be carefully considered.
With all this in mind, our new eBook Securing the Digital Enterpise provides a framework to help CSOs and CISOs consider API security. It covers a wealth of critical information and considerations for IT security professionals, including:
- the two-sided nature of API authentication
- monitoring API security via data analytics
- authorization, role-based access control, logs, and audit trails
- threat protection, traffic control, infrastructure security, and compliance
This eBook also includes a comprehensive checklist to help information security professionals assess the security of their API and API infrastructure.
