October 22, 2020


Why Read This Report

From simple internal flows between parts of a microservice app to major B2B transactions worth millions, APIs serve a huge range of scenarios, users, and processes. They provide a foundation for innovation and digital transformation at multiple levels — and at each level, they open security holes and create privacy risks. This report provides security pros a broad-based view of API security strategies, tools, and considerations as a working model for collaboration with digital channel executives, application developers, and enterprise, data, and infrastructure architects.
