All applications use APIs—they’re nothing new to the development world. But are organizations factoring API security into their broader security strategy effectively? We’ve seen high-profile breaches at well-known companies stemming from their exposure or use of insecure API endpoints. This raises the question of how your software security initiative addresses the controls you need to ensure the APIs you use and produce are secure. Within this segment, Michael Borohovski will discuss key considerations when designing APIs, along with security controls and security testing that could make or break your software. This segment is sponsored by Synopsys.
