The truth is, most web app and API security tools were designed for a very different era. A time before developers and security practitioners worked together, before applications were globally distributed and API-based. But attackers are developers too, and they aren’t bogged down by the limitations of legacy solutions. It’s never been more clear that it’s time for a change. Sean will outline new rules for web application and API security that respect the way modern applications are built.
