Securing APIs at DevOps Speed


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by contrast security

Attend this webinar if you are a Developer who wants to push code faster by removing the obstacles of securing APIs as mandated by your security teams. With APIs part of virtually every application, this pretty much includes every developer.

In this webinar, Contrast Security’s Director of Developer Relations, Erik Costlow will discuss:

  • The average percentage of vulnerabilities present in today’s modern applications,
  • How this percentage is the same today as it was almost 20 years – and why developers should care,
  • The likelihood of application API’s being attacked,
  • How the tools developers use today are outdated and slow and cannot protect APIs from advanced threats,
  • Recommendations on protecting APIs and applications with a modern security platform that instruments applications with security code.

Development team and leaders want to push code faster and write good code while reducing interference from security teams. The only way to achieve these objectives is to rethink AppSec by integrating it into the DevOps pipeline.
