API Security in a Cloud Native Era

Thursday, November 14, 2019
Webinar Slides

The cloud is rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for deploying enterprise applications. Microservices are at the core of building cloud-native applications due to its proven advantages such as granularity, cloud-native deployment, and scalability. With the exponential growth of the consumer base of these service offerings, enforcing microservice/API security has become one of the biggest challenges to overcome.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The need for API/Microservices Security
  • The importance of delegating security enforcement to an API Gateway
  • API Authentication and Authorization methodologies
  • OAuth2 - The de-facto standard of API Authentication
  • Protection against cyber attacks and anomalies
  • Security aspects to consider when designing Single Page Applications (SPAs)
