FROM THE VAULT: Webinar – Managing API Security in SaaS & Cloud presented with the Cloud Security Alliance
This week’s dip into the Layer 7 archive provides real-world advice on how providers of Cloud services can securely expose their APIs to third-party developers. Featuring input from eBay Chief Security Strategist Liam Lynch, Managing API Security in SaaS & Cloud will definitely be of interest to anyone who enjoyed our recent Webinar with Best Buy and Amazon Web Services.
For Cloud providers, API publishing has become critical to enabling integration with enterprise systems, sharing information across affiliate Web sites and providing mobile access to services. Of course, Cloud computing and API publishing create all sorts of new security concerns, which is where secure integration providers like Layer 7 come in.
This webinar was co-presented with our friends at the Cloud Security Alliance but it’s about more than just security. A truly safe and secure API publishing programming will have to tackle the full range of API management concerns. Specifically, Cloud API publishers need ways to address versioning and to meter consumption without burdening either developers or consumers.
