API Tech Talk: CDN API Management Using Optimized API Distribution

Tackle the IAM and SLA challenges of cloud-based content distribution networks

Tackle the IAM and SLA challenges of cloud-based content distribution networks

 

Right now, APIs are playing a central role in content providers’ efforts to maximize customer engagement by leveraging emerging online channels via cloud-based content distribution networks (CDNs). But CDNs and API publishing have raised new access management and SLA enforcement challenges for content providers.

In this interactive online session, originally broadcast live as part of the Layer 7 Technologies API Tech Talk series, guest experts Gary Ballabio of Akamai and Francois Lascelles of Layer 7 explain how content providers can rise to these challenges using entitlement checks, access history and analytics.

Viewer questions answered in this Tech Talk include:

  • How can cloud-based APIs be secured?
  • Is it possible to offload API resources to the cloud even if they require user authentication and – if so – does this affect the ability to invoice developers?
