Mobile and Cloud initiatives are driving enterprises to expose data and applications to the outside world. Whether SOAP, REST or JSON, these APIs give enterprises an efficient way to open up information to services running in the Cloud and apps running on mobile devices like the iPad. However, securing and governing the lifecycle and operation of these APIs is not straightforward. It requires new approaches to access, protection and management. This invariably requires adoption of new technologies such as OAuth, which are not yet well understood.
In this webinar from Layer 7, featuring guest identity expert and Forrester principal analyst Eve Maler, enterprises will get a practical overview of what they need to know when approaching APIs and technologies like OAuth.
