A Pendulum Shift – API Security v API Management

Two Security Experts Discuss Industry Direction in This Podcast

As API security issues are becoming a regular headline – and as a result, more and more industry analysts are beginning to shift from an emphasis on full lifecycle API management towards a focus on API Security as the key baseline for any digital transformation project.

Recently, Jay Thorne, Product Advisor for Layer7 at CA Technologies, a Broadcom Company, had a chance to sit down with Alissa Knight – cybersecurity sluth and market analyst for Aite Group to talk about that exact subject.  Alissa interviewed  Jay on API Security, API Gateways, the future of security in the new API economy, and the scoop behind the growing number of API breaches.

I invite you to listen in on this episode here.
