Contrast Security and Enterprise Strategy Group's Senior Security Analyst to Share with Corporate Leaders How to Mitigate API Security Risks in the Future
July 7, 2022 — Los Altos, CA — Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure-as-they code, today announced it is co-hosting the “Future of API Security” webinar at 1:00 p.m. PST / 4:00 p.m. EST, on Wednesday, July 20 along with Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) Senior Analyst Melinda Marks, who covers application and cloud security.
Contrast’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer Jeff Williams will join the webinar hosted by Marks to discuss:
- The future of enterprise API security
- What organizations need to know to secure their APIs
- Strategies to stay ahead of rapid CI/CD lifecycle challenges
- The path forward to unify developer and security teams and build secure APIs
“ESG research showed 48% of developers said they regularly push vulnerable code to production, and 54% of those who said they push vulnerable code said they do so to meet critical deadlines,” said Melinda Marks, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Companies are adding layers of tools to try to protect applications throughout the software development lifecycle, but with faster development cycles and a proliferation of APIs to connect applications to the resources they need to run, this does not scale. I look forward to discussing how to mitigate security risk with Contrast Security even as the API attack surface increases with faster development processes.”
- What: The live webinar “The Future of API Security” will educate attendees on the current security market and how companies can re-strategize their API security approach to make development smoother and more efficient for developers and security teams.
