Contrast Security Exposes Weak API Security Programs that Leave Enterprises Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks at API World 2022
Code security leader addresses key components of a successful API security program to meet modern-day application security demands
Los Altos, CA — October 20, 2022 — Contrast Security (Contrast), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure as they code, today announced that its Chief Product Officer Steve Wilson will present a mainstage Pro Talk on modern web application security at the API World 2022 Conference and Expo. Held October 25 through November 3 in Silicon Valley and virtually, API World is the largest industry event dedicated to organizing the new “API Economy” of coders, startups and enterprises that consume or provide multiple application programming interfaces (APIs).
“Today’s modern web application is really a conglomeration of interconnected APIs, microservices, web apps, frameworks, libraries and serverless functions spread across multiple cloud and on-premise environments. That is why organizations cannot stop at simply inventorying APIs,” said Wilson. “I’m looking forward to giving API World attendees practical guidance on the steps they can take to improve their API Security programs immediately.”
- What: Wilson will discuss the five major components of an API security program during his in-person and virtual “PRO TALK (API): API Security Doesn’t Stop at Inventory” sessions. He will also dive into detection, security testing, securing libraries, runtime protection and access management, focusing on automation and review the pros and cons of traditional scanning and perimeter tools as well as modern instrumentation-based security tools.
- When/Where: In-person on the mainstage at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California from 2:30-2:55 p.m. PT on Wednesday, October 26 and virtually at 2:30-2:55 p.m. PT on Wednesday, November 2.
