Attacks across a variety of flavors—login attacks, API-specific DDoS attacks, and application and data attacks—are driving the need to build additional layers of security and increase collaboration between and IT and security operations teams.
Read the white paper written by The API Evangelist, Kin Lane, which will deepen your knowledge of APIs and their unique security requirements. You'll also gain actionable insights to proactively protect your enterprise.
