The building blocks of these applications are microservices developed by small teams of developers that enable rapid release cycles to deliver features to market more quickly. The connective tissue that binds these microservices together to work in tandem are APIs.
Bold security threats are giving rise to a new industry of API-specific security capabilities much more powerful than current management tools.
Security is really important. There is nothing like the gut-wrenching feeling of exposing users’ data. However, security isn’t the most exciting part of web development and is often ignored.
