Managing the Risks Posed By APIsShreyans Mehta of Cequence Security on the API Security Landscape
APIs are exposing a lot of business logic to exploitation, says Shreyans Mehta, co-founder and CTO at Cequence Security, who offers insights on enhancing API security.
”There is a lack of visibility in the way the APIs are being exposed.” Mehta says. “It’s very important to bubble up the attack surface: What are the APIs that are exposed?”
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Mehta also discusses:
- Increasing the attack surface through APIs;
- Fundamentals of API security;
- Turning API security into a business enabler.
Mehta is co-founder at CTO at Cequence Security. He previously was architect and technical director at Symantec, where he led the development of one of the most advanced network security platforms and intrusion prevention technologies based on real-time packet inspection and cloud-based big data analytics. In partnership with VMware, he developed one of the first agentless IPS engines that transparently protect virtual machines.
