API security should be a key part of any organization's security strategy today; however, it's often overlooked. APIs make up 83 percent of all web traffic, and they play a vital role in nearly all modern mobile and web applications, as well as containers and microservices. APIs are designed to be accessed by third parties, which exposes them to a broader spectrum of potential attacks compared to traditional web applications ...

APIs don't exist in a vacuum — they need a way to be tied to your backend systems. This is where a multi-function iPaaS can assist. When combined with the power of API governance to support DevOps, you've just equipped your team with its version of Batman and Robin, the heroes of your organization's digital transformation ...

I'm hoping that low-code ceases to be a topic of conversation. It won, it's everywhere, and thus it's no longer special. What I'd like to see us talk about more is that there's an overall approach that can address a lot of these at the same time. And while I use the term more frequently than most, I'm hardly the only person advocating the idea of an application factory ...

Low-code development tools change the application development process less than we probably think. Of course they help, but the problems we had before low-code's rise to popularity are still with us — and still unsolved ...

There's tremendous pressure on DevOps teams to deliver business-critical applications and services with speed and agility. As a result, DevOps teams will often take the path of least resistance to meeting deadlines, even if it means taking security shortcuts. One such example is the provisioning and management of digital certificates may stray from enterprise-wide PKI policy which can expose security weaknesses and vulnerabilities ...

It's understandable that when we consider users now expect outstanding, digitally-enabled experiences as standard, it permeates all aspects of an organization. Business units expect technology solutions faster, applications are expected to be planned, developed, tested, and deployed in weeks — if not days — and wholescale digital transformation projects should happen quickly ...

CI/CD is a common phrase in the DevOps lexicon. Despite its everyday use, many lack a clear understanding of its exact definition. While continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery/deployment (CD) are inherently linked, they do not always coexist. This blog provides a breakdown of CI and CD and shows how the combination enhances software development ...

Visual experiences have the ability to create excitement around a brand, build customer trust, and continually engage customers ... Yet, to achieve high levels of engagement, media assets must be created, managed and deployed quickly and at scale. This task falls to developers, who face an array of challenges ...

Developers are leveraging a variety of tools, platforms, languages, and services to deliver more sophisticated features and functionality. However, every additional component used to build an application increases the size of the attack surface and the risk of an attack. Threat actors have a greater chance of discovering a vulnerability, misconfiguration, or bug that can serve as a toehold into the environment ...

For the last decade, the concept of shifting security left has surged exponentially among practitioners, as the results of this approach are astounding. The ability to deliver secure code faster, reduce vulnerabilities in production, and drive efficiencies across application security and development teams are a clear win for any organization, right? ...

The prevalence of team silos and point solutions throughout the DevSecOps lifecycle make it increasingly difficult for development, security, and operational teams to have comprehensive visibility into the threats affecting their cloud environments. In fact, according to a recent Dynatrace study, 77% of chief information security officers (CISOs) say it's a significant challenge to prioritize vulnerabilities because of a lack of information about the risks they pose ...

At its simplest, the software industry uses multi-tenancy to explain where software or its architecture splits into manageable chunks. These chunks could save money, simplify processes, or make things safer or easier for customers. Rather than try to unravel the whole term, it's easier to explain the scenarios typically described as multi-tenancy ...

Fraud detection, typically seen as a solution outside of cybersecurity, has taken on a new dimension in recent times. Digital fraud has emerged as a significant threat to businesses and individuals alike. APIs play a pivotal role in this landscape, often serving as the gateway for fraudulent activities ... As the sophistication and frequency of digital fraud continue to rise, understanding the connection between API security and fraud has never been more critical ...

What makes an engineering team elite? ... While I won't be the last to ask this question, our industry has come a long way in defining engineering excellence, providing parameters through which to define what constitutes as "elite." But what exactly should you measure to benchmark elite engineering performance? ...
