Securing APIs and microservices: A deep dive into mitigating risks and the fundamental security principles that guide your strategy for a resilient and future-proof digital ecosystem

APIs and Microservices are as widely used as they’ve ever been and continue to grow as building modern applications is infused into every organization. Unfortunately, that popularity brings an equal level of attention from attackers trying to exploit the unknown vulnerabilities in the application stack. Sound security practices, processes, and tooling, are essential to mitigating risks.

Key Takeaways

  • APIs and Microservices can be vulnerable vectors of attack if not secured.
  • Sound security pillars apply equally as they do to other technologies.
  • Applying those pillars with an API Gateway, ServiceMesh, and other tools is a prudent and necessary response.
