Chalk Talk: IAM, Gateways, and WAFs

API MythBusters Video Series

This video series uses visual and illustrative techniques to debunk common industry myths surrounding API security, cut through the fluff of security industry trends, and guide you in your API security strategy.

In this episode, we cover the use of API gateways and web application firewalls (WAF) to protect APIs. Access control with strong authentication and authorization is critical for any API, but is that approach enough to protect your organization’s APIs? And why do API gateways and WAFs fail to catch many API attacks? We address the current state of message filtering and threat protection and explain why your organization needs more.
