The Limits of Shift-Left in API Security

Balancing build pipeline security and API security vulnerabilities in DevOps

Organizations often struggle as they get into shift-left initiatives. Particularly, factoring security checks into development and release processes commonly results in a number of headaches including:

  • “Full” coverage requires sourcing multiple types of expensive security testing tooling
  • Tooling must be integrated and automated to serve the pipeline

Even if you succeed at satisfying these requirements, a number of other problems emerge for organizations with the myopic view that securing the build pipeline is the end goal of an API security strategy.
