APIs present enterprises with many business opportunities but they also create new attack vectors that hackers can potentially exploit. APIs share many of the same threats that plague the Web but APIs are fundamentally different from Web sites and have an entirely unique risk profile that must be addressed.

In this webinar, Scott Morrison – CTO at Layer 7 Technologies – will explain in detail how an enterprise can pursue its API publishing strategy without compromising the security of its on-premise systems and data.
