Build in security, improve productivity, accelerate time to market

DevSecOps-API Development

Key to secure API development is to make it easy for development teams to deliver security throughout the SDLC, without ever having to leave their preferred development environment.  Enterprises are increasingly looking to  empower their developers with the right tooling  that allows them to build secure APIs while removing any potential security bottlenecks.

Key elements of secure API development include:

A crucial element of secure APIs is the development process where specifications are transformed into production APIs by developers.

  • Choice of languages, libraries, and frameworks
  • Correct configuration of frameworks to ensure security best practice is followed
  • Defensive coding — do not trust user input, handle all unexpected failures
  • \Use central points of enforcement of authentication and authorization and avoid ‘spaghetti code’

32% of firms admitted to only implementing API security standards in their production environment.
