According to Postman, the development and adoption of APIs continues to skyrocket due to shifts in consumer, architecture and infrastructure trends. The increased development, deployment and utilization of APIs has made the need for API Governance more clear than ever. Governance of APIs encompasses many factors, including use of consistent design patterns, ability to validate against those design patterns as well as the security testing of those APIs.
API security testing is a critical – yet often missed – step when adopting a blueprint for API Governance. When there is a flaw in an API, it affects every application that relies on that API. While inadequate solutions have left many APIs untested and vulnerable, new technologies are emerging that deliver fast, automated and accurate API security testing that also integrates with API development platforms like Postman.
That’s why I’m pleased to join Kin Lane, Chief Evangelist at Postman in hosting a live webinar, “Blueprint for Governance: Integrating API Security Testing within Postman” on Thursday, May 6, 2021.
Register today to save your spot. Attendees can expect to learn the “must-haves” of API security testing within your overall governance strategy. In addition, we will put theory into practice with a demonstration of how to achieve fast, easy, accurate and scalable security testing of your APIs using Postman and WhiteHat Security technologies.
We’ll also share key insights and best practices around:
Attendees will receive exclusive access to WhiteHat’s Intelligence Directed DAST via a Limited Access Program, helping you truly test your APIs for security vulnerabilities. Register here to be the first of an exclusive group to revolutionize your secure API development.
