10 characteristics for securing microservices

Businesses require a next-generation WAF that enables secure delivery of applications at the speed of the software development life cycle, is as flexible as the dynamic environment and threat landscape and adapts to the needs of the business.

However, before considering any solution, make sure it meets the requirements of both development and operations (DevOps) and security teams.

This resource provides a checklist of 10 characteristics to look for when considering protection to data and applications in a service mesh architecture.

  • API Security for Dummies

    Application programming interfaces (APIs) are an often-overlooked attack vector, although this technology is how most modern applications transfer data to external users and internally between services.

    The short-lived and dispersed nature of modern applications makes traditional security practices — much of which were manual — ineffective.

    Organizations must adopt modern security practices and automation to secure APIs.

    Want to learn more? API Security for Dummies is a high-level introduction to the key concepts of API security and DevSecOps.

    • The growth of the API economy
    • API security challenges (how to address them)

  • Checklist: Top 6 API security needs for serverless apps

    Serverless computing is gaining momentum among developers. Mid-level software engineers are building apps that deliver at the scale and business value that used to require a few senior architects to help design.

    These are exciting times for software developers; however, security pros look at this new world and have some concerns. It means that nearly all levels of developers can deploy code and potentially create exposure for their organization.

    With serverless computing in its infancy and few real security tools for this technology available today, creating business risk with an application is more than a possibility.

    In this white paper, discover a check list of top 6 API security needs for serverless apps along with questions to ask about your serverless app environment.
