API security is the key to business success: here’s how easily DACH organizations can implement it.

Axway and Easirun sponsor the IT Days to highlight API security as the key to the business success for DACH organizations

On December 12-15th, Axway and EasiRun are sponsoring the digital IT Days in Germany to highlight API security as the key to business success for organizations in Europe’s German-speaking countries (DACH region).

API security concerns continue to hold back organizations

Analysts predict that by 2025, less than 50% of enterprise APIs will be managed, as explosive growth in APIs surpasses the capabilities of API management tools. APIs are now at the heart of digital activities, as organizations large and small develop APIs to improve their link with customers, exchange different data, connect their hybrid and modular architectures, and invent new services and new uses.

However, while APIs enable organizations to re-invent their business models, they can also create major management and security challenges, such as:

  • Authentication and Authorization (API1, API2, API4, API5)
  • Data Protection (API3, API6, API8)
  • Governance and Operations (API7, API9, API10)

So, how could IT Architects and IT Managers easily and securely develop an API program on-premises or in the cloud for their organizations and still using their current legacy systems and resources?

Achieve high security and operations performance by using the Amplify API Management Platform

With Amplify, you have total control over your APIs throughout the entire API lifecycle – from smart design, testing, and fast deployment to secure API reuse and extension to outside systems and apps.

“Our dedicated cyber security team now has a single point of control for API security. We use the solution to manage our external connections with web-based applications and defend our organization against up to five million cyberattacks per day,” says Walter Karl, Lead Architect, IT Department at Bundesagentur für Arbeit.

Moreover, the Amplify API Management Platform positions customizable security policies for your APIs, and the critical data with processes they expose:

  • Automatically detect your APIs, check vulnerable endpoints, and block API cyberattacks.
  • Use 200 preconfigured policies for API authentication, authorization, content filtering, and more.
  • Reduce vulnerability risks with Common Criteria certification as well as pending EAL4+ certification – the highest security level for an API management solution.

More than 11,000 companies around the world trust Axway to extend the value of their legacy technology investments.
