APIs have enabled enterprises like yours to transform countless business processes into web services, with limitless scale and reach. Or have they? In reality, RESTful APIs can have significant performance and security challenges, especially when you try to scale them.
In this talk, you’ll hear about unique methods to help address these challenges. We’ll discuss how advances in real-time Content Delivery Network (CDN) technology now allow you to cache full APIs and websites. You’ll learn how to configure and automate API caching for maximum performance.
We’ll also share insights into some of the latest web exploits and attacks impacting APIs. Tapping into Fastly’s real-world data, we’ll analyze some of the latest attack profiles in detail. Finally, you’ll receive in-depth guidance on how best to configure Web PKI (SSL/TLS) to protect your web and API stack.
Join Sean Leach, VP of Fastly, to discuss accelerating API speed and security on April 6th. We are hosting this meetup at an awesome venue with great indoor/outdoor spaces. Hope to see you there for learning, networking, and most importantly, free food and beverages!
