Achieving Comprehensive API Security with NGINX & Okta


Did you know that “sensitive data exposure” by APIs is #3 on the OWASP Top 10 Web Application Security Risks list? According to Gartner, by 2022 API abuses will be the leading attack vector for data breaches within enterprise web applications.

Securing the API environment involves every API touchpoint – authenticating and authorizing API clients (third‑party applications and developers), rate limiting API calls to mitigate distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and protecting the backend applications that process the API calls. Attend this webinar to learn how to secure every API touchpoint using the NGINX Controller API Management Module and Okta API Access Management. The webinar includes a live demo of the API Management Module and Okta in action.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

About key API management capabilities offered by NGINX Controller

How to authenticate and authorize API clients using Okta

About rate limiting API calls using NGINX Controller

How to use Okta and the API Management Module together effectively, in a live demo
