Lessons from the FinTech Trenches: Securing APIs at Finastra


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by SALT SECURITY

Thursday, February 4, 2021
3 p.m.ET
Finastra provides a range of financial software solutions that serve and connect FinTech companies and banks – solutions that depend on APIs. Seeing other organizations suffer API breaches, security leadership at Finastra recognized that API attacks were getting more sophisticated and that traditional security tools like WAFs and API gateways weren’t capable of stopping these attackers.
The company built out a comprehensive approach to API security, including:
  • ensuring a complete inventory of APIs and the data they expose
  • improving API security posture in pre-production
  • enabling runtime protections to stop API attacks before they succeed
  • creating a feedback loop where dev teams could learn from attackers’ attempts
Nir Valtman, head of product and data security at Finastra, will share his lessons learned as he’s integrated API security across the entire API lifecycle. Come get your questions answered from one of the leading innovators in API security.
