Re: API Security and good practices

Great recommendations. My favorite is "Use an API Gateway". I love it when developers tell me that the gateway is a security boundary control, but they have no idea what controls if any are turned on or off. Sadly, gateway appliances are often a white elephant that does not have enough resources to properly manage and govern enterprise APIs.

@AppDefectsBut look at the definition of an API Gateway for instance:

It's a blooming reverse proxy....
