APISecurity.io Community & Newsletter Launched

As many of you probably know by now, last month I joined 42 Crunch as VP of Cloud Platform. As one of my first pet projects in the company, today we are launching https://apisecurity.io – so I wanted to take a few minutes to explain our thinking and goals for the project.

API economy is on the rise:

  • Twilio just announced that it is acquiring SendGrid for $2 billion,
  • Even non-tech companies are becoming more and more API-oriented: Expedia attributes more than 80% of its revenue to APIs,
  • IoT is on the rise with smart-everything devices getting into our homes (there is an Alexa-enabled microwave from Amazon now!), workplaces, and cities.

All of this makes API security critical. In fact, Gartner expects that by 2022, APIs will become the most common attack vector out there.

42 Crunch provides end-to-end API security solutions from OpenAPI/Swagger file assessment, to live API scanning, to API firewalls, and has been named Cool Vendor of the Year by Gartner.

APISecurity.io is going to be our community hub for all things API Security. We have just launched it and it hosts a weekly newsletter with the major news from API Security delivered to your mailbox once a week.

See you there!
