​Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) provide a vehicle for resources–irrespective of vendor, cloud technology, or even legacy on-premise solution—to exchange information and initiate tasks and workflows. Today, APIs are a powerful force behind the automation, integration, continuous development (CD), and secure development operations (DevSecOps) that is powering the next wave of technology innovation. Not all APIs are created equal and, most importantly, the security to prevent malicious abuse of the API can vary just as wildly between vendors as well serving similar functions.
