On December 22, Global CIO Forum in association with F5 and Exclusive Networks successfully hosted the App Security: Why Advanced Threats Require Advanced Application Defense virtual roundtable. Apps enable the business to capture opportunities and customers, but attackers can disrupt strategic outcomes for financial gain.
It is critical to protect apps and APIs across architectures, clouds, and third-party integrations to reduce risks and speed up digital transformation. Increasing application development velocity improves time to market and reduces friction. Protecting critical assets with the highest real-world security efficacy is of paramount importance.
- Why apps drive a business
- Application layer security
- Defeating application fraud
The keynote speakers for the App Security: Why Advanced Threats Require Advanced Application Defense virtual roundtable were Yasser El Mashad, Cyber Security Specialist at F5 and Fouad Tawk, Regional Sales Manager, Shape Security at F5. Their presentations were followed by a panel discussion.
