Live API Attack Simulation Webinar

In the upcoming webinar, Karthik Krishnamoorthy, CTO and Vivek Gopalan, VP of Products at Indusface demonstrate how APIs could be hacked. The session will cover: an exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability, a brute force account take-over (ATO) attack on API, a DDoS attack on an API, how a WAAP could bolster security over an API gateway

Highlights Of The Upcoming Events

Going forward, Broadcom will prioritize making it easier for business clients to establish and update their private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.

Broadcom is going to make investments in VMware Cloud Foundation, which is the software stack that supports private and hybrid clouds. 

The platform’s objective is to relieve IT staff of infrastructure management and integration responsibilities.

This will make it possible for them to provide IT services that, by reducing security risks, improving speed to market, and bringing in more money from new business services, assist in attaining business goals.

The wide range of services provided by VMware includes the following:

Application networking and security

Since threat actors are spreading laterally and taking advantage of internal systems to obtain controls, defending the perimeter is no longer sufficient.

Consumers desire several lines of security against ransomware and malware, as well as lateral attacks from unauthorized access. 

VMware’s distributed security and full visibility enable users to implement zero-trust and defense-in-depth security tactics.

The goal is to provide VMware virtualized infrastructure with lateral protection that is easier to deploy and more flexible. Techniques for emerging AI and GenAI are used to counter the changing threat scenario.

Modern applications

VMware Tanzu aims to boost customers’ business agility. Tanzu significantly increases developer productivity while empowering platform teams to monitor and enforce application standards, uphold security and compliance, and monitor app performance.

It is specifically tuned for app-dev frameworks like Spring, the industry-leading enterprise Java application framework.

VMware Tanzu’s application-centric approach, which makes use of a common data and control model, enables platform and cloud operations teams to have more streamlined experiences along with software agility.

Software-enabled innovations from the data center to the edge

Software-enabled innovation can assist enterprises in producing better outcomes for a variety of workloads, ranging from data center to edge.

Reports say that within days of the merger agreement’s expiration, Broadcom received all regulatory clearances after a grueling 18-month wait.

Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, Israel, Japan, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and “foreign investment control clearance in all necessary jurisdictions” were among the countries in which Broadcom claimed to have legal approvals.

Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
