A 2021 Harvard Business Review article, “Is Third-Party Software Leaving You Vulnerable to Cyberattacks?” posits that when companies buy digital products, they expect them to be secure and typically don’t test for vulnerabilities down the digital supply chain. Hackers have taken note, and incidents of attacks exploiting software weaknesses to break into organizations’ internal networks, are on the rise. Gartner predicts that API abuses will become the most frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.
In today’s podcast, I’ll be talking with Sinan Eren, one of the founders of Fyde, a Zero Trust Network Access innovator that was acquired by Barracuda. Sinan is now VP of Trust Security at Barracuda and he has some timely tips for software developers to ensure their products are developed with security best practices.
