Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Today, managed APIs are at the forefront of enterprise strategy—empowering new monetization and ecosystem development opportunities by extending processes and services to customers, partners, and other internal and external market participants. WSO2 Director of Security Prabath Siriwardena and WSO2 Director of Product Management Isabelle Mauny will examine API security and the management of API ecosystems, respectively, at the API Strategy and Practice Conference 2014.
WSO2 is a Gold Sponsor of the API Strategy and Practice Conference, which will run March 26-28, 2014 at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Prabath Siriwardena will present the session, “Best Practices in Building an API Security Ecosystem,” which is part of the “Security and Testing” track that will run from 1:50–3:05 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, 2014. In the session, he will explore the significance of API security and its role in development projects. Prabath then will explain how to effectively protect, monitor and manage both public and private APIs. Finally, he will discuss various options accessible to test security and how to select the best of the many available.
Prabath Siriwardena, WSO2 director of security, is a member of the OASIS Identity Metasystem Interoperability (IMI) Technical Committee (TC), OASIS XACML TC, and OASIS Security Services (SAML) TC.

Panel: Enterprise APIs
Isabelle Mauny will join the session, “Enterprise APIs,” which will run from 11:15–11:45 a.m. on Friday, March 28, 2014. As part of this panel discussion, Isabelle will review how enterprises are combining API management with the cloud and mobile to create new connections across employees, customers and partners. She also will share key concepts and real-world examples of how these connected businesses are effectively securing, monitoring and managing their APIs.
Isabelle Mauny, WSO2 director of product management, heads the WSO2 Madrid office and focuses on enhancing the company’s middleware products, platforms and solutions to maximize customer value. Isabelle brings more than 18 years of technology, consulting and management experience in Java, application development, middleware, and service-oriented architecture (SOA), through her roles at IBM and Vordel.
Sold-Out API Workshop
In addition to the conference panel, Isabelle will conduct a workshop, “Successful development and deployment best practices to secure, monitor and manage APIs.” The sold-out workshop is being held from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26, 2014.

Demonstrating an Open Source Approach to API Management
As a Gold Sponsor, WSO2 will be demonstrating the capabilities of WSO2 API Manager, the first 100% open source API management product to combine easy, managed API access with full API governance and analysis. As the first API management product to offer an API Store, it lets IT organizations set up their own Apple or Google Marketplace-like store where developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs. Meanwhile it provides API publishers with complete API lifecycle governance—from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs—as well as analytics and metrics to support decision-making and enforce service-level agreement (SLA) policies.
WSO2 API Manager is built on the same WSO2 technology used by enterprises around the world, including a Global 1000 company that is handling more than 1 billion API calls per day. Providing full multi-tenancy, it runs directly on server hardware or in a virtualized environment, such as an Amazon or VMware cloud, bringing the efficiencies of multi-tenancy and self-service to on-premises deployments. Additionally, the cloud-ready WSO2 API Manager software can plug into the WSO2 platform as a service (PaaS) foundation to operate as part of a PaaS, adding cloud-native capabilities, such as elastic scaling, expanded self-service provisioning, metering, billing, and storage, among others.
