”The key to security - especially in the world of microservices and very agile development - is to integrate security directly into the DevOps process,” he says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at the recent RSA Conference 2019 in Singapore, Declas discusses:

  • How API security has evolved;
  • API security and the role DevSecOps plays;
  • What a micro-API Kubernetes firewall does.

Declas, founder and CEO of 42 Crunch, is an entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience in the enterprise software industry. He formerly worked at Forum Systems, Vordel (acquired by Axway) and Intel.
