From your bank account to your email, APIs power your digital experiences. According to a survey by RapidAPI, 96% of developers are using more APIs in 2021 than in 2020. Are you planning on building internal APIs to be used just within your organization or external APIs for your mobile app? Whatever your API goals are, you need an API gateway to handle incoming traffic. API gateway deployments are a leading use case for NGINX Plus, our commercially supported offering based on NGINX Open Source.

In this webinar we cover what APIs and API gateways are, and how to configure and secure your API gateways using NGINX Plus and NGINX App Protect. We demo how to deploy NGINX Plus as an API gateway, and show how to secure the API gateway by using encrypted JSON Web Tokens (JWE) and importing an OpenAPI spec to NGINX App Protect. In the Q&A we answer your questions about deploying and securing your API gateway.
