Security and Identity Challenge - KPN API Store developer portal

This event has passed.

Do you have innovative security solutions available via APIs? Do you think you can be of added value to KPN’s API customers and tackle their challenges? And do you want to partner up with KPN? Come pitch your solutions to the KPN API Store team, partners and other users.

The KPN API Store is looking for the next level API solutions in the (cyber) security domain. As technology changes rapidly and security becomes ever more important, we are looking for innovative, efficient, flexible, customer friendly, and sustainable security solutions that customers can use via APIs.

Security has become increasingly important in almost any company nowadays as companies build their assets and core operations more and more on digital technology. This combined with the increasing threats of security breaches by the likes of ransomware, bot attacks, hacks, fraud, etc. makes security a top priority. This requires smart solutions to keep up with the increasing security demands at an ever evolving speed, while maintaining flexibility and high-quality.
