Cequence and HPE GreenLake: API Security for Cloud Native Applications

February 6, 2024 | by Jeff Harrell

Cequence API Security for HPE GreenLake

In the rapidly evolving landscape of cloud native infrastructure, APIs stand as crucial conduits, powering everything from online shopping to mobile applications. However, this increased connectivity introduces significant security risks, with APIs often operating without sufficient oversight. Many of the recent data breaches making headlines were due to APIs that were improperly secured.

As digital transformation is propelled by the shift towards cloud-native applications and microservices, the complexity and volume of APIs expand, exacerbating security challenges. This “Wild West” of APIs, difficult to track and secure, raises pressing questions for security leaders about the extent, risks, and current security status of their API landscapes.

Cequence Unified API Protection (UAP)

The Cequence Unified API Protection (UAP) platform enables organizations to answer the three most important questions about their APIs:

  • How many APIs do I have and where are they in my infrastructure?
  • What risks do they introduce?
  • Am I protected from attacks on my applications and APIs?

The UAP platform is an ideal solution for defending cloud-native systems against attacks, targeted abuse, and fraud.

Protecting Your Digital Workloads on HPE GreenLake

Cequence and HPE have partnered to deliver unified API protection for HPE GreenLake customers, protecting their APIs as well as supporting Cequence deployment on HPE GreenLake Private Cloud Enterprise (PCE) instances. HPE GreenLake is a leading enterprise platform optimized for private cloud deployments in customer data centers which naturally rely heavily on APIs for inter-application communication. These APIs are often ephemeral, created and eliminated as needed. This can create a very large number of APIs in cloud-native environments that must be protected by a solution designed for massive scale.

Cequence is the first API security vendor on the HPE GreenLake Marketplace, and has been validated on HPE GreenLake PCE, and customers can rest assured that their APIs are protected throughout the complete API lifecycle.
