The Cequence Unified API Protection solution integrates with MuleSoft’s Anypoint™ Platform, complementing their native security with full API protection lifecycle coverage and eliminating any reliance on third-party tools such as a Web Application Firewall (WAF).
Holistic API discovery complements the foundational (i.e., ISO27001) security the MuleSoft API Gateway provides by giving security teams complete visibility into known and unknown APIs. Once unmanaged, unknown APIs are discovered they can be routed through MuleSoft’s API Gateway to ensure security and governance policy consistency.
Strengthen Compliance and Data Governance Controls
Cequence extends static data tokenization provided by MuleSoft with proactive API analysis that helps data governance teams find and remediate sensitive data handling coding errors that can lead to compliance and data governance violations.
Going beyond basic perimeter controls (i.e., WAF, OWASP API Top 10) that the MuleSoft API Gateway provides, Cequence uses ML-based analysis that leverages a threat database with billions of records and fingerprints to detect and continually track sophisticated API attacks as they retool to evade detection.
Real-time responses to API attacks range from blocking and rate limiting to HTTP header insertion and deception, all executed in real-time, per policy or per app, without reliance on third-party integrations.
