A New, Modern Approach to Successfully Protect APIs

Unified API Protection is different from fragmented or incomplete API security offerings because it’s a methodology designed to account for multiple types of risk, offer autonomous discovery and more importantly, provide native inline resolution without relying on third parties. These solutions are based on three functional pillars:

  • Discover: New API Spyder, an agentless API attack surface discovery tool that provides security teams with an attacker’s view of their publicly exposed APIs and resources.

  • Detect: API Sentinel enables security teams to discover and track their APIs; assess and remediate risks to eliminate coding errors that can lead to data loss and business disruption.

  • Defend: Bot Defense enables security teams to protect their APIs from the full range of automated API attacks and eliminate bot-induced business impacts such as infrastructure cost overruns, site outages, skewed sales analytics, and brand damage from lost, frustrated customers.
