Cequence Security Intros API Sentinel
June 18, 2020
Security noted the general availability of Cequence API Sentinel, a
runtime API security solution that delivers continuous run-time API
visibility, shadow API discovery, risk analysis, and conformance
assessment. With the addition of API Sentinel, Cequence delivers the
industry’s only multi-threat API security solution that unifies
visibility, vulnerability protection, bot mitigation, and business logic
abuse prevention into a single platform.
Key capabilities include:
Runtime API Catalog and Usage Analysis: Automatically discovers all APIs, including managed and shadow APIs. Analyzes API usage and access, including geo-location, IP addresses and organizations. Provides a view into headers, parameters, and response codes with flexible time-based filtering.
Schema Non-conformance Detection: Performs a runtime comparison of your inventoried APIs against an OpenAPI specification to uncover and flag API endpoints, headers, parameters and response codes as non-conformant. Discovered out-of-spec elements can be addressed by development, effectively mitigating security risks before they reach production.
Built to help organizations
understand the risk posture of all their APIs so they can avoid costly
data loss, fraud, and API abuse, API Sentinel answers critical questions
that most organizations can’t answer, including:
What is our overall API risk exposure? Do we have API vulnerabilities that are being leveraged by attackers?
Are APIs exposing sensitive data or PII which could put us out of compliance?
typically spend more time focused on active attacks and breaches than
they do assessing their code and environments for vulnerabilities and
security gaps which are often hiding in plain sight. In most cases, they
simply lack tools that can provide that level of visibility for APIs,”
said Ed Amoroso, chief executive officer of TAG Cyber. “API Sentinel
fills a critical need so that security and development can collaborate
to secure and protect today’s API-driven applications.”
