Pingintelligence upgrade supports additional API gateways

Denver, Co

Ping Identity has made several significant updates to Pingintelligence for APIs, its AI-powered API cyber security solution.

These latest enhancements include an AI-based cloud trial, the ability to detect new types of attacks, support for Splunk environments, and additional integration with API gateways.

The lack of visibility into how APIs are consumed is becoming commonplace in today’s enterprise environment. In fact, a recent Ping Identity survey conducted among security and IT professionals reveals that 45% of respondents aren’t confident in their organisation’s ability to detect whether a bad actor is accessing their APIs.

The survery also showed that fifty-one percent are not even assured their security team knows about all of the APIs that exist in the organisation. This data illustrates that the people trusted with securing APIs don’t have enough visibility into their activity to identify abuses and attacks, which has contributed to why recent API attacks were not discovered for months.

In this latest product update of Pingintelligence for APIs, three important capabilities make protecting APIs, and the data and applications they expose, even more achievable.  Firstly, it offers an AI-based cloud trial for evaluation; it provides stronger security by detecting new types of attacks; and it broadens security coverage by integrating with more API gateways.

“Ping is helping some of the world’s largest organisations protect against an ever-diversifying landscape of cyber security threats, including those against API infrastructures. Many of the recent API abuses and attacks took months and years to detect, further reinforcing the need for IT leaders to build API-security focused teams,” shared Bernard Harguindeguy, CTO, Ping Identity. “As evidenced by the new advancements to our Pingintelligence for APIs solution, we’re committed to delivering even more leading-edge technology to protect our customers’ API infrastructures against these emerging threats.”
