Ping Identity Wins 2018 API Award for AI-Driven API Cybersecurity Solution


PingIntelligence for APIs Recognized for Innovation in API Security

API World 2018

Ping Identity Booth #318

, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced
that it has been honored with the API World 2018 Award in the "Best in
API Security" category. Its AI-driven cybersecurity solution, PingIntelligence
for APIs
, brings an increased level of security and intelligence
into how APIs are accessed and used.

The 2018 API Awards celebrate technical innovation, adoption and
reception in the API and microservices industry. To support the judging
process, the program leverages an advisory board made up of seven
industry veterans. Out of hundreds of nominations, these expert judges
selected PingIntelligence for APIs based on three criteria: reputation
among the developer and engineering community, recent visibility and
awareness, and product innovation.

"APIs are increasingly used by hackers to breach organizations and steal
data. API infrastructures need strong cyber protection now," said
Bernard Harguindeguy, SVP, Identity Intelligence, Ping Identity. "With
our PingIntelligence for APIs solution, organizations of all sizes have
the ability to track the use of their APIs and automatically block
identified API threats."

PingIntelligence for APIs uses artificial intelligence to deliver a high
level of visibility and cyber protection to any API infrastructure. This
applies to internal- and external-facing APIs and for environments with
or without API gateways. The solution helps:

  • Autodiscover all active APIs and associated URLs so that none
    are forgotten or overlooked.
  • Deliver deep visibility into all API activity at scale for
    forensic or compliance reporting, all actions on APIs are captured and
    consolidated for easy access.
  • Identify and automatically block cyber attacks that use APIs to
    compromise data or gain control, with no predefined rules or attack
    signatures, unlike today's analytical tools with no API awareness.
  • Prevent hackers from reconnecting after termination when
    attackers are identified, enforcement nodes automatically block access
    across all sites and clouds.

"Developers and engineers are becoming key influencers in their
companies, because the technologies they use continue to matter more to
their operations. Ping Identity is empowering developers to have a
greater impact on security of products and IT," said Geoff Domoracki,
founder of DevNetwork, producer of API World and the 2018 API Awards.

Ping will receive its award at the API
World 2018
awards ceremony on September 10, 2018 in San Jose. To
