KUALA LUMPUR, June 11 (Bernama) -- WSO2 and Ping Identity have partnered to protect APIs against cyber-attacks, offering organisations a complete solution for managing and protecting the APIs that drive their businesses.
The new open source extension integrates artificial intelligence (AI)-powered cyber-security of PingIntelligence for APIs with the robust, policy-based security controls in WSO2 API Manager.
Examples of API attacks that can be reported and blocked using the solution include attacks that use a valid user account to reverse engineer the API and breach other accounts to steal data, while looking like a normal user.
Others include attacks that use stolen token, cookies or API keys; attacks on login systems; remote application control; botnets scraping data; data ex-filtration; API-specific denial of service/distributed denial of service (DoS/DDoS) attacks, as well as an array of attacks coming from authenticated users.
Apart from that, on June 20, WSO2 and Ping Identity will co-host a webinar to discuss how enterprises can protect their API infrastructure from advanced attacks by leveraging the power of machine learning and AI in conjunction with API management.
