Cequence Security Strengthens Runtime API Protections in API Sentinel
SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cequence Security, a leading API security vendor, announced today the release of API Sentinel 2.0, adding powerful features that will help organizations strengthen their runtime API protections by "shielding the right" - a necessary step that is often minimized while implementing "shift left" DevOps initiatives. These new capabilities solve the biggest API security problems most organizations face today, including:
Cequence API Sentinel 2.0, which is now generally available to all customers, helps security and development teams protect against a wide range of threats including those highlighted in the OWASP API Security Top 10 with new API Inventory and Sensitive Data Dashboards to accurately discover and track all their external and internal APIs. Rounding out the new features are new custom and predefined risk assessment capabilities that enable proactive API monitoring and categorization.
"With APIs playing an ever-bigger role in the development process, enterprises need a way to immediately identify all APIs, assess the security risks and protect against them," said Larry Link, CEO of Cequence Security. "We've worked closely with our Fortune 500 and Service Provider customers, such as those in the financial services space, to ensure that we're providing an API security solution that can accelerate API security maturity levels by driving the critical collaboration needed to support tens of thousands of APIs."
