Ping Identity Wins 2018 API Award for AI-Driven API Cybersecurity Solution
API World 2018
Ping Identity Booth #318
PingIntelligence for APIs Recognized for Innovation in API Security
Denver — September 4, 2018 — Ping Identity, 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 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:
"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 learn more about the PingIntelligence for APIs solution, attendees can also visit Ping Identity at Booth #318 or www.pingidentity.com.
