Since the early days of web APIs, API developers and security practitioners have leveraged Ping Identity’s thought leadership and tools. Ping has been a contributor to the OAuth standard for nearly a decade and was an early implementer of the OAuth authorization server. To this day, Ping team members are helping to define key API security standards such as JWT, token revocation, token introspection, dynamic client registration, financial-grade APIs and myriad other relevant specifications.
Ping Identity’s intelligent identity solutions include an industry-leading OAuth server, strong authentication, MFA, API access control, API-based consent and privacy enforcement, and API cybersecurity based on AI.
Issuing and managing OAuth tokens is a core concern of API security. The top OAuth authorization server technology for both protocol support and market presence, PingFederate enables token issuing to your API consumers. Leveraging a rich set of standard and custom flows, PingFederate helps you delivers a great experience for your end users. It’s also used by the API server to validate tokens and retrieve attributes that are used in API access control decisions. Learn more about PingFederate
With its out-of-box OAuth policies for token/scope validation and attribute-based access control rules definition, PingAccess lets you define and enforce API access control rules. For advanced rule definition, you can feed scripts into this rules engine. Deployed as a sidecar or inline, PingAccess works across your API silos. Learn more about PingAccess
Attached to your APIs inline or via an API gateway, PingAuthorize provides policy-based, fine-grained access controls for attribute-by-attribute data protection and filtering, ideal for regulatory compliance and consent management. It has a graphical user interface for business users to collaboratively build, test and enforce access control policies to data across user directories and APIs. It also provides a centralized solution to authorize and filter API calls in real time—a huge benefit to managing and enforcing customer consent and data privacy. Learn more about PingAuthorize
PingIntelligence for APIs
PingIntelligence for APIs analyzes your API traffic metadata to discover and protect your APIs. It also gives you rich insights into your API traffic by associating API traffic metadata with identity information to deliver a single pane of glass from which you can monitor your API activities across all gateways, data centers and clouds. This allows you to report on API traffic across silos, broken down across users, tokens, IP addresses, cookies, etc. PingIntelligence for APIs uses machine learning to build models on your API traffic and spot deviations that point to anomalies and attacks with no rules to write and maintain. These models track a rich set of API traffic metadata including transaction rates, error rates, sequences, user identity, resources being accessed, action takens, volumes, latencies, network location and more. Through its out-of-box integrations with all common API gateways and load-balancers, PingIntelligence for APIs can identify API design flaws and bugs in production, flag partners that are misusing or abusing your APIs, and detect and block hackers working on your APIs to breach your organization.
