PingIntelligence for APIs
Protect Internal and External APIs
PingIntelligence for APIs applies AI models and big data analytics to continuously inspect and report on all API activity, for both internal and external APIs. By applying a combination of AI and user behavioral analytics, PingIntelligence for APIs can automatically discover anomalous traffic behavior across an enterprise’s API environment. PingIntelligence for APIs was purpose-built to recognize and respond to rapidly changing, dynamic attacks unique to APIs without writing policies, rules or code.
PingIntelligence for APIs provides flexible deployment options to work with your existing API infrastructure with both inline and sideband options, allowing IT to choose the model appropriate for their environment. The inline model offers a high-performance reverse proxy that can protect any number of API gateways and cloud APIs implemented directly on application servers. Alternatively, sideband deployment with an API gateway or PingAccess provides the same AI-powered attack detection and comprehensive insight as the inline option, without requiring network or infrastructure modifications. In this deployment mode, PingIntelligence for APIs is simply “dropped-in” on the side of the gateway or PingAccess—outside of the data path—to monitor the traffic, identify abnormal behaviors and threats, and communicate when blocking is required.

Integrations for Your Environment
PingIntelligence for APIs provides deep insight into API activity to protect both internal and external APIs, whether on-premises, in clouds or in hybrid cloud implementations. It supports a wide variety of API gateways with sideband integrations with PingAccess, as well as leading API gateway platforms, including those from Amazon (AWS API Gateway), Google/Apigee, MuleSoft, IBM (DataPower/API Connect), Axway, NGINX, CA/Broadcom (Layer 7), WSO2 and Azure API Gateway. When deployed inline, PingIntelligence for APIs supports existing API gateway platforms, including RedHat, TIBCO, Software AG and others. Additionally, PingIntelligence for APIs supports APIs implemented directly on app servers such as Node.JS, WebLogic, Tomcat and WebSphere. With deployment options including virtual machines, Docker containers and bare metal environments, PingIntelligence for APIs supports automated installation and management scripts across common datacenter and cloud environments such as AWS and Azure
