See All Your API traffic in One View
From multiple cloud environments and data centers to different gateways and business units, enterprises have APIs everywhere. With API sprawl, it becomes difficult to see how each API is used and accessed, fostering an environment where shadow APIs can live without the security team knowing. This can delay or prevent an organization from detecting vulnerabilities that could lead to costly breaches, abuse of APIs or performance issues.
With PingIntelligence for APIs, you can bring all API traffic data together in a single view of activity across all gateways, clouds and data centers. You can use built-in dashboards to centralize API traffic monitoring to get detailed information on what APIs are deployed in your organization and how each API is accessed and used. You can also leverage your API traffic data to generate detailed reports to demonstrate compliance—or for forensic investigations.
Know Good vs. Bad Traffic
API activity is on the rise with nearly 83% of network traffic attributed to APIs, making it important to identify good and bad traffic. Of course, bad traffic doesn’t have to be a hacker causing a breach. It could be a partner abusing access, an employee not complying with company policy when accessing data, or a misconfiguration or bug in an API resulting in abnormal behavior.
PingIntelligence for APIs uses artificial intelligence to learn how each API is accessed to determine what is the normal or good API behavior. If abnormal activity is detected, its can alert security teams and automatically block the bad traffic to protect your APIs.
With both inline and sideband deployment options available, your IT team can deploy PingIntelligence for APIs however it fits best in your enterprise architecture. To provide AI-powered attack detection and monitoring without requiring network or infrastructure modifications, you can integrate with PingIntelligence for APIs in sideband deployment with PingAccess or your API gateway from Akana, Axway, Apigee, CA, AWS, Azure, IBM, Kong, MuleSoft, WS02 and more. Or, use inline deployment to have PingIntelligence for APIs as a high-performance reverse proxy to protect APIs deployed on API gateways, PingAccess or APIs deployed directly on application servers.
