WSO2 And Ping Identity Partner To Provide Comprehensive, AI-Powered Cyber-Attack Protection For APIs

Mountain View, CA and Denver, CO, June 11 (Bernama) --

The proliferation of APIs catalyzed by digital transformation initiatives is viewed as a virtual goldmine by hackers, who are hijacking tokens, cookies and keys, as well as targeting weaknesses in individual APIs. And all too often, static security controls fail to stop these attacks. Now, WSO2 and Ping Identity have partnered to protect APIs against cyber-attacks by combining the artificial intelligence (AI) powered API cybersecurity of PingIntelligence for APIs with the robust policy-based controls in the open source WSO2 API Manager.

Through the partnership, WSO2 has developed an open source extension to communicate with the PingIntelligence API Security Enforcer (ASE) module, which can be deployed in the WSO2 API Gateway. As a result, WSO2 API Manager users can apply AI-based security analysis and threat blocking to their APIs along with static policy-based security controls.
