Protecting API Infrastructures - An AI-Powered Solution from Ping Identity & WSO2

Thursday, June 20, 2019

Hackers often refer to APIs as digital buffets - purpose built to provide direct access to data and services. These nefarious actors know about all of your APIs - they are either well documented or they have reverse engineered the API making them a prime target for misuse and abuse.

Hackers are bypassing foundational API security tools, such as gateways and WAFs, by hijacking tokens, cookies, and keys or targeting weaknesses in individual APIs -- resulting in data theft, service disruption, account takeover, and loss of reputation.

Ping Identity and WSO2 are partnering to enhance your API security posture and protect your API infrastructure from advanced attacks by leveraging the power of machine learning and AI. Join the webinar to learn:

  • The greatest threats to APIs today
  • The ways hackers are going around traditional security tools
  • How you can use AI to protect your APIs
  • How the combined solution accelerates the detection and blocking of cyberattacks
