The term API security can mean many different things. For some, it incorporates visibility and management commonly found in API Gateways. For others, it revolves around preventing traditional application vulnerability exploits, typically delivered by WAFs and more recently API Security products.

An often-overlooked aspect of API security is the protection of your public facing APIs from automated bot attacks such as account takeovers, fake account creation and content scraping.

By targeting the API for their automated attack, a bad actor can leverage the same benefits of ease of use, efficiency and flexibility that APIs bring to the development community. The ubiquity and stateless nature of APIs means that protecting them from automated attacks requires a non-intrusive, intelligence-based approach.

In this session, product experts will use the Cequence Application Security Platform (ASP) management interface to demonstrate how the product uses machine learning and other techniques to protect your API-based application infrastructure from automated attacks. Attendees will gain an understanding of:

• Cequence product architecture and how it effectively bakes security into the application development workflow
• How Cequence provides complete visibility into public facing applications and automated threats
• Where Cequence fits in the API security provider spectrum
