Cequence Unified API Protection Platform
The Cequence Unified API Protection (UAP) platform enables security teams to manage through the entire API protection lifecycle that includes support for discover, comply, and protect stages that defend against attackers and eliminates unknown and unmitigated API security risks. The Cequence UAP platform provides three integral components, API Spyder, API Sentinel, and API Spartan that target every stage of the API protection lifecycle, ensuring that customers have one platform to address all their API security issues.
API Spyder (Discover)
Cequence UAP starts with first understanding your API attack surface through API Spyder which discovers your external and internal APIs across managed and unmanaged API infrastructure. This allows security teams to ensure that unmanaged APIs are brought under management to confirm they do not have security risks and have the proper API protection enabled. Once deployed, API Spyder provides a continuous mechanism to surface unmanaged shadow APIs that are newly implemented by internal departments but never notify the security team of their existence.
API Sentinel (Comply)
API Sentinel, a security posture management product enables security teams and development teams to work collaboratively to directly address surfaced security issues within your runtime APIs that could potentially lead to an API exploit. It can discover whether your APIs conform to Open API specifications, adhere to security and governance best practices, and test your pre-production APIs for vulnerabilities. API Sentinel lays the groundwork to ensure that you are fully aware of the risks inherent in your API applications and enables you to remediate critical security issues before they are exploited by an attacker.
API Spartan (Protect)
Finally, API Spartan provides the final layer of defense, offering real-time detection and mitigation of API threats. API Spartan is powered by CQAI, an ML-based analytics engine that can determine in real-time if application transactions are from malicious or legitimate end users. It can mitigate a wide variety of cyberattacks that include online fraud, business logic attacks, exploits, automated bot activity, and OWASP API Top 10 attacks.
Cequence Security was previously known as Cequence ASP, Cequence Unified API Protection Platform.
