TIBCO and Ping Identity partner on API security solution

01 Jul 2019

Integration, API management, and analytics company TIBCO has announced an official partnership with identity solutions provider Ping Identity.

Together, TIBCOCloud Mashery and the PingIntelligence for APIs solution bring AI-powered protection against new API threats to customers. 

TIBCO Cloud Mashery is a solution for digital leaders, IT leaders, and chief information security officers to invest in API-led, cloud-native transformation for their organisations, with API security at its heart.

“API products are the building blocks of an organisation’s digital strategy and, as such, cyber-attacks on API programs are more prevalent and sophisticated.

“Few enterprises, however, take a standardised approach across their company to ensure the security of data and other digital assets, which are exposed via APIs,” says TIBCO product management and strategy vice president Rajeev Kozhikkattathodi.

“A number of highly publicised breaches occurred recently. As the API attack surface continues to expand due to the strategic value of APIs, a new generation of threats will similarly continue to emerge. We’re excited to partner with Ping Identity to improve security measures for enterprises with sensitive corporate data.”

TIBCO Cloud Mashery offers API security features such as advanced authentication, bot detection, white and blacklisting, and access control to protect APIs from dangerous API consumers.

PingIntelligence for APIs complements the solution by extending API security with AI-driven threat mitigation and decoy API deception.

These two solutions aim to work together to provide an API security offering, especially for businesses that are investing in new digital initiatives, such as banks adopting open banking to deliver a better customer experience. 

“Companies' sensitive digital assets, including their customer data, are increasingly made accessible via APIs, and protecting this infrastructure from abuses and cyber-attacks must be the top priority for CISOs and CIOs everywhere,” says Ping Identity chief technical officer Bernard Harguindeguy.

“Our partnership with TIBCO brings AI-powered protection to boost the security of API infrastructures and help organisations secure their data and applications behind APIs.

Ping Identity envisions a digital world powered by intelligent identity.

It aims to help enterprises achieve zero trust identity-defined security and personalised, streamlined user experiences. The Ping Intelligent Identity Platform provides customers, employees and partners with access to cloud, mobile, SaaS and on-premises applications and APIs, while also managing identity and profile data at scale.

Ping Identity provides options to extend hybrid IT environments and accelerate digital business initiatives with multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, access management, intelligent API security, directory and data governance capabilities.

TIBCO aims to fuel digital business by enabling better decisions and faster actions through the TIBCO Connected Intelligence Cloud.

From APIs and systems to devices and people, it interconnects everything, captures data in real time wherever it is and augments the intelligence of businesses through analytical insights.
