Software AG enhances API security capabilities through new partnerships with Cequence Security, Salt Security, and Noname Security 

Darmstadt, Germany - Software AG (Frankfurt MDAX: SOW) has entered into new solution partnerships with Cequence Security, Salt Security, and Noname Security. These steps will enhance its API security offering and make it easier for businesses to discover and remediate all of their APIs, from modern to legacy. With these broadened security capabilities, Software AG customers can quickly and easily address their most pressing API security needs: from securing vulnerabilities to automating the detection of and response to API attacks.

APIs are enabling a digital transformation for enterprises on a global scale. However, with the exponential growth of APIs also comes a range of security challenges which can potentially leave businesses vulnerable to threats. Organizations need a solution that is proactive against API and security vulnerabilities, provides visibility and discovery of all APIs, and that can stop API attacks in real-time. Software AG has partnered with Cequence Security, Salt Security, and Noname Security, to enhance its API security offering and provide a comprehensive approach to stopping attacks before they can cause any harm.

Together, these partners and Software AG help customers to:

  • Gain a complete view of an API attack surface, analyze API behavior and detect threats.
  • Establish critical runtime defenses for immediate protection using a combination of AI/ML algorithms and defined policies.
  • Prevent compliance and data governance violations with automated exposure analysis.
  • Identify risks and initiate remediation tasks enriched with actionable insights for development and security teams.

Suraj Kumar, General Manager of API, Integration and Microservices at Software AG, commented: “API security is a top priority for enterprises looking to protect their essential data and services from increasingly sophisticated attacks. And for good reason – APIs are the interface to the business, and many of them have already been affected by API security vulnerabilities. At Software AG, we’ve taken the crucial steps necessary by strengthening the security of our API Management solutions and augmented our security capabilities by partnering with three leading edge API security businesses to provide our customers with the best solution to protect their organizations.”

Software AG’s industry leading full lifecycle API Management platform continues to grow its ecosystem of partners that provide the highest level of API security, ensuring that, as API usage continues to grow, they can protect not only the organization, but its customers, data and bottom line in today’s fast-paced, digital economy.
