TIBCO recently announced that they were partnering with Ping Identity to provide businesses with a smarter security solution that would integrate seamlessly with their digital transformation. Now, TIBCO Cloud Mashery®, TIBCO’s cloud-native API management platform, offers integration for the PingIntelligence AI-powered API security platform. 

API Attacks: A Growing Threat

APIs have become foundational for the success of digital businesses. So it should come as no surprise that as API adoption and activity continue to rise, so, in turn, have attacks against the broadening API landscape. These attacks are also becoming more sophisticated, often circumventing conventional security measures which solely rely on authentication based on a set of issued credentials.

Businesses in industries like banking and finance as well as travel and telecommunications need to have APIs in a variety of environments and platforms, which makes it extremely difficult to monitor how each API is being accessed or used, creating an opportunity for a potential security breach. 

As a result, these businesses have become a frequent target for API-specific security attacks, which is why TIBCO and Ping Identity have partnered together to deliver an advanced API cybersecurity solution.

Smarter Together: Integrated, AI-Powered Security with TIBCO and Ping

Unlike traditional rule-based API security, PingIntelligence is able to leverage threat detection and mitigation using artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) models.

This means that the AI/ML algorithms recognize API behavioral patterns to determine what “normal” traffic looks like and can differentiate it from “abnormal” traffic. A hacker might not even be the cause of the abnormal behavior, but it could alert you to a different security threat, such as an employee not complying with company policy regarding data access or a bug or configuration issue in the API that could become a vulnerability if left unchecked. Detecting and mitigating these abnormalities is simply not possible with conventional security methods.

Keeping Your Data Secure and Compliant

On top of the comprehensive analytics solutions already provided by TIBCO Cloud Mashery, this integration also gives users a unified view of API activity across their entire organization for centralized monitoring. It can also be used to generate detailed reports for demonstrating compliance and for use in an investigation, should one be required.

The integration is also compliant with data privacy regulations and the shared responsibility model for cloud security, which recommends secure encrypted messages transfer between TIBCO Cloud Mashery and PingIntelligence.
