TIBCO partners with Ping Identity to tackle API cybersecurity

TIBCO Software, API integration, management and analytics specialists, announced a new partnership with cloud-based identity management software provider Ping Identity.

The two companies will combine their respective TIBCO Cloud Mashery and PingIntelligence for APIs solutions in order to help firms protect themselves against API threats to customers.

Rajeev Kozhikkattathodi, vice president, product management and strategy, TIBCO, commented on API products being the “building blocks of an organisation’s digital strategy” and that cyber attacks are not only more frequent but also often more sophisticated.

Kozhikkattathodi explained: “Few enterprises take a standardised approach across their company to ensure the security of data and other digital assets, which are exposed via APIs.”

“A number of highly publicised breaches resulted 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 that utilises modern tech such as artificial intelligence.

Inclusion of PingIntelligence for APIs is expected compliment TIBCO’s solution by extending and enhancing API security with AI-driven threat mitigation and decoy API deception. 

“Companies’ most 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,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, chief technical officer, Ping Identity. 

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