Within the report, Cequence Security is recognized by Gartner as a Sample Vendor in both the API Threat Protection and Bot Management segments. We believe that this recognition confirms our vision that a comprehensive API security platform MUST be able to:

  • Discover: Create a runtime inventory of all your APIs and categorize them based on risks.
  • Detect: Assess APIs for configuration and coding errors that lead to vulnerabilities and compliance violations.
  • Defend: Natively mitigate automated attacks, business logic abuse and exploits in real-time.

Cequence is the leading provider of Unified API Protection that covers all stages of the API Protection lifecycle – Discover, Detect, and Defend, natively without relying on any third-party solutions.
