At Traceable, we’ve been keeping very busy in the last couple of months. During this time, we launched a number of exciting new offerings and key features with the continued aim to help our customers to have the best API Security solution in the industry.

Free API Security

In August, we launched the industry’s first free API Security solution.  Traceable’s free API security solution enables developers and security operations teams to get started in improving the API security of their applications without the need for budgetary approval. Despite knowing that API security needs to be a critical component of developing their applications, DevOps teams often remain handicapped by inadequate tools and budgets to properly address their needs. At Traceable, we want to enable developers and security teams to adopt world-class API Security for their application, regardless of budget.

Key highlights: 

  • Free Tier access forever 
  • Up to 50 API Endpoints, API Discovery, Insights, Risks, and a lot more 
  • Free and Team tiers in addition to Enterprise tier
  • Free 15 day trial of Team tier
