Signal Sciences offers a WAF that can protect your web application based on security signatures. 

Traceable AI offers both web and API security protection in one integrated platform. Cybercriminals are shifting their attack campaigns to include both web and API applications looking for the weakest link to break past the security protection of your organization and steal your sensitive data. Traceable security platform provides both OWASP Top 10 web and OWASP Top API protection.

Traceable AI is the leader in API security and enables comprehensive protection for APIs including the Log4j/Log4Shell exploit.

Consider the following points when evaluating Signal Sciences

Just Web Protection

Cybercriminals have expanded their attack campaigns to both Web and API applications, looking for an easy way to breach your security defenses and steal your sensitive data. Without a solid defense against web and API attacks,  you end up with a hole in your security protection, allowing cybercriminals to gain an easy foothold in your organization.

Traceable AI offers both API and Web protection for mission-critical applications blocking cyber attack campaigns that target both API and web applications, seeking your sensitive data. Explore how Signal Sciences detects and mitigates API attacks.

Real API Security

APIs expose business logic, and attackers often exploit your business logic to abuse your APIs.  UnderstandingAPI context and transaction/data flows are crucial to detecting and defending against business logic attacks.  Traceable AI understands an application’s business logic.  Purpose-built to detect and block business logic attacks by analyzing transactions and data flow – helping to thwart sophisticated API attacks that target your mission-critical application’s sensitive data. Suggest evaluating how to block business logic attacks such as BOLA.

API parameter definition

Traceable provides a native capability to automatically discover and identify API parameter definitions without the need to upload an OpenAPI parameter file. Traceable is able to generate your API parameter file and then changes made to your APIs, ensuring your API Security is always up-to-date.

Sensitive Data Tracking

Maintaining an API catalog that highlights sensitive data, like PII, PCI, etc exposure is a critical step in mitigating data breaches. Traceable has the ability to pinpoint your sensitive data and identify and visualize each API flow across your applications, allowing you to identify insecure or vulnerable APIs that could lead to a devastating data breach.  Consider evaluating how Signal Sciences will detect and prevent unauthorized sensitive data from flowing through your APIs.

Security Data Lake

Historical data about attempted API attacks  is a crucial need for security teams to improve their security posture over time. Traceable is built on a security data lake that enables EDR-like capabilities that enterprise security teams have been using for years. Customers can perform threat hunting, post-forensic analysis and track sensitive data flows across their API-driven applications.
