Data Theorem, a leading provider of modern application security, and a competitor in the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, has been recognized in the 2020 list of Cool Vendors in the “Cool Vendors in API Strategy”1 report published by Gartner.
Gartner Cool Vendor is designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services.
The report states, “APIs have become such integral parts of mission-critical business systems, application architectures and customer-facing user experiences that an API platform is a very common part of a digital transformation…Such growth creates implementation challenges for application leaders responsible for API strategies, particularly in the areas of design, governance and security.”
“Gartner’s research continues to show that lack of skills, standards, roles, tooling and security remain top concerns for API strategies.”
“The most successful application leaders exploit new technologies and solutions to prevent or mitigate risks and to optimize architectures and governance processes to fuel innovation.”
“They also continue to invest in raising their API strategy maturity across all dimensions.”1
According to Data Theorem, they believe Gartner selected the company as a ‘Cool Vendor’ because it offers technology and service that is:
Enables enterprises to identify their entire attack surface:
Data Theorem allows for continuous discovery and inspection of your mobile, web, cloud applications and APIs, but also auto-remediates vulnerabilities to ensure a data breach does not occur.
Has a business impact, not just security that checks a box:
Data Theorem reveals your vulnerable assets in minutes, saving your business time and money.
Data Theorem empowers business leaders to remain compliant and protect customer data 24/7.
API Security is a new category for attackers and defenders of critical applications:
Data Theorem was one of the first security companies to deliver an analyzer engine focused on discovering “shadow APIs” which has become one of the most intriguing and elusive attack surfaces for businesses to identify and protect.
This concern of API-based data losses is amplified with the growing number of 100 million+ record data breaches from APIs on cloud-native applications.
Data Theorem’s API security solutions address security concerns such as Shadow APIs, Serverless Applications, and API Gateway cross-check validation by conducting continuous security assessments on API authentication, authorization, encryption, availability, cloud storage, databases, serverless functions, and policy compliance.
The API security solutions support Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure to discover modern APIs and to enumerate the specification using standards such as Swagger and Open API 3.0.
“We consider our inclusion in the ‘Cool Vendors in API Security’ report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to enable customers to protect themselves against data breaches by discovering and securing all of their APIs across their mobile, web, and multi-cloud environments,” explains Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO.
“We continue to innovate while we execute on our product roadmap to meet growing global demand for Data Theorem’s API and application security solutions.”
(Take closer look at Data Theorem’s continuous automated API security solutions: API Discover finds new APIs, any changes to known APIs, and other cloud services related to these APIs within customers’ public cloud infrastructure environments. API Inspect uncovers potential vulnerabilities in the authentication and encryption layers of internet-facing APIs based on their respective definitions and API specification.
