HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GuidePoint Security, a cybersecurity solutions leader enabling organizations to make smarter decisions and minimize risk, announced today that Cequence Security, the leading provider of Unified API Protection (UAP), has joined its Emerging Cyber Vendor Program. Through this partnership, Cequence Security will leverage GuidePoint’s federal expertise across sales and marketing, operations, engineering and procurement to expand their federal footprint. As part of this program, the Cequence Unified API Protection solution will soon be available under GuidePoint’s GSA Multiple Award Schedule Contract #GS-35F-508CA.
“While APIs are critical to enabling business, they have become a primary attack surface that must be protected,” said Jim Quarantillo, Federal Partner, GuidePoint Security. “Simply putting API gateways and WAFs in place to manage known APIs and known threats does not solve the API security issues to keep Government Agency data safe. A Unified API Protection solution that discovers, detects and defends against all API vulnerabilities, risks and threats is required.”
“Cequence Security is the only solution that protects organizations from every type of attack on the OWASP API Security Top 10, OWASP Web Application Security Top 10 and OWASP Automated Threat list,” said Mark Azad, Chief Revenue Officer, Cequence Security. “Through our partnership with GuidePoint Security, government agencies will have a complete solution for addressing all API risks.”
With the Cequence Unified API Protection (UAP) solution, customers can address every phase of their API protection lifecycle to defend APIs from attackers and eliminate unknown and unmitigated API security risks that can lead to API breaches, data loss, fraud, and business disruption. Security teams deploying the UAP solution achieve continuous protection of their complete API risk surface, enabling their organizations to reap the competitive and business advantages of ubiquitous API connectivity securely while meeting regulatory compliance.
