Noname Security, an API security platform, has announced it has partnered with Aflac, a leading provider of supplemental health insurance in the United States, to protect Aflac’s global estate of APIs. Noname Security provides both API discovery and API runtime protection to give Aflac full visibility into every type of API it has, as well as the types of sensitive data that traverse its APIs.
As part of the engagement, Aflac is also leveraging Noname’s automated AI and Machine Learning detection to conduct real-time traffic analysis. This provides contextual insights and heightened protection against the risk of data leakage, data tampering, data policy violations, suspicious behaviour and API security attacks.
Hackers have been exploiting APIs within financial services organisations at a rapid pace due to the immense value of their data and the high-profile nature of their clients. A report by research firm Gartner predicted this surge, stating that APIs would become the top attack vector for web applications in 2022. As a result, Aflac has turned to the Noname API Security Platform to proactively secure their cloud and on-premises environments.
“Noname Security is a visionary company, fundamentally reshaping how companies approach API security,” said DJ Goldsworthy, VP, Security Operations and Threat Management at Aflac. “It is continuing to innovate and solve new security challenges at a remarkable pace. It continually delivers because it listens to its customers and is invested in their success.”Click below to share this article
