AmiViz today announced a partnership with a leading API security solution provider, Cequence Security, for the GCC countries. Cequence has been onboarded to the AmiViz B2B Platform and now its Unified API Protection platform can be accessed by resellers through the AmiViz mobile app.
This new partnership will introduce the power of Cequence’s Unified API Protection to enterprises in the GCC region. The UAP platform is the only offering that addresses all phases of the API protection lifecycle to defend an enterprise’s 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.
Ilyas Mohammed, COO at AmiViz said “Over the past few years, the increase in use of APIs have resulted a surge in the demand for Unified API Protection solutions in the region. Today we are excited to partner with Cequence Security, the largest API Security vendor, to provide the best-in-class UAP platform to our channel partners across GCC.”
He added, “This partnership enables us to provide our partners with a world-class API Protection solution that will help them demonstrate to their customers how API security risks can be mitigated with ease.”
Cequence Security’s unique approach to uncovering and preventing API threats that can lead to fraud and data loss has resulted in the company protecting $9 trillion in assets and more than two billion user accounts worldwide in Fortune / Global 500 companies and other large organizations.
“APIs are a growing attack surface that unfortunately are being more frequently exploited by attackers. Cequence is uniquely addressing this API security problem that many organizations continue to grapple with, through the only solution on the market that covers the full API security lifecycle,” said Andy Mills, VP of EMEA for Cequence. “Cequence is excited to expand our presence in the GCC region through our partnership with AmiViz to help enterprises stay ahead of emerging and evolving API threats.”
AmiViz and Cequence Security will work closely to roll out several new channel initiatives to enhance collaboration and drive greater customer value. Both companies will conduct technical and sales workshops, support proof of concept, and extend pre-sales, implementation, and first-line support to their partners across the region.
