CloudVector Enterprise Edition

Discover, Monitor, Secure All APIs

Autonomous API Visibility and Protection

CloudVector solution enables a fully autonomous - automated and continuously adaptive - three step process to API Security: Discover/Monitor/Protect.

The CloudVector API Inspection Modules (AIM) uses fully automated microsensor modules to enable the continuous discovery, and risk assessments of all APIs. 

Deep API Risk Trackers (DART) apply AI/ML to auto-generate and update policies based on customer-specific API blueprints to monitor for API risks and real-time detection of reconnaissance attempts.

The CloudVector API Response Modules (ARM) enforce targeted policies against API abuse in real-time. 


A controller manages a network of aims and arms and implements the live API catalog and policy engine to discover/monitor/secure all APIs. API discovery goes beyond simple API specification audit by leveraging live API call captures to produce a live API catalog with API blueprints. This enables autonomous policies for aims to closely monitor API calls in production, and for arms to take targeted response actions when anomalies are detected.

Live API Catalog

Industry’s first and only fully auto-discovery of API specs without any dependency on specs manually created by developers. Auto-discovery allows continuous up-to-date API blue-prints

Autonomous Policies

Always up-to-date API blueprints allow advance, targeted policies to be generated/updated without human intervention. Autonomous policies capable of detecting and protecting against deep API data level abuses help protect against API level data breaches.

Zero Impact and Flexible Deployment

CloudVector is purpose-built for modern application architectures, and is deployed with zero impact to inline performance, with no changes required to applications or DevOps processes.
