Cybrella, Neosec Partner To Protect API-Driven Business Applications


Cybrella, a leading provider of specialised cybersecurity professional services, announced a partnership with Neosec to provide AI-based API security as part of the company’s services.

The new partnership enables Cybrella’s customers to discover all APIs in use across their organisation, analyse the behaviour of those APIs, and prevent abuse or cyberthreats that may be exploiting them.

Modern applications are essentially all API-driven, and they frequently expose confidential and proprietary information through these North-south APIs as the company communicates with partners, suppliers, and other users. This presents a new attack surface that puts businesses at risk in a new and fundamentally different way. Conventional application security techniques are largely irrelevant against API exploits and abuses.

However, Neosec’s unique and innovative AI-based API Security Platform is an ideal solution to help businesses address these new API-based threats. Explicitly designed to discover and secure all APIs used across the organisation without agents or sensors, Neosec gives security professionals visibility and control over their API infrastructure — preventing abuses and cyberattacks.

Organisations that contract with Cybrella for CISO as a Service, application security, or other cybersecurity services can now benefit from Neosec’s innovative AI-based API security. This new partnership adds the following advantages for Cybrella customers:

  • API Discovery: Locate API usage across the entire enterprise, including those previously unknown.
  • Pinpoint Vulnerabilities: Identify those API’s within the organisation that have vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, or that exhibit other risks.
  • Fraud Reduction: Find unauthorised use or abuse of financial and other transactions.
  • Prevent Data Leakage: Detect data exfiltration and regulatory compliance violations.
  • Improved Customer Experience: Improve partner and customer experiences through better API performance and a reduction in errors.
  • Cloud-Based and Seamless Integration: An open and extensible SaaS solution that layers on top of your enterprise core security stack to provide a total integrated solution.
  • Implemented and Managed by Cybrella’s Experts: Cybrella’s Application Security and CISO as Service packages remove the complexities of installation and ongoing administration.

Application Security Services and Advisory CISO Services

Cybrella provides the deep security skill sets that organisations typically lack and engages with existing staff to properly assess security needs, develop appropriate policies, and clearly define responsibilities.

The company works closely with its clients and educates its employees in developing and maintaining secure applications, including the use of APIs. In addition to Application Security Services, Cybrella’s Advisory CISO Service provides customers who lack in-house expertise with a dedicated CISO that operates as an integral part of their organisation.

The newly added API protection available through the Neosec partnership greatly contributes to both services. The Neosec platform adds an entirely new and powerful dimension to application security. It provides CISOs and other network defenders with the visibility required to secure all of their API based interactions.

“In addition to performance and privacy, the behavioural analytics that’s required for effective API security requires a vast store of data. We are impressed with the Neosec platform and how it provides this and all the necessary heavy lifting”, says Alon Mantsur, CEO of Cybrella. “We are very pleased and excited to provide these added capabilities to our clients.”

Giora Engel, Co-founder and CEO of Neosec commented, “We are enthusiastic about this industry-first partnership with Cybrella that goes beyond providing the product and includes additional layers of security consulting services and managed services. From API discovery to behavioural detection and response, I’m confident that Neosec, combined with Cybrella’s vast experience in cybersecurity, will provide security teams with the tools to accelerate customers’ digital transformation journey while reducing the risk and abuse.”
