Noname Security: The Complete API Security Platform

by Morgan Gerlak

Forgepoint is thrilled to announce our ongoing support of Noname Security! We believe Noname is bringing much-needed visibility to a rapidly growing security blind spot: Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

As the go-betweens connecting software to software, APIs have played a key role in software development for decades. APIs are used by developers in virtually every industry to build and connect applications quickly and at scale. Today, many of our favorite consumer and enterprise applications rely on APIs to deliver the myriad services we’ve all grown to depend on.

Unfortunately, the incessant pace of software development has left organizations of all sizes exposed to the risks posed by APIs — internal, external, and third-party. Several well-publicized API security vulnerabilities, including the most recent Log4Shell vulnerability, have left security teams scrambling. These problems aren’t going away either. By 2022, Gartner expects APIs to be the most-frequent attack vector.

Enter Noname, which protects APIs in real-time and detects vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they are exploited.

Coined the “D.A.R.T.” approach, Noname allows organizations to Discover, Analyze, Remediate, and Test all their APIs from a single platform. It offers deeper visibility and security than API Gateways and Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), without any agents or network modifications.

From stealth start-up to unicorn with over 200 employees, a global partner program, and multiple Fortune 500 customers, it’s hard to believe how far Noname has come in 12-months. That is until you meet the company’s co-founders, Oz Golan and Shay Levi, who have demonstrated remarkable ambition, foresight, and commitment to their goal of securing the world’s APIs.

We look forward to working alongside our friends at Georgian, Lightspeed, Insight, and Cyberstarts to support Noname as it becomes the market leader in API security. Exciting times ahead!
