Ping Identity’s API Cybersecurity Solution Wins Two More Industry Awards

March 18, 2019 GMT

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 18, 2019--Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced that it has received the DeveloperWeek 2019 Devies Award and the Info Security Global Excellence Award. Both accolades recognize the PingIntelligence for APIs solution for its innovative and effective approach to securing API infrastructures against cyberattacks.


PingIntelligence for APIs was launched less than a year ago and is already regarded as a premier solution for organizations seeking to protect their data and system against API-based breaches. It utilizes artificial intelligence to provide deep insight into how each API is used or misused, and delivers extensive information for compliance, audit and forensic reports. The solution is also designed to provide comprehensive threat detection and blocking across a broad range of attacks—from hackers without credentials probing for vulnerabilities to API-takeover attacks that use reverse engineering techniques to steal data.

2019 Devies Award

Ping’s API cybersecurity solution received the 2019 Devies Award for “Best Innovation in Security and Networking.” Sponsored by DeveloperWeek, this awards program recognizes the excellence in developer tools, products and technology. PingIntelligence for APIs was selected for its innovation, adoption and reception in the developer technology industry and by the developer community.

Info Security Global Excellence Award

The solution also received the Gold for “Best API Management and Security Product” in the 2019 Info Security Product Guide Global Excellence Awards. The honor recognizes cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced products, solutions and services that are setting a higher bar for others in all areas of security and technologies.

These distinctions are in addition to the two previous recognitions the company’s PingIntelligence for APIs solution has received: the IT Security Award and the API World Award for “Best in API Security.”

“We’re excited to see the industry placing more emphasis on the protection of API infrastructures against increasing the cyber threats,” said Bernard Harguindeguy, CTO, Ping Identity. “These awards recognize the high value our products deliver to help DevOps and IT security leaders deploy effective API-focused security defenses.”
