In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

- Positive security model built from OpenAPI specifications: Imperva API Security protects your APIs against critical security attacks with enforcement of a positive security model, built from your own API inventory. This helps to remove the burden of API specification validation on developers and the load on your application in runtime.

- In-depth protection against OWASP API Top 10: Imperva API Security also protects against the latest Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) API Security Top 10 as developers build microservices and APIs across different environments.

- Shift left by empowering developers with real-time API state for any change or abuse to optimize performance: Aligning with DevOps and other modern development practices, security teams need to offer agile quality assurance services as the code moves through the CI/CD pipeline. Imperva API Security provides API data (from correlated metrics to traces and logs) to work with developers in delivering products that delight customers.

Brief Overview

Whether it’s a known edge API, an unknown shadow API or internal API driving transactions on the backend, discovering APIs is essential for establishing a positive security model for API Security. Imperva API Security provides continuous discovery of your APIs. More importantly, Imperva offers contextual insights, ranging from detection of sensitive data such as personal identifiable information (PII) to classification of APIs based on data and coding risks.

Through automatic detection of API endpoints, Imperva API Security enables API visibility for security teams – without requiring development to publish APIs via OpenAPI or by adding resource-intensive workflow to their CI/CD processes – by providing full contextual data and tags and automatically determining risks around sensitive data. Security teams can incorporate a positive security model to protect their organization from API-based threats. Moreover, every time an API is updated, security teams can stay on top of the change, understand any new risks and incorporate changes, which leads to faster, more-secure software release cycles. Imperva API Security enables security teams to keep pace with innovation without impacting development velocity.

Imperva API Security also protects against the latest Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) API Security Top 10 as developers build microservices and APIs across different environments.
