How does FireTail work?

FireTail takes a unique, hybrid approach to API security.

End-to-End API Security

Total security programs require a combination of tactics, techniques and procedures, similar to the attacker mindset. Understand your API security posture, external exposure, and start analyzing calls.

Development teams

No one wants to be the developer who builds the API that makes an entire application susceptible to attack, exploitation or data breach. But sometimes it's not easy to anticipate the attack vectors to cover. FireTail makes it easy to bake real-time security and protection into your application, while at the same time giving you visibility into performance monitoring and metrics.

FireTail works with leading companies worldwide to bring unprecedented API security solutions.

"Easy to deploy"

We chose the agentless solution for our existing API estate. FireTail worked with us to tweak the CloudFormation for our deployment model. Our API events then gave us a quick and complete picture of our APIs and helped us find and eliminate API security challenges.

"The next major attack surface"

APIs are the new port 80: an ubiquitous way organizations connect to the world. As such, securing APIs demands a novel, clean sheet of paper approach like Firetail.

"A modern API security approach"

We like how FireTail is built for teams who take a modern approach to security, measuring and identifying issues right where they potentially are, as well as giving confidence that our APIs are secured as we expect them to be. Their software is fully transparent and integrates with our existing services. Their team was very helpful and responsive in getting it deployed into our APIs.
