Wib partners with SecureIT to boost API Security across Nordics
By Gloria Methri
Wib, the Israel-based cybersecurity start-up specialising in API security has partnered with SecureIT to expand its reach across the Nordics. Based in Iceland, SecureIT provides cybersecurity compliance, consulting, and managed services to international financial institutions.
The partnership with SecureIT gives users access to Wib’s API security platform and recently launched API PenTesting-as-a-Service (PTaaS) capabilities. This would help organisations across the region identify API vulnerabilities, defend against API-based attacks, and meet API-centric regulatory compliance standards such as PCI DSS.
“Building out our channel ecosystem is a strategic priority for Wib as we look to scale our go-to-market presence across key international territories,” said Ran Ohayon, CRO at Wib. “SecureIT has a trusted brand and strong reputation across the Nordics region with a dynamic team of qualified and experienced security and compliance professionals. Its consultative-led approach, strong compliance expertise, and managed services capabilities made them the ideal partner for us, and we are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Wib PTaaS solution combined with its API security platform, provides visibility, automatic inventory, auto-generated API documentation, and simulated attacks against test and/or production systems.
Wib can automate inventory and API change management; identify rogue, zombie, and shadow APIs and analyse business risk and impact, helping organisations to reduce and harden their API attack surface.
Magnús Birgisson, CEO at SecureIT said, “APIs are critical in driving the modern applications and innovative new web services many organisations use today, but many are undetected, unmanaged and unprotected, creating vulnerability and risk. Our mission is to deliver cyber resilience to our customers across the region and our partnership with Wib is a great addition to our portfolio and will help us achieve this mission.”
