Data Theorem Named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner 2020 “Cool Vendors in API Strategy” Report

Company Offers API Security Solutions that Automate Continuous API Security Analysis and Vulnerability Inspection


Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced it has been recognized in the 2020 list of Cool Vendors in the “Cool Vendors in API Strategy”1 report published by Gartner.

Gartner Cool Vendor is designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services. The report states, “APIs have become such integral parts of mission-critical business systems, application architectures and customer-facing user experiences that an API platform is a very common part of a digital transformation…Such growth creates implementation challenges for application leaders responsible for API strategies, particularly in the areas of design, governance and security. Gartner’s research continues to show that lack of skills, standards, roles, tooling and security remain top concerns for API strategies. The most successful application leaders exploit new technologies and solutions to prevent or mitigate risks and to optimize architectures and governance processes to fuel innovation. They also continue to invest in raising their API strategy maturity across all dimensions.”<sup class="note">1</sup>

Data Theorem’s API security solutions address security concerns such as Shadow APIs, Serverless Applications, and API Gateway cross-check validation by conducting continuous security assessments on API authentication, authorization, encryption, availability, cloud storage, databases, serverless functions, and policy compliance. The API security solutions support Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure to discover modern APIs and to enumerate the specification using standards such as Swagger and Open API 3.0.

“We consider our inclusion in the ‘Cool Vendors in API Security’ report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to enable customers to protect themselves against data breaches by discovering and securing all of their APIs across their mobile, web, and multi-cloud environments,” said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. “We continue to innovate while we execute on our product roadmap to meet growing global demand for Data Theorem’s API and application security solutions.”
