Jersey City NJ – 08-17-2020 (PRDistribution.com) — L7 Defense’s Ammune™ technology protects financial institutions from sophisticated API attacks, utilizing its state-of-the-art AI/ML-based Ammune technology and solution
L7 Defense, a leading provider of API security, announced today that it has joined the Financial Data Exchange (FDX), a nonprofit organization dedicated to unifying the financial industry around a common, interoperable, royalty-free standard for secure and convenient consumer and business access to their financial data.
APIs have become the primary interconnection mechanism to and from systems and applications enabling agility, flexibility, and interconnection. With the move to mobile platforms, the digital transformation, the Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) and the Open Banking revolution, APIs have become more essential than ever for the financial sector.
However, the growing popularity and use of APIs make them a popular target for threat actors, posing a security challenge to financial organizations. The fast-growing number of major security breaches leaves organizations and users exposed to new API-related attack vectors that render traditional security solutions obsolete. It is obvious that AI-based API protection is the optimal answer for addressing these security threats.
“L7 Defense’s Ammune™ technology protects financial institutions and other traditional and cloud-based operations from sophisticated API attacks, utilizing its state-of-the-art AI/ML-based Ammune technology and solution”, explained Doron Chema, CEO at L7 Defense. “With L7 Defense Ammune, the financial industry gains an extremely accurate, real-time API protection solution that operates in a highly complex landscape of legitimate and malicious internet traffic with a very high accuracy and detection rate.”

We are excited to welcome the company to the FDX ecosystem.”
