Akamai acquires Neosec

Prevent threats using your own response playbooks

API threats are different and responses must be reinvented–they must be context-aware. Neosec provides the ability to create customized conditional response playbooks that improve your security and DevOps processes and work with your existing technology.

Integrated responses using your existing workflow

Responses to API threats are different from traditional in-line application security products that rely on blocks, rate limits, or CAPTCHAs.

Neosec gives you building blocks to create your own incident response playbooks that integrate with your specific workflows, such as setting a policy on your API Gateway, or opening a ticket for your developers. Neosec is out-of-band, works with your existing technologies, and helps unite security and DevOps teams protect APIs.


Powerful response engine

Build your own automated actions using the powerful Neosec response engine. Responses are customized to your organization. The choice is yours.

  • Notify security team members via email
  • Open a JIRA ticket for a developer
  • Set a new policy in your API gateway. 
  • Trigger a webhook and send alerts to your SIEM

Neosec has multiple API gateway integrations. Take a look at our Kong Integration. And Neosec’s open platform allows you to automatically create the responses you want to protect your business.  


Conditional threat prevention responses

For many security products, a single response is the only available action. But data-rich solutions, like Neosec, allow you to specify granular conditions to trigger preventative actions.

Imagine being able to create a response that labels an important partner as ‘VIP’. If that partner receives a data scraping alert, automatically raise the severity to critical, and notify security operations.

Neosec enables security teams to proactively identify the most damaging threats before they negatively impact the business.


Build your own response playbooks

Security teams interact with the Neosec platform via open APIs and can create their own incident response playbooks. The open and extensible platform is not a black box and allows each organization to access its entire dataset. This data allows your team to enhance its security programs, solve specific use cases, and protect your business from unique threats.
