Q: Why is API security important in the automotive and smart mobility ecosystem?

A: In the interconnected world of smart mobility, APIs are critical for revenue generation, innovation, and powering advanced services. However, their complex context and business logic pose a security challenge, requiring more advanced solutions than traditional tools like Web Application Firewalls (WAFs).

Q: How does Upstream approach API security?

A: Leveraging its vast experience in protecting millions of vehicles globally, Upstream has developed a unique API security solution. Its approach is based on a ‘Digital Twin’ concept, providing valuable context by capturing and analyzing the behavior of an asset over time. This helps in understanding what a typical API transaction should look like and in identifying any deviations.

Q: What role does machine learning and AI play in Upstream’s solution?

A: Upstream uses machine learning and AI to identify anomalies or ‘weird’ patterns in API transactions that may indicate a potential security breach. This allows the detection of even the most complex, ambiguous scenarios that might warrant investigation.
