Cato API Capabilities
Secure API Access with Complete Audit Trail
Ensuring secure API access is critical to protecting sensitive data and configuration changes within your Cato account. All access to a specific account via Cato’s API is secured with an access token that only administrators can generate through the Cato Management Application. Multiple tokens can be created allowing the ability to restrict usage to specific, authorized source IP addresses. Any configuration changes made using the API are included in Cato’s comprehensive audit trail, indicating the access token that was used and what changes were made.
API Playground for Development and Testing
Cato’s GraphQL playground provides a synthetic environment to test and validate code before production use. Customers can connect the playground to their account with an API key to test and refine queries for specific data extraction. Cato’s API playground can be used as a learning asset, or troubleshooting and testing tool, and helps reduce the risk of bug as well as integration and development time.
Leverage Cato Data in Enterprise Platforms and Processes
Cato’s API creates limitless possibilities for leveraging granular and normalized Cato generated data in your business. Cato’s API uses GraphQL for flexible and efficient operation that reduces the number of API calls and returns the exact data requested. This enables your organization to efficiently extract information from Cato’s data lake for use in SIEM solutions, migration to archival storage, or integration with other enterprise workflows and processes. Custom integrations can be created for both security and networking data, including account status, sites and user data, and down to specific events and actions.
Automate and Orchestrate Your Cato Environment
Cato provides a mutation API to enable account management at scale. Administrators can build custom scripts or integrate with third-party products to automate bulk configuration changes to sites, hosts, routing, and other configuration elements. Using automation eliminates repetitive error-prone manual work, and reduces administrative workload.
Ready to Use Cato API Integrations with 3rd Party Products
Cato API is already in used in multiple integrations with third-party products including Arctic Wolf, Axonius, Google Chronicle, Rapid7, Sumo Logic, and more. These integrations allow organizations to realize maximum value across multiple vendor investments without having to develop them on their own. Additional integrations are continuously being developed based on the needs of our customers.
