Teamleader launches API for its CRM, invoicing and project planning platform. Security firm Cyber Squared launches Threat Connect API. Plus: getting ready for APIs, WSO2 technical webinar, and 7 new APIs.

Teamleader API Serves up Productivity Data

Belgium-based Teamleader is a cloud productivity platform that provides CRM, project planning, notes, opportunities, invoices, subscriptions, products, tickets, time tracking, and tasks. The Teamleader API brings this user data to third party apps.

From quotation creation to managing agendas, Teamleader aims to encompass all the productivity tools related to CRM. The API documentation is divided by subject, covering each of the categories listed above, from CRM to project milestones. An account is required for an authkey.

Cyber Squared Launches its Threat Connect API

Cyber Squared, recently in the news over negotiating a contract with Health and Human Services to protect the personal data involved in Obamacare, has launched its Threat Connect API. This premium offering is, like so much of security, all about speed: how fast can clients develop an understanding of cyber threats they are facing? To do that, they have to be able to assess everything from real-time data indicators to integrating their own knowledge and leverage crowd sourced intelligence.

According to the press release, accessing information fast is only part of the battle. Another critical dimension is accessing the right information, leaping past data that is less relevant:

"Through the use of community sourced tags, confidence ratings, and attributes, the ThreatConnect™ API delivers more integrated products and lets users make more intelligent decisions based on their data. The watchlist capability is very useful as users can get updates on only what’s new about a particular threat, which means they don’t get bogged down in details and information they are already aware of."

Another important feature of security data is context--information has to be embedded in context to be meaningful. To that end, the API allows users to query indicators and their associations, query groups and associations, query any data from a common tag and more.
