Today, APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) connect tens of thousands of web and cloud applications, microservices, mobile and IoT devices, enabling seamless machine-to-machine communication. And their number is skyrocketing. APIs don’t just exchange Facebook messages anymore. An enormous amount of sensitive information in terms of personal identifiers, financial data, medical records or corporate secrets is also now transferred via these interfaces.
APIs have become direct shortcuts to the heart of your organization. As a result, the proliferation of API infrastructures has brought with it huge security challenges:
For security-aware service providers and application developers who expose sensitive data via APIs, our API-security solution provides a highly flexible approach to protect enterprises from API-based threats.
In contrast to API management vendors where security is just a checkbox feature, our API security gateway focuses exclusively on API security, offering a killer combination of validation, transformation and insight of API traffic. Thanks to the flexible architecture, your organization can implement custom API security policies without compromise.
Balasys’s consultancy services will help you identify your API security challenges and assemble the right solution set. We can customize our implementation services to meet your exact requirements. After implementation, our training services will boost the efficiency of your operations staff. Should you need further assistance, we can help you with operations support.
We continuously develop our API security concept to create a highly competitive and future-proof solution. On the top of our existing product functionality, we’re planning to add traffic transformation, authentication and malware detection capabilities. Our development plans include, but are not limited to:
Anonymization & data masking
Format and protocol conversion (e.g. json2xml)
