APIDefender is the first real-time API security solution that provides 360° always-on protection against malicious attacks targeted at APIs and applications. Cloud scale. Purpose-built. Learn more…
APIs deliver strategic value for the future of business whether an online commerce enterprise pursues internal APIs, open web APIs, or B2B APIs. APIDefender secures and protects web services and REST APIs against malicious attacks, including Denial of Service (DoS), code injection and other threats with built-in security and Web Application Firewall (WAF) capabilities.
APIDefender is well-suited to be a frontline API security gateway for cloud API Providers with large communities of developers/consumers. APIDefender is multi-tenant, highly scalable, and deployable in the public or private cloud.
On the Internet of Things, data flows from devices to the cloud, from the cloud to back-end systems, from users back to their devices — all enabled by APIs. APIDefender can monitor traffic to guard against malicious man in the middle API attacks, protecting sensitive information, from connected cars, connected homes and other Internet-connected “things.”
With APIDefender deployed, devops personnel can understand activity-level API usage within apps, detect non-compliant behavior and anomalies to ensure usage compliance.
