The use of multiple, single-purpose integration solutions and disparate security solutions not only makes API management difficult by fulfilling individual use cases, it increases the attack surface, raises organization risk and virtually kills response times when accessing your valuable data.
The aapi platform avoids these pitfalls by infusing the world's most advanced and flexible API threat protection and detection system directly into the easiest and most complete integration platform around. Nothing to add on. Simple configuration. No additional "hops". No performance degradation. Smarter with AI and CTI. Integrate easily and securely and protect every transaction.
Deployed anywhere, you can even integrate aapi directly to existing integration or security solutions for a clean migration away from legacy technologies.
Cyber threats have become so sophisticated, and they evolve and change so rapidly, the most efficient way to identify them is via advanced statistical analysis of big data.
aapi uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics to analyze data acquired from its worldwide network of gateways to identify threats and vulnerabilities and predict new attacks. Evaluating the behavior of each and every transaction, aapi adapts in real time to place advanced controls around your data to mitigate risk.
In a world where a simple, single factor (API Key or OAuth2 Token) grants access to APIs, aapi adds real-time adaptive security to better understand transactional risk and to secure programmatic access to data.
aapi controls transaction behavior based on combinations of contextual checks such as geolocation (ie. Only allow access from countries x, y, and z) or proprietary threat intelligence and content checks (ie. Does the header or body contain x information) to ensure your APIs act according to the security policies you have defined.
aapi can even combine context from all of the identities involved with the transaction (user identity, device identity, and application identity) for next generation risk analysis and adaptive responses within each and every API request.
Using a standardized description format, aapi uses the OpenApi Specification to understand exactly how APIs should work. Understanding the nuances of each and every API allows the platform to identify every transaction for potential abuse.
When requests and responses differ from defined methods, parameters, endpoints and data types, flags are set and the aapi defenses kick in.
aapi limits threat from both internal and external actors.
Acting as the integration medium, aapi limits insider threat by performing a key exchange and to ensure that your Ops teams hold master keys to data Dev get their own keys to access data and Sec can manage and monitor access.
aapi limits external threats by using proprietary cyber threat intelligence (CTI). Understanding where threats come from, the behaviors they exhibit, and the data they want, aapi simply limits your risk from threats such as bots, bad actors, and nation states better than any other API solution.
With an enterprise account, you can even add your proprietary intelligence into the mix!
Bad actors attack API vulnerabilities by exploiting data parameters, including URL, query parameters, HTTP headers, and/or post content that is presented to the API in an attempt to manipulate a system by providing it with inputs that exploit behavior of applications and the infrastructure that supports them (such as databases).
In addition, communication based attacks attempt to intercept legitimate transactions and exploit unsigned and/or unencrypted data being sent between the client and the server. They can reveal confidential information (such as personal data), alter a transaction in flight, or even replay legitimate transactions.
aapi utilizes the strongest and most flexible TLS encryption options available to ensure your data communications are secure, while offering the deep packet scanning you need to ensure parameter attacks are effectively mitigated.
