Protect your APIs from modern cyberattacks
APIs (Application Programmable Interface) are the cornerstone of digital transformations for many enterprises. Whether developing applications in new cloud-native microservice and serverless architectures, automating business-to-business processes or providing a back-end for mobile applications, APIs are rising in significance to the enterprise. Unfortunately, cybercriminals have seen this shifting towards an API-centric world and are discovering new attack vectors as fast as the API growth itself. This creates the critical need for enterprises to adopt new security measures that can better protect their APIs and all things digital.
Imperva API Security
Through automatic detection of API endpoints, Imperva API Security enables comprehensive API visibility for security teams – without requiring development to publish APIs via OpenAPI or by adding resource-intensive workflow to their CI/CD processes – by providing full contextual data and tags and automatically determining risks around sensitive data. Security teams can incorporate a positive security model to protect their organization from API-based threats. Moreover, every time an API is updated , security teams can stay on top of the change, understand any new risks and incorporate changes, which leads to faster, more-secure software release cycles. Imperva API Security enables security teams to keep pace with innovation without impacting development velocity.
Comprehensive edge API discovery and risk classification
Whether it’s a known edge API , an unknown shadow API or internal API driving transactions on the backend, discovering APIs is essential for establishing a positive security model for API Security. Imperva API Security provides continuous discovery of your APIs. More importantly, Imperva offers contextual insights, ranging from detection of sensitive data such as personal identifiable information (PII) to classification of APIs based on data and coding risks.
In-depth protection against OWASP API Top 10
Imperva protects you from the latest Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) API Security Top 10 as your developers build microservices and APIs across different environments.
Positive security model enforces correct behavior
Protect your APIs against critical security attacks enforcement of a positive security model, built from your own API inventory. This helps to remove the burden of API specification validation on developers and the load on your application in runtime.
Shift left by empowering developers with real-time API state
Aligning with DevOps and other modern development practices, security teams need to offer agile quality assurance services as the code moves through the CI/CD pipeline. API Security provides API data (from correlated metrics to traces and logs) to work with developers in delivering products that delight customers.
Flexible deployment model without slowing down development
