Protection Across the New Attack Surface.

APIs present a substantial challenge to Application Security by extending the attack surface through distributed services and data. Cloudentity keeps your applications secure by providing continuous, and contextual authorization with enforcement across any environment. 

By 2022, API abuses will move from an infrequent to the most-frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise web applications.

API Security: What You Need to Do to Protect Your APIs (2019)

Continuous, Transactional Authorization

Traditional tools, like API Gateways, provide limited monitoring and lack the critical context needed to properly secure modern applications. Distributed services require continuous and adaptive authorization to remain protected against modern threats.

Cloudentity provides Authorization-as-Code that can be easily embedded into the DevOps pipeline and managed using simple drag-and-drop editors, making it easy to deploy and administer.

Gain Visibility Into Your API Traffic

Development teams are continuously deploying new APIs into your ecosystem, making access control challenging especially across hybrid-cloud environments. 

Cloudentity’s platform provides automatic API detection, getting immediate insight into what APIs exist across your applications and API gateways regardless of environment.

Protect From OWASP API Threats

OWASP’s list of API Threats highlight why it’s important to extend identity to your APIs and secure your resources and data from attack. Cloudentity’s platform provides continuous and contextual authorization to ensure that every API transaction is properly protected and that use is governed by your API policies. 

Watch our on-demand webinar and learn how Cloudentity and Signal Sciences have partnered to keep you protected from the OWASP Top Ten.

Enforce API Policies Across Any Environment

Ensuring your APIs are secure means enforcing strict access control policies across your application, regardless of environment. Centralizing enforcement through existing gateways can leave APIs unprotected when communicating between services (East/West Traffic). Cloudentity’s platform provides a distributed enforcement model, providing enforcement of API access control as close to the service as possible.
