Most enterprises today rely on customers accessing their applications to conduct daily business. These enterprises know by now that application programming interfaces (APIs) are becoming more common than ever before to enable communication between applications and end users. Even though they are working behind the scenes, APIs are ubiquitous – they help to deliver sports updates, post online messages, order food – enabling everything online. To stay competitive, businesses need to publicly expose and rely on API calls to applications that serve business-enabling data to consumers.
Imperva API Security is a new product within Imperva’s cloud application security suite. API Security allows users to see security events per API endpoint and automatically creates and enforces a positive security model layer from the customer’s Open API specification document.
Scalability and flexibility are essential to API delivery. Red Hat 3scale API Management delivers on performance with continuous availability. For those of you already pushing your API calls through Red Hat, you know just how important it is to push millions of calls back and forth with minimum latency and no round trips between your infrastructure. With Imperva’s latest launch of API Security to its Cloud Application Security portfolio, customers of both Imperva and Red Hat can benefit from a more cohesive solution toward managing, publishing and securing their APIs.
Imperva is a Red Hat Ready Partner and Red Hat, an Imperva Technology Alliance partner. Red Hat 3scale API Management customers can now layer up to the next level of security features for their APIs without compromising on business agility. Imperva’s API security offering is able to accomplish this because of its simple integration with Red Hat 3scale API Management. Every addition or change to the APIs on 3scale will immediately and automatically update the positive security model for said APIs. Additionally, security teams gain visibility to all APIs that are externally exposed as well as to specific threats per API endpoint.
To integrate Red Hat 3scale API Management easily with Imperva API Security, Imperva provides an open source tool, which is hosted in GitHub and managed by the open source community. For additional information, see https://github.com/imperva/cloud-api-security-integration
