Airlock Gateway acts as a central reverse proxy for all HTTPS connections and provides the operational base for Airlock WAF and Airlock API to analyse and manage traffic moving between users and services. Attempted attacks on applications are blocked before they can reach the protected systems.
Airlock WAF provides
Airlock API re-uses the protecting mechanisms of a web application firewall and extends them to the API realm:
Modern applications and services shift the user interface functions into the end devices of the users, as Single-Page Application (SPA) in the browser or as native Smartphone App.
Communication with the servers thus focuses on the exchange of process data via APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). REST/JSON APIs, in particular, are currently in vogue. The new architecture exposes them to a large extent and they require the same level of protection against web attacks. Combine it with Airlock IAM to enrich your service with REST-based authentication and user management, API keys, rate limits & quotas.
Thanks to these innovative security functions, you can always stay ahead of attackers.
