Discover APIs and prevent data leakage
Automatically discover API endpoints that are connected to your applications, and allowlist and monitor for anomalous behavior.
Modern applications are constantly evolving, with increased dependencies on APIs. These API endpoints increase an application’s attack surface area and introduce new risks and vulnerabilities that current security tools struggle to mitigate.
The volume of APIs is rapidly increasing, with new vulnerabilities emerging that risk exposing sensitive data. Security teams are struggling to manage and identify exponential numbers of endpoints and connections across their infrastructure.
Developers often deploy public APIs, bypassing internally mandated security processes and procedures.
Orgs with CI/CD pipelines deploy new code and APIs swiftly, perhaps overlooking security requirements.
Developers often unintentionally expose sensitive datasets that may be leaked accidentally.
Permissions need to be set to prevent one user from accessing another user’s data.
Rapid deployment via SaaS with simple API discovery leading to operational savings.
Points of presence (PoPs) in API security deliver high speed, scale, and API protection.
Observe API security and networking metrics from a single, centralized user interface.
Distributed Cloud API Security provides discovery and deep insights from use of AI/ML. Block API attacks in real time and eliminate vulnerabilities at their source. The SaaS-based portal enables users to manage and go deep for threat analytics, forensics, and troubleshooting of modern applications.
Detect and block Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) API Top 10 attacks in real time by using automatic detection at the development and production layer.
You can automatically create and enforce a positive security model from your own OpenAPI specifications.
Detect all APIs across your applications, including rogue and shadow APIs.
Integrate security into the API lifecycle process via CI/CD tools or leading API management vendors.
Continuous machine learning monitors all traffic, allowing API security to predict and block suspicious activity.
Distributed infrastructure across clouds and edge sites provides a consistent experience.
Automatically generate policies based on App-to-App and API-to-API patterns.
Protect existing workloads in one or more clouds or in on-premises environments.
Mesh Kubernetes controller and multi-layer security in and across clusters.
Discover API endpoints with Swagger import and export capabilities.
Distributed Cloud Services can be delivered to apps running on any platform, on any public/private cloud. Connect and secure apps running in VMs, containers, bare metal, or serverless.
Supports multiple service discovery protocols simultaneously. Consul, Kubernetes, and DNS work out of the box. Istio or Linkerd service mesh can integrate with a Distributed Cloud Services ingress/egress gateway.
F5’s native Terraform provider, vesctl CLI tool, and public APIs deliver to the automation needs of app teams. Support for tools like Opsgenie or Slack for alerting, and Splunk or Datadog for SIEM, simplify life for DevOps and SecOps teams.
Distributed Cloud Services deliver application management, networking, and security services closer to workloads and can be deployed in public/private clouds, on-prem data centers, and edge sites with centralized management via a SaaS-based console.
Manage and protect application workloads hosted in AWS, Azure, and GCP.
Manage and protect application workloads from any of the points of presence (PoPs) on the F5 global network.
Manage and protect applications at the data center and edge sites.
