Our layered approach

At Ubika, API security is our top priority. We believe API security should be ubiquitous -by being an integrated part of your API planning, design, and development process. We provide the precise knowhow and set of WAAP solutions to help you leverage this API first approach. Ubika WAAP Gateway, Ubika WAAP Cloud and Ubika WAAP Container secure your public, private and shadow APIs simply and easily. The solutions provide both API threat protection and API access control.

API threat protection means detecting and blocking attacks on APIs. We do this by injecting the customer’s OpenAPI v3 file into the solution and enforcing it on the API traffic flow based on the elements described in the OpenAPI convention. In addition to this positive security model, we also enable a negative security model with some generic security engines, built on 20 years of expertise that safeguard you from vulnerability exploitation.

API access control provides the ability to use standards such as JSON web token (JWT) to control which applications and users can access your APIs.

Together, we offer a strong security strategy for your APIs.

Powerful results of our approach

Defense against major API breaches

and attacks like credential stuffing, account takeover, supply chain attacks and so on.

Safe communication across your legacy

hybrid and cloud native applications using microservices.

Shifting left

with a positive security model thanks to schema validation against the OpenAPI v3 file.

JSON web token

to control access to APIs, through authentication and authorization.

Data leakage prevention

with outgoing filtering capabilities to know what customers’ application send.

Rate limiting

to stop denial of service (DoS), and authentication flaws like brute force attacks.

Developers’ lives easier

Making developers’ lives easier by facilitating well documented APIs in simple formats (YAML/JSON).

Broad coverage

by protecting all API types like REST, SOAP, GraphQL and so on.

Detailed monitoring

of your API activity and threats via access logs and security logs.

Our API protection includes support for the OWASP API Security Top 10
