Who Are We
42Crunch was founded by veterans of the security and API management industry who recognized that the traditional approach to protecting APIs was simply not scalable. APIs are the core building block of every enterprise’s digital strategy and are driving internet traffic growth1, yet they are also the number one attack surface for hackers2.
Traditional application security solutions such as web application firewalls (WAF) and static and dynamic testing tools (SAST/DAST) are not designed to secure APIs nor even are API gateways. The time is now right for a new approach to API security.
42Crunch was founded to make security practitioners' and developers' lives easier by enabling a collaborative DevSecOps approach to API security. Application Security, API architects, Developers, QA, and Operations – get a shared view of API security, its shared definition, and a shared understanding of what needs to be done to enable security at scale.
The 42Crunch API security platform enables security to enforce security policies at design and runtime and empowers developers to detect security issues early, with no impact to productivity.
