For Operations

Securely and confidently deploy your APIs by protecting them from design to production

Secure. Deploy. Protect.

The 42Crunch Platform ensures the security of an API from design to deployment, and has a low latency micro API firewall that is the fastest on the market. Operations teams can get detailed insight about attacks on APIs in production – and protect against threats – without impacting performance.

Ultra-low latency API firewall, deployable in proxy and sidecar mode

Through a fully automated platform, 42Crunch extends security beyond the edge of the enterprise to each individual microservice, protecting them with an ultra-low latency micro API firewall that can be deployed at scale.

Kubernetes-native deployment and management

42Crunch API firewall is merely 20 MB in size and when deployed in sidecar proxy mode in Kubernetes pods enforces API security with sub-millisecond overhead. This eliminates the manual process of writing and maintaining individual API security policies and enforces a zero-trust security architecture.

360 degree view of all APIs across the organization 

42Crunch gives everyone in the company a common security language and shared understanding of the APIs that the company has, their current state, security levels, production protection status, and any required further security improvements. It also integrates with standard SIEMs and security monitoring systems to provide real-time vulnerability alerts. 

Deploy Anywhere!

You can use our API firewall to equally protect north-south and east-west traffic. Thanks to its low footprint, it can be deployed at scale on any container orchestrator such as Kubernetes, Amazon ECS or Red Hat OpenShift(®).

Our runtime is fully compatible with existing API management solutions or API gateways and with microservices-based architectures. We support the sidecar proxy and gateway deployment models.
