API Security Done Right
Why you should choose 42Crunch for your API security requirements

The API Security Challenge

The flipside of the exponential adoption of APIs over the past decade has been the upsurge in the sheer volume of API attacks. By 2022, API attacks became the most-frequent attack vector, causing data breaches for enterprise web applications.  Yet despite years of investment in traditional application security solutions (WAF, SAST & DAST etc.) and more recently API gateways, the attacks continue to breach these defenses with increasing financial costs and brand reputational damage. APIs cannot be treated like applications and are subject to a different range of attacks and vulnerabilities as identified by the OWASP API Top 10. Ops and security teams lack a systematic way to spot, prevent and respond to API-based attacks.

Proactive, Not Reactive API Security

42Crunch’s founders recognize that the traditional approach to protecting APIs is not fit for purpose, nor capable of scaling to meet the forecasted growth of API usage. No longer can security rely on obscurity, manually configured rules, or hope that some anomaly detection can report an attack. By leveraging the OpenAPI Specification (OAS) as the de-facto standard to create an API contract which describes what the API will accept and what will be rejected a proactive approach can be adopted.

Focus on Boosting Productivity
& Reducing Risk

With over a million developers using 42Crunch, we are the #1 API security company in the market. Our API security platform helps developers code security earlier into the SDLC and frees security teams up to manage and guide the security policy enforcement process at every stage of the API lifecycle. By enabling a DevSecOps approach that automates security into the API workflow, enterprises can get secure code quickly out the door and into production.  Whether you have an API-first or an API-last strategy, we let you focus on boosting your innovation and strategic business outcomes, while we secure your APIs.
