SOA Software Extends API Security and Threat Protection Capabilities

SOA Software, an API Management and SOA Governance leader, today announced a major new release of its API Gateway with significantly upgraded security and threat protection capabilities to provide a comprehensive, hardened, and integrated API security solution. This release establishes a new standard for an integrated solution that combines security, integration, and mediation capabilities delivered both in the cloud and on-premise.

“Enterprises are rapidly shifting the way they do business by embracing new digital channels and opening their data and applications through APIs, both internally and externally,” said Alistair Farquharson, Chief Technology Officer at SOA Software. “With this new release, customers can securely extend their business processes and data for consumption as APIs by leveraging the API Gateway’s unique ability to mitigate threat risk across platforms, devices, and channels. They can now protect their APIs from sophisticated attacks, hacks and a myriad of other threats. API Security has never been so powerful and comprehensive, and yet easy to enforce.”

SOA Software’s API Gateway provides a comprehensive security and threat protection solution for enterprise APIs. It covers a wide range of use cases, including threats related to identity and access, message encryption, and compliance. The API Gateway streamlines development, management, and operation of APIs; enhancing security and regulatory compliance through authentication, authorization and audit capabilities. It is available in the cloud, on-premise, or as a virtual appliance for ease of installation and configuration.

The latest release of SOA Software’s API Gateway includes:

  • Threat Protection: Protect APIs against unintentional or intentional attacks and abuse including Denial-of-Service, SQL and JavaScript or XPath Query attacks. The API Gateway provides a content firewall that defends against malicious content like viruses, or malformed JSON or XML data structures.
  • Authentication and Authorization: Choose from a wide array of authentication schemes, standards and token types to ensure that only valid users and applications can access APIs. The API Gateway supports integration with leading single-sign-on and Identity and Access management providers
  • Transport and Message Level Security: Ensure the privacy of customers’ data in flight and at rest (a key requirement for PCI compliance). The API Gateway supports SSL & TLS with comprehensive key and certificate generation, distribution and management using built-in PKI services.
  • Advanced Scripting: Make changes easily and quickly without the need to rebuild or redeploy services or applications using common scripting languages, such as JavaScript. Powerful server-side scripting capabilities enable users to define additional customizations.
  • Wide Support of Security Standards: Make integration and security administration seamless. The API Gateway provides extensive support for standards like OAuth, SAML, SHA, LDAP, Kerberos, HMAC, X.509 certificates, WS-Security and SSL client authentication.
  • PCI DSS 2.0 Compliant: Satisfy PCI criteria for a compliant network. SOA Software’s PCI-compliant cloud offers an extensive, secure network coupled with 24/7 technical support to mitigate risks that can compromise sensitive data security.
