API Security Challenge

Do You Need API Threat Prevention?

As you adopt an API-first approach to support customers, partners and internal operations, you need API-focused protection of your growing API portfolio from these security challenges.

Growing Attack Surface

The explosive growth in API use, both internal and public-facing, is leading to a rapidly changing API portfolio with a great number of them unmanaged – which means a sizable and expanding attack surface.

Focused API Protection

OWASP API Security Top-10 risks (Injections, BOLA, RCE, etc.) and other advanced API threats are on the rise – which requires a new API-first security approach to mitigate organizational risk.

Sensitive Data Protection

More organizations are pushing more sensitive data through their APIs, including PII, financial & health data, credentials and more – which increases the danger and impact of unintentional or malicious disclosure.

API Abuse Prevention

API bot, L7 DDoS and other automated behavioral attacks are increasing – which can lead to ATO & carding attacks, disrupt end-user experience and put business-critical services at risk.

How Wallarm Helps

Comprehensive API Protection

Wallarm API Threat Prevention automates API threat protection and API abuse prevention with no manual rules configuration and ultra-low latency & false positives.


Protect all your API assets regardless of protocol – from REST and SOAP to GraphQL, gRPC and WebSocket – from API-specific risks.


Identify, consolidate and prioritize unique API risks, from OWASP API Security Top-10 threats to API abuse, to optimize security team effectiveness and workload.


Assess and remediate any weaknesses which open you up to attack and automatically implement rules to protect against any further assaults.
