Revenera implemented a new cloud-based architecture for reliability and scalability, and introduced Wallarm API security to better protect end customers and internal operations.
Revenera embarked on a modernization effort which involved moving from data center to AWS, eliminating multiple points of entry to applications with Kong API Gateway, and introducing API security to protect customers and operations. Their main motivations were improving productivity and security, especially reducing threats hitting applications directly which required a lot of effort being replicated across all access points.
The results are in: incidents reduced to zero; improved visibility into and management of traffic sources; and minimal added latency. This translates to reduced CPU utilization and improved rate limits for end customers, in addition to demonstrable API security story which end customers can see and understand.
Some thoughts from Rob Davies, VP of Engineering and Lead Architect at Revenera:
We've made the investment in Wallarm API Security because we believe it's the best there is on the market and it fits our needs really well.
The benefit for our end users is that they have more CPU cycles for their API calls. And since we are filtering out a lot of this bad traffic, we are able to push up our rate limits without increasing resources at the back end.
I would absolutely recommend Wallarm, in a heartbeat. They do what they say on the tin - meaning what they say they can do, they really do.
Wallarm helps you develop fast and stay secure.
