As APIs become more critical to business, they are also becoming more vulnerable to hackers. “Shift-left” security measures add security checks during design and implementation––but teams also need to consider “shift-right” requirements, which provide assurance that APIs perform as expected in the production runtime environment.
API Security Monitoring
Monitor real functional sequences for your critical secure APIs using the same security that a customer would use. Don’t just test and hope – APImetrics gives you secure, easy to use tools to be able to verify all aspects of your functional production security system.
[APImetrics] helped us to increase visibility of our APIs performance and significantly improved awareness. It’s great to understand what challenges we would need to deal with once our international footprint increases… we were in a process of finishing up major internal stack optimizations and APImetrics really helped to measure/confirm improvements. More improvements are coming and it’s great to have an independent benchmark to compare against.
How APImetrics Works
APImetrics works with all the major API security standards with an API-first, API-native focus from inside our core platform. Don’t risk monitoring your security stack with unreliable or brittle scripts running on unknown servers. Configure and verify your security function 24/7 on the cloud data centers it is being called from using the same settings as your customers.
Measure secure, production APIs
- Looks the same as a customer journey
- Easy to test scenarios from different locations and data centers without knowing lots of dev/tooling
- Solves the ‘the customer is complaining but engineering says it’s all fine’ issue
- Run key security checks in production 24/7 with little overhead or technical debt/complexity
- Identify if resources accidentally get opened unexpectedly
- Test FAPI and OAuth scenarios in production without writing lots of code, and leave them running 24/7
- Measure from where your customers have applications not just AWS
- Be ready for a distributed JAMSTACK/SMOKESTACK world
- Understand where best to host, where to help your customers with problems that can be fixed
- Easy to use integrated reporting – create your own reports, see the data you need to see with our AI assisted Insights
- Don’t get the wool pulled over your eyes by teams with their own agendas?
- Get unfiltered access to accurate end-to-end performance metrics that match your customer’s experiences
- Measure Service Levels from where the user of the service is based, not from inside your stack
- End-to-end metrics generated by tooling that isn’t part of service deliver, development or your existing APM stack – builds trust and confidence in metrics
- Designed to work with product security for some of the most secure API stacks in the world in exactly the same way as a Trusted Third Party would use it – imagine having a monitoring surface the equivalent of a Third Party in every data center
