Protection against cyberattacks on APIs and applications

Be it malicious bots, zero-day exploits or typical attacks according to OWASP Top 10: Airlock Gateway keeps undesirable and malicious visitors away from your web applications and APIs, e.g. with hardened filter rules and anomaly detection based on machine learning. And in conjunction with Airlock IAM, only authenticated and authorized users are granted access to the application.

Protect yourself today from the risks of tomorrow.

Airlock Gateway

Authentication and access control

Airlock's Identity and Access Management guarantees secure and efficient access to digital services. Users benefit from an excellent user experience and single sign-on, in combination with Airlock Gateway even for non-standard applications. Airlock IAM protects against identity theft and shines with flexible registration and login flows including a large number of authentication methods.

Ensure user-friendly and secure access to your applications.

Distributed security checks for modern applications

Application protection for today's APIs and tomorrow's microservices: Airlock Microgateway is designed for use in Kubernetes environments. Security policies and compliance can be perfectly automated thanks to Security as Code. This ensures better integration of security and governance throughout the DevSecOps lifecycle. Modern zero-trust architectures also benefit from micro-segmentation and distributed access controls.

Protect your cloud-native applications.

The components at a glance

Airlock IAM

Central access management

Airlock IAM is the central access management component of the Secure Access Hub. It guarantees users secure access to data and applications, with single sign-on and automated user administration.

Airlock IAM offers context-based authentication of users and clients, and authorises access. The large number of authentication methods supported allows for flexible implementation of strong authentication in conjunction with company-wide single sign-on. Even externally managed identities such as social login profiles or IDs from a federation group, such as SwissID, for example, can be integrated.

Airlock Gateway

Web Application and API Protection

Airlock Gateway is both a web application firewall (WAF) and an API security gateway. It also protects against undesired bots and DoS attacks. This product category is also called Web Application and API Protection (WAAP).

Airlock Microgateway

Agile Protection of Microservices

Airlock Microgateway is a lightweight security gateway designed specifically for container environments. With little effort, it helps DevOps engineers and application teams protect their services from unauthorized or malicious access.

Airlock 2FA

Strong authentication – Simply secure.

Airlock 2FA is integrated into Airlock IAM and makes strong authentication possible with a second factor. Every customer has the management and use of their personal keys on their smartphone (iOS and Android).

Airlock 2FA offers modern authentication methods such as one touch, offline QR code, passcode and passwordless. This user-friendly and future-proof solution is also cost-efficient.

The entire functionality is implemented as a REST API and therefore enables seamless integration into modern single page applications (SPA) and native smartphone apps.
