The components at a glance
Airlock API Gateway
Airlock API gateway provides custom protection for interfaces, securing connections to a wide range of peripheral systems.
JSON Schema and OpenAPI specifications can be uploaded and enforced on the API gateway. Innovative functions such as dynamic value endorsement (DyVE) also enable dynamic whitelisting of permitted variables within API interactions. SOAP/XML requests can also be checked against formal definitions such as a WSDL specification.
Access control is one of the most important issues in the context of API protection; all the relevant standards, such as OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect 1.0, are supported in conjunction with Airlock IAM.
Airlock WAF analyses all the traffic to the services and applications under protection, blocking attempted attacks long before they reach in-house services.
Airlock WAF provides comprehensive protection against OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, enabling centralised management of security guidelines. Thanks to these innovative security functions, companies can always stay a step ahead of attackers.
Working in conjunction with Airlock IAM, Airlock WAF serves as a central implementation point for security guidelines (policy enforcement point), to ensure that all access is authenticated and authorised. Airlock WAF’s many interfaces, with peripheral systems such as security information and event management (SIEM) systems, virus scanners, threat intelligence, fraud prevention systems and hardware security modules (HSMs), make it the central hub in any security architecture.
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 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 zero touch, 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.

Ivan Hafner, IT Security Manager at Generali
Airlock has made us agile and secure. Because it provides the upstream security layer that enables us to develop what is really important: convincing digital services for our customers.
Martin Burri, IT Security Officer Visana
Our goal was to implement a centralized and open platform that supports agile and secure app-based transactions and ensures maximum security and stability in the backend. We didn't want to compromise. The solution had to be immediately deployable, with minimal customization, and feature state-of-the-art technologies.
