API Security Done Right.

Let us worry about security so you don't have to.

There's No Guesswork Required

You do not have to rely on security by obscurity, manually configured rules, or hope that some anomaly detection can report an attack. With 42Crunch, there is no more guesswork required. Our approach is to rely on the API contract, leveraging the OpenAPI (aka Swagger) de-facto standard. What is described by the contract is accepted, what is not is rejected. It’s as simple and powerful as that. 

We'll Do the Heavy Lifting

42Crunch was built to do the work - so you don’t have to. With 42Crunch, security audit and scanning become automated checks ensuring that unsecure APIs never make it to the master branch and production deployment. Moreover, runtime protection policies get automatically redeployed with each API change, making sure that you can stay agile without compromising security.

We Know APIs

Our API security team comes from a wide background of WAF, API management, and white hat security companies. We are one of the active members of the Linux Foundation OpenAPI (formally Swagger) Initiative and reviewers of OWASP Top 10 for API Security. With us, you can be sure that your APIs are checked against the latest known risks and follow the latest best practices.

DevSecOps Becomes Effortless

Shifting left has never been so easy! 42Crunch gets everyone in the company speaking the same language with full visibility into all APIs, the current state of affairs, security levels, protection status, and report of any required security improvements. Collaboration becomes seamless, DevSecOps is enabled, and magic happens.

Designed for Flexibility

You can use our API firewall to equally protect north-south and east-west traffic. Thanks to its low footprint, it can be deployed at scale on any container orchestrator such as Kubernetes, Amazon ECS or Red Hat OpenShift(®). Our runtime is fully compatible with existing API management solutions or API gateways and with microservices-based architectures.
