A combination of factors makes APIs rich targets for security attacks. We discuss methods for securing APIs throughout their lifecycle, from design and development through delivery, using WAFs, bot protection, API management tools, and API gateways.
Choosing the Right API Gateway Pattern for Effective API Delivery
APIs are increasingly critical to many businesses, so choosing the right API gateway pattern for your application delivery infrastructure is key. Here we explore five such patterns: edge gateway, two-tier gateway, microgateway, per-pod gateways, and sidecar gateways.
The State of API Gateways
We examine the state of API gateways as the industry transitions from monolithic to microservices‑based apps, considering the challenges of hugely distributed app environments. We explore the role of API gateways in a service mesh and in hybrid clouds.
Rewind 2019: Highlights from the NGINX Blog
As 2019 comes to an end, we take a moment to look back at the most popular and noteworthy moments from the NGINX blog.
APIs Need Secure and Scalable Delivery Too
Your APIs need the same level of security, scalability, and visibility as your web applications. API gateway functionality is built into NGINX Plus, together with its many other high-performance features. NGINX Controller manages your API gateways and provides full API lifecycle management.
