Aite Group – Rise of API Security Gateways

Rise of the New API Security Gateway Market

“Out of all the ASGs, Forum was the most remarkable solution we reviewed”


The rise in API data breaches means traditional API gateways with security as a feature and legacy web application firewalls have offered enough empirical data that these technologies are no longer sufficient to protect organizations and their data.

This report proposes a new product category of API security gateways (ASGs) designed to secure organizational externally facing and internally facing APIs in order to highlight the failure of using API gateway solutions to secure APIs. It also emphasizes a need to decouple ASGs from the API gateways product category and explains why attempting to secure APIs against cyberattacks with API gateways and web application firewalls is ineffectual.
