Cloudentity has released GraphQL support capabilities that protect the GraphQL application programming interface (APIs).

This expanded ability accelerates progress; allowing developers to build API technologies that best fit their application and release the APIs more securely. Enables centralized policy management and distributed protection from data leaks, cyberattacks attacks, and the risk of a broken edge.

GraphQL adoption continues to double each year among the developer community, and it is estimated that millions of developers will use GraphQL for projects over the next few years. This widespread acceptance is encouraged by the easy-to-use definition of data in the APIs provided by GraphQL. Although GraphQL APIs accelerate application development, save time and resources, improve developer knowledge, and create new security risks and API data leak challenges.

Nathanael Coffing, CSO and co-founder of Cloudentity said, “With the increase in development teams using GraphQL to accelerate time-to-market for applications, it’s absolutely critical that each API follows Zero Trust principles from authentication to authorization to mitigate the risk of vulnerable, leaky APIs. Our mission is to enable organizations to easily protect every API and data request. Our GraphQL support demonstrates Cloudentity’s commitment to providing leading-edge API authorization and access control solutions that meet the evolving needs of enterprises today.”
