At Cloudflare, we know APIs make the world go around. That is why we make our massive global network your API gateway. With API discovery, integrated API management and analytics, and layered API defenses, Cloudflare ensures APIs drive business success like never before.
About 55% of the traffic on the Cloudflare network is API-related. It is time for such a large, growing attack vector to enjoy dedicated, powerful protections.
APIs are the fastest growing data type, growing more than twice as fast as web traffic.
Cloudflare now blocks more API traffic than web traffic, demonstrating that attackers have APIs in their crosshairs.
API Gateway keeps APIs secure and productive:
API Gateway management keeps APIs high performing with powerful monitoring and management:
The security in API Gateway protects organizations against the risks in the OWASP Foundation's API Security Top 10 security list.
The Cloudflare web application firewall (WAF) is the cornerstone of our advanced application security portfolio that keeps applications and APIs secure and productive, thwarts DDoS attacks, keeps bots at bay, detects anomalies and malicious payloads, all while monitoring for browser supply chain attacks.
Cloudflare has been recognized as a Leader in the 2022 "Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAAP" report. We believe this recognition validates that we protect against emerging threats faster, offer tighter integration of security capabilities, and deliver powerful ease of use and deployment.
