Active API Protection

See all live and shadow APIs instantly. Eliminate risks at scale.

Discover and protect every API in your application environment

Vulnerability Scanning for APIs

Stop wasting time on static scanners and manual API testing, get automatic API catalogs, real-time insights on vulnerabilities, and prioritized runtime risks from internal, legacy and third party APIs.

Open API Graphs & Attack Paths

Get an instant view of your entire live API blueprint, across dev, staging and prod. With an intuitive graph interface, fly through risk, context, and threat models for public and internal API endpoints.

Inline API Threat Protection

API protection doesn't have to stop at a WAF. Protect your internal and 3rd party API interactions with K8s-native controls for protocol specific authentication, authorization, traffic rate limiting, API to API microsegmentation, and more.

Top OWASP API Risks




Single-step install.
Zero integrations.
Zero instrumentation.


Save time and money while securing the entire application environment

Make Every API More Secure

Actively protect against internal and 3rd party API abuses and attacks within the application itself. With absolutely no manual work, discover the entire live API blueprint - zombies and known APIs alike - and eliminate critical threats directly within Operant’s interface without any extra engineering projects.

Do More With Less

Know everything you need to know about your APIs across your entire K8s application stack without any integrations, instrumentation or manual upkeep. Eliminate manual API catalogs, overly generic rulesets and manual remediation workflows by enforcing fine-grained security policies across every API in your stack with zero drift across your entire K8s environment.

Reduce Costs & Tooling Overload

Eliminate the cost of installation, integrations, maintenance, training, and tooling upkeep while being more secure. Slash your security TCO by consolidating the cost of your tooling from API Threat Protection, Kubernetes Security, KSPM, ASPM, and Runtime Threat Detection and Response into one purpose-built API-first solution that requires no integrations or instrumentation to work.

Scale Applications Faster

Don’t let API risks hold your application development timelines back. Operant shields every layer of your Kubernetes-based applications against major API-based attacks and scales automatically as you grow. Deploy faster and more securely with full knowledge of your API footprint + security guardrails that protect your applications from dev to staging to prod.

APIs are easy to expose, but difficult to defend. Operant defends APIs inside the perimeter.

Real-world Example

A new shopping cart K8s deployment relying on third-party APIs was left open to the internet, where attackers used a machine identity to enter the company’s application internals and initiate a lateral attack. With instance scaling, new IP-addresses were dynamically assigned and the hard-coded network layer rules did not work. This breach in the shopping cart instance allowed the attacker to hop through the recommendation service and payment service instances, eventually stealing customer PII data
stored in their AWS S3 bucket.

How Operant Solves It

Only Operant is able to identify and prioritize the criticality of this type of open runtime vulnerability in the live application environment and stop this kind of lateral attack because Operant understands all of the live application traffic flow across every layer of the application and has the ability to enforce security policies within your environment:

  • Operant identifies the open API instantly
  • Operant provides immediate remediation enforcement action through its SaaS control plane
  • Operant enables security and platform engineers to set up new zero trust policies governing access controls to prevent future lateral attacks
  • Operant enforces those policies at runtime without drift in any new K8s cluster that is assigned via rule logic
