API gateways provide you with the ability to realize the benefits of microservice architectures and scale to the individual services that make up the modern day application.
While some organizations may choose to integrate their authorization decision directly into the microservice as a sidecar, depending on their adoption, they may choose to deploy the authorization policy as part of the API Gateway.
When organizations build policies using Axiomatics and leverage the API Gateways as an enforcement point, they accelerate their ability to scale and attribute-based access control (ABAC) model across their applications.
In turn, this architecture serves the Zero Trust goals of continuous policy enforcement against critical attributes such as risk, time, location, classification, role, etc.
Axiomatics has integrated across leading API gateway solutions, such as Mulesoft, Apigee, or Kong, and helped customers around the world securely share data to improve the customer experience.
By using industry standards, no custom coding or SDKs are needed to achieve interoperability between Axiomatics and API Gateways.
Organizations only need to configure gateway settings to add enhanced Attribute-based access control (ABAC) capabilities to their API security implementation.
In this model, the API Gateway is the Policy Enforcement Point (PEP), while Axiomatics continues to provide the Policy Decision Point (PDP) and integration with attributes (PIPs):
