Cequence Unified API Protection can be integrated into an Azure API Gateway environment in several ways depending on the desired outcome and goals.
This overview describes a passive "capture and forward" by an Azure API Gateway resident script to a Cequence API Edge traffic ingestion API.
This integration method provides your Cequence UAP with transaction information allowing to do discovery and analysis for Bot Detection, and API traffic analysis, including the discovery and analysis of known, unknown, and shadow API traffic, along with monitoring for sensitive data exposure and potential OWASP API violations.
Transactions are captured in one or more Azure API Gateways, where the transaction information is copied to a Cequence API Edge query and POST'd to the Cequence API Edge traffic ingestion API. Once captured in this way, the application data stream is handled in the same manner as transactions captured by Cequence Defender or Cequence Sensor.
Additional integration information is available in Azure API Gateway - Steps.
