Include Governance, Compliance, and Protection
in Every Content App and Integration You Build

Application programming interfaces (APIs) are a great way for businesses to provide customers with an easy way to build custom applications for their businesses without spending a lot of time and money developing them from scratch. However, unsecure APIs expose customers to malicious actors who can take advantage of unprotected data or services. Part of the Kiteworks Private Content Network, Kiteworks secure APIs enable organizations to develop custom content applications and integrations that save them time, lower costs, and reduce the risks of breaches and compliance violations. Kiteworks secure APIs provide developers the building blocks they need to access, transfer, and store content via email, file shares, HTTPS, and SFTP on a hardened virtual appliance foundation that secures the content and provides the governance and audit trail needed for regulatory compliance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Secure APIs are application programming interfaces (APIs) that have been designed with secure protocols, authentication, and encryption measures to ensure the integrity of data, authentication of users and devices, and verification of messages received. Secure APIs are important because they provide the foundation for secure communication between applications and services. They protect applications and services against malicious access and data theft, ensuring that personal data and other sensitive data is not exposed. By using secure APIs, organizations minimize their data and application security risk, ensuring that their systems are secure from malicious intrusion.

Developers can make APIs either secure or more secure by setting API keys to allow only specific users, applications, or servers to access their API and provide additional security from malicious actors. Developers can also implement rate limiting to limit the number of requests that can be made to an API within a given time frame. This helps to protect the API from abuse, such as a malicious actor making too many requests in an attempt to overload the system and cause it to crash.

Secure SFTP APIs are secure application programming interfaces (APIs) that allow developers to connect to and transfer files over SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) networks. They provide a comprehensive set of secure file transfer capabilities, including encryption, authentication, logging, and digital signature verification. Secure SFTP APIs also offer additional features like folder synchronization and remote directory listing for data management.

Secure email APIs are application programming interfaces that enable developers to programmatically build, integrate, and deploy secure email services in their applications. The APIs provide secure connection protocols and methods to ensure that emails and other transmissions are sent and received securely. Some features of secure email APIs include encryption, authentication, authorization, and monitoring of user activities.

Secure APIs provide a robust layer of security that helps protect resources and data from unauthorized access. They help to ensure that access is only granted to those who have the proper credentials and that the data is only accessed in the way that it is intended. They also help to prevent data tampering and ultimately improve the security of any system or application that is using the API.
