A fresh approach to GraphQL

Making systems communicate is important and one of the primary things engineers spend their time on. It’s also really hard. That’s where our Universal Data Graph comes to the rescue. In the latest update to our Tyk Open Source API Gateway we make it quick and simple to unify and control access to every data-source in your organisation. All without code.

Implement authentication and authorisation for GraphQL using the powerful open source gateway from Tyk. Protect your data graph and provide granular access rights for all of your data sources.

The GraphQL denial of service protection feature ensures that your data graph can elegantly handle a DOS attack, through granular query depth control.

Adopting GraphQL is not without its pitfalls

Concerns about security, performance, separation of concerns, and how teams can independently develop their GraphQL APIs are all still valid today. Many of the challenges which have been long-solved and deemed best-practice with REST are still in their infancy with GraphQL.

This was the start of Tyk’s journey

How to go about enabling organisations to build and safely ship their GraphQL APIs. But as we delved deeper down the rabbit hole, gaining constant feedback from clients as we iterated, we realised that we were enabling so much more.

What we created was a 2-fold approach

So if you are a CTO, CIO, API Product Manager, or an Engineer, researching how GraphQL can enable your business & platform team. Join Matt Tanner at the OPEN Stage B, Wednesday at 9am as he arms you with practical considerations for securing your GraphQL APIs, and to drive GraphQL adoption in your organization using Tyk’s Universal Data Graph.
