    Hi @Somiya Thanks for reaching out. From the description I believe the actual flow is client -> App Gateway -> APIM -> Backend please correct me if I am wrong here.
    in order to limit the request to the API's you can implement Rate limit and quotas policies for more information please refer: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/api-management/api-management-access-restriction-policies

    Our data plane security model provides other methods to protect the downstream traffic to APIM and you can use any of them to enforce more restriction, below is a diagram that lists the all the methods we provide:

    you can implement any of the above methods in conjunction with the subscription Key to improve the security and enforce more restriction's
