Today’s technology is being used in most creative ways. Application programming interface (API) powering up business and user in sharing, interacting, automating services programmatically. API’s often is all about collect, process and share data in a better way.
An insecure API’s can become an entry point for attackers to abuse critical services. Particularly with the rise of Cloud adoption, embedded devices, IoT etc which enabled to implement API security as an integral part of software development lifecycle. Attacker can use vulnerable API’s to gain access to unauthorized data, to perform distributed denial-of-service(DDoS) attack, or account takeovers etc.
Our API assessment focuses on identifying the security risks and vulnerable entry points throughout the application.
Our methodology is derived from industry best practices such as Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), API Security Top 10 2019 as baseline in addition with our in-house custom security checks.
