Application program interfaces (APIs) provide essential functions and access to data for today’s full-featured applications and integrations. Unfortunately, if they’re not well-architected, expertly implemented, and thoroughly tested, these APIs can be a back door around security.
Effective API penetration testing requires a diligent effort to find weaknesses — attackers are relentless, so testing should be too. Whether you use a SOAP, REST, or custom API, it’s critical that every endpoint be carefully evaluated. We don’t rely on vulnerability scanning or static techniques and assessment methods, but rather analyze each endpoint to predict areas of weakness and then attempt to validate their existence.
