Decoding API Security

When it comes to access points from a hacker’s perspective, APIs are high on the list. The API framework is such that it makes a great target for hackers who want to get at application logic or other sensitive information. With SharkStriker API Penetration testing services, you will essentially be testing the server-side of your application for vulnerabilities residing in backend application logic and the API source code.

Having an insecure and incomplete API configuration is like inviting attackers to penetrate your network. While APIs are prevalent and ubiquitous to establish and enhance operational efficiencies, it is up to you to comprehend the attack surface and secure them. Our vast array of API tests and tools can help you reap the benefits of a secure API implementation, be it REST (Representational State Transfer) or SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol).
