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 pentesting services, you will essentially be testing the server-side of your application for vulnerabilities residing in backend application logic and the API source code.

An insecurely configured API is like putting up a ‘sign’ that welcomes attackers into your organization’s network. It is important to note that all organizations are going through continuous digital transformation and the use of API is prevalent to connect to services that improve operational efficiencies. Our wide-ranging API test helps you get the benefit of secure API implementation whether REST (Representational State Transfer) or SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol).
