Application Program Interface (API) is a significant part of Web Services, which is an implementation of Web Technology. Web services and API are used for communication between the application interface and server-side functionalities. Two types of API services includes REST API and SOAP API web services. Each of these types, either XML or JSON are used to procure data from the server based on API request calls, from the application.
Since the usage of API services became more significant in modern web and mobile apps, it becomes a major attack vector and paves the gateway for various new variety of vulnerabilities and threats. API services security assessment will provide a significant amount of information about the vulnerabilities in the API to the developers, which are necessary to avoid data breaches.
APIs are driving the next generation of software architecture?
APIs are driving the next generation of software architecture and creating a new digital business channel for customer engagement (such as Desktop Apps and Mobile Apps). The downside is that, they are also opening a variety of new attack vectors which are being exploited every day by malicious actors and applications.
Do you have API security in place?
API can provide hackers, direct access to critical business data. No week passes by without the news of data leaks and API security breaches of organizations. Do you have a strategy for securing your APIs and complying with data-protection regulations? The sad answer may be a No!
Are you considering your API as a part of security assessment?:
A security assessment hardens your API and prevents it from an attack vector against your organization. An API security test is an authorized hacking attempt, aimed at identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities in the architecture and configuration of an API. The purpose of this test is to demonstrate how attackers can compromise an API and gain access to an organization's digital assets.
