API PenetrationTesting

Poorly secured APIs allow attackers to exploit not only the API itself, but any and every application associated with it.

Prevent unauthorized access or data breaches

Our goal is to find gaps before an internal or external hacker does, and report them to strengthen the API and prevent unauthorized access or data breaches across your systems and applications.

Penetration Testing Phases

Our Penetration Testers execute a thorough, well thought out project that consists of several phases

Benefits:

  • API testing validates the security of your methods and corresponding data
  • Proactively identify vulnerabilities and attack vectors within systems and web applications that could be leveraged by adversaries
  • We work to ensure the functionality of the business logic remains intact
  • Data is safely transferred from web applications or mobile applications to other systems or databases
  • Building regular web API updates and frequent testing into your workflow will help ensure a dependable performance and prevent the build-up of costly remediation
  • APIs are ideal targets for attackers due to their in depth documentation

Deliverables

You will receive a report outlining overall posture, and recommendations if any deficiencies are found. The assessment results include:

  • Kick off call with team
  • Final and Executive Summary
  • Immediate notification of critical findings
  • Detailed Findings and Remediation
  • Executive Presentation of initial findings
  • Retesting of initial findings
  • A final report with updated findings

Why is an API Penetration Test important?

Poorly secured APIs allow attackers to exploit not only the API itself, but any and every application associated with it. Our goal is to find gaps before an internal or external hacker does, and report them to strengthen the API and prevent unauthorized access or data breaches across your systems and applications.

How long does an API Penetration Test take?

Almost all of our Penetration Tests take approximately one week for initial testing. Upon notification of critical findings coupled with an executive presentation of initial findings, plus details for remediation, our team will execute a retest at no additional cost to you.

What does an API Penetration Test entail?

For each type of API endpoint, our security experts will fully review any documentation and examine all the requests, headers, and parameters. We will also consider your industry and gather additional information about infrastructure and the full software stack. While malicious actors can determine these details with enough time and energy, we request this level of detailed information specific about your environment because the more we know about your API methods, the better value we can give you on your API security testing engagement.

What is an API?

An API (Application Programming Interface) is a data exchange used by web applications to transfer information between systems. APIs are used by programmers in mobile applications and web applications.
