New Version of Noname Security’s Active Testing Combines Developer-Friendly Integrations with Best-In-Class API Reachability.
San Jose, CA – June 21, 2023 – Noname Security, the leading provider of complete API security solutions, today announced the general availability of Active Testing V2 to help organizations leave no API untested. As an integral part of the Noname API Security Platform, Active Testing is the easiest, most advanced, and most complete API security testing solution available. Building on the success of the pioneering original version of Active Testing, the latest version helps industry leaders to further “shift left” to stop vulnerabilities from reaching production, innovate faster, and ensure compliance with evolving regulatory requirements.
Today, most APIs are not security tested before they are pushed to production. Quality assurance (QA) processes review apps and APIs for functionality, and some APIs are run through security testing tools, but the limits of these tools means that most APIs are overlooked. This leaves APIs vulnerable, despite handling organizations’ most important data, including personally identifiable information (PII), personal health information (PHI), or financial data such as payment card industry (PCI) data.
Forward-thinking organizations have embraced “shift left” and “DevSecOps” methodologies to incorporate security earlier in the development lifecycle. However, traditional testing tools and approaches were not designed to test the security of APIs, leaving organizations exposed. Current challenges include:
Noname Security Active Testing is a purpose-built API security testing solution that helps organizations easily add API security into their application development process, including continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) integration, dynamic or static API specification analysis, and more. Built to complement existing security tooling and processes, Active Testing helps organizations to:
“Testing the security of APIs in development makes good financial sense,” said Shay Levi, CTO & Co-Founder of Noname Security. “Fixing issues earlier in an API’s lifecycle can reduce remediation costs by 10x to 100x. With rising costs of re-writing code, regulatory fines, delays to new products, brand impacts, and the drops in shareholder value after breaches, it’s no surprise that industry-leaders are actively addressing API security in development.”
Built from the ground up to specifically address the challenges of testing APIs for security vulnerabilities, Noname Security Active Testing includes:
In addition to Active Testing, Noname Security continues to innovate across the entire Noname API Security Platform, including additional capabilities for securing Kubernetes clusters, eBPF functionality, inline remediation options, integrations, and further AI/ML customization.
