Test APIs for Vulnerabilities

With the number of APIs skyrocketing, companies are facing increasing challenges when it comes to security. Either there aren’t enough people who know how to test APIs, the number of APIs are growing faster than the team can keep up with, or the existing security tools lack adequate coverage. Any one of these three scenarios can spell disaster for your environment.

Why API security testing is important

Fuzzing has limitations

Though a highly recommended tactic, fuzzing doesn't provide a complete picture into your vulnerabilities and defects. True security testing entails using real business logic to run tests and simulations.

When you test your APIs is very important

When it comes to API development, it’s not just a matter of testing but also when you test your APIs. Traditionally, testing happens before deployment. But by consolidating testing into one phase of the software development lifecycle (SDLC), you create a bottleneck in the process as there is a never ending supply of code to test.

Organizations should pursue a shift-left API testing model

Shift-left is an approach of moving tasks earlier in the development process. This means that tasks that are traditionally done at a later stage should instead be performed at earlier stages. In the context of API security testing, developers are able to test early and throughout the development lifecycle.

Introducing Active Testing

Noname Security Active Testing helps customers stop vulnerabilities before production and innovate faster. True to a shift-left approach, security testing is baked into each step of the DevOps process, ensuring developers can monitor for vulnerabilities throughout the lifecycle. Developers can build API security into the design, and make fixes early.
