Web-based attacks have become routine for any organization with an internet presence. The single most common target of these attacks is the set of applications that make up that organization’s presence. This includes targeting the organization’s systems, services, and tools that support those applications as well as the applications themselves.
A big part of those applications includes how they are accessed – by users, by other applications and services. Much of this functionality is controlled by the APIs the organization has included in their implementations. APIs are critical components in modern web-based applications. They potentially expose application logic and sensitive data as they help control data flows. API attacks tend to focus on authentication, authorization, asset management, injections, and insufficient logging. Successful attacks can potentially provide an attacker access to the supported applications or to the data to which the application has access.
Evolve Security’s API penetration testing are designed to help you proactively manage these risks. Evolve Security provides information to help you identify, prioritize, remediate, manage, and report on the vulnerabilities associated with your implemented APIs. Since the web and your supporting applications are very dynamic, Evolve Security is committed using our Darwin Attack® portal to enable near real-time communications, providing you with results as the test progresses. And these results are not just jargon laden content, but meaningful details about the identified vulnerabilities, potential consequences, and recommended remediations.
This active collaboration means you can start prioritization and remediation immediately, making the best use of the actionable information associated with the identified vulnerabilities. Evolve Security ensures you have details that enable you to conduct proactive remediation, reducing the exploitable vulnerabilities in your environment, enhancing your control and security, improving compliance, and reducing risk.
