Why API Penetration Testing is Important and Different_Qualysec (1)

APIs or Application Programming Interfaces allow different software applications to communicate and work together. For example, a newly installed app uses Google/Facebook API for quick registration. However, since APIs help transfer data from the source to the application, a single breach in them can have significant consequences.

APIs often have security issues like broken authentication, misconfigurations, server-side request forgery (SSRF), etc. So how to fix these issues effectively?

This is where API penetration testing comes in.

API penetration testing secures the connection between the API and the application by detecting security vulnerabilities. Companies employ third-party pen testers to simulate real attacks on the APIs to detect security issues. This way developers can use the results of the pen test and fix the API security.

So, join this webinar to learn about API security risks in detail and how to overcome them effectively.

A cyberattack on an API can lead to data breaches, service downtime, financial loss, and loss of customer trust. By conducting API pen testing, businesses can identify security vulnerabilities that can lead to unauthorized access and cyberattacks.

Purpose of this Webinar:

  • To educate individuals on API security vulnerabilities
  • To convey the importance of API penetration testing
  • How API pen testing is different from Application pen testing
  • To outline the best API security practices
