Address API vulnerabilities

The security of web applications is of paramount importance to business continuity and integrity. While traditional firewalls and other security controls are an important security layer, they cannot defend or alert you to many of the attack vectors specific to web applications.

This API Penetration Test contains a mix of advanced manual testing techniques and automated scans to simulate real-world attacks to identify risks within your web applications.

It will assess:

  • Authentication
  • Authorisation
  • Session management
  • Input validation and sanitisation
  • Server configuration
  • Encryption
  • Information leakage
  • Application workflow
  • Application logic
