API Penetration

BreachLock API penetration testing is delivered using our PTaaS model to identify, validate, prioritize, and remediate vulnerabilities in internal, external , and composite APIs.


What Are APIs and Why Are They So Vulnerable?

An API, or Application Programming Interface, is a set of rules and protocols that allow different software applications to communicate and interact with each other. APIs are designed to provide access to specific data or functionalities within an application or system. Whether it's sensitive customer information, financial data, or critical system functions, APIs are gateways to these assets.

BreachLock API penetration testing identifies weaknesses to help developers and organizations implement improved secure coding practices, thorough input validation, and robust authentication and authorization mechanisms to mitigate security vulnerabilities in APIs.

Internal API Pentesting

BreachLock internal API penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and misconfigurations in APIs designed to facilitate communication and data exchange within your internal network that can be exploited by malicious actors.

External API Pentesting

BreachLock external API penetration testing will identify security control weaknesses to ensure that the API is robust and follows secure development practices. This includes code review to identify and mitigate potential security risks before they are integrated into applications. 

Composite API Pentesting

BreachLock penetration testing identifies and mitigates weaknesses in composite APIs. Composite APIs consolidate multiple microservices into a single gateway, simplifying application interaction.
