Use No-Code REST API Security Testing

Why security test your applications/APIs?

  • According to Gartner, Applications/APIs are the most attacked vector.

  • Regulatory compliances like HIPAA, SOC 2, ISO, PCI-DSS, etc., mandate application security testing.

Why is security testing hard?

  • Manual - Basic stuff is automated, but the rest is human-driven
  • Expensive - Ranges from $4k to $100k
  • Noisy Reports - Low quality and nice-to-have suggestions frustrate developers

What is No-Code security testing?

  • No need to write code
  • No configuration is required either

Identifying and protecting PII , PHI information are crucial for any organization , it is essential to move this to SHIFT LEFT strategy (identify as we code APIs)…
Thanks for sharing …
