ForAllSecure Launches Automated API Security Solution that Can Start Detecting Bugs in Five Minutes
ForAllSecure, a pioneer in autonomous application security, announced today the newest addition to its product portfolio, Mayhem for API. Up and running in just five minutes, Mayhem for API is an easy-to-use API testing solution that maintains an organization’s velocity by combining API performance, reliability and security results through continuous testing practices. Reinforced by OWASP’s Top 10 Web Application Security Risks, Mayhem for API uses fuzz testing to secure APIs from SQL injections, command injections, authentication bypasses, server side request forgeries, and DoS attacks.
In a recent study, 83% of organizations consider API integration a critical part of their business strategy, driven by digital transformation initiatives and cloud application adoption. As organizations adopt these strategies to deliver faster value to customers, there has been an exponential reliance on microservices. This has led to greater diligence on validating API performance, reliability, and security. APIs that are broken, exposed, or hacked can expose sensitive data. Gartner predicts that API attacks will become the most frequent vector for cyberattacks by 2022.
