Veracode, the largest global provider of application security testing (AST), releases enhanced API (Application Programming Interfaces) scanning to tackle the fastest-growing cyber attack vector.
To provide comprehensive security insights and remediation guidance for APIs as early and efficiently as possible, the new capability leverages Veracode’s powerful Dynamic Analysis (DAST) scanning engine.
“The explosion of APIs means that application development is becoming more fragmented and decentralized in nature, so the attack surface is growing exponentially. As such, API scanning has become the most-requested feature by our customers as they look for a solution that saves time, frees up resources, and provides peace of mind.”, said Brian Roche, Chief Product Officer at Veracode.
Veracode’s API Scanning has streamlined the vulnerability identification, prioritization, and remediation process for an internationally renowned pest control specialist.
Roche added that In a world where every relationship should start with zero trust, regular API scanning must be a cornerstone of any robust software security strategy.
