Active Testing is now available on Noname’s API Security Platform. The solution allows you to simulate more than 100 prebuilt attacks on APIs.

Active Testing simulates API attacks. The components of an attack are configurable to match an organization’s environment. Test results can be incorporated into API adjustments by developers. The solution is quick to implement and relatively easy to use. Active Testing is available as SaaS and on-premises.

API security with Active Testing

The solution supports API security during the development process. An important factor, because most API vulnerabilities originate from vulnerable configurations. The best precautions are taken during the development phase, not afterwards.

At the same time, organizations are facing a shortage of developers worldwide. Pressure is typically high. Managers can prioritize security as much as they want, but security will always take resources. If developers can’t find the time, security becomes an afterthought.

Noname Security tackles the problem. “Our Active Testing solution enables dynamic API security testing within existing development pipelines, detecting issues early in the software development life cycle where they are easier and far less costly to fix”, shared Shay Levi, Co-Founder and CTO at Noname Security. “It is highly customizable and automated, testing with the rigour and intensity the business requires without burdening developers with additional steps or requiring them to become security experts.”

Noname Security

Active Testing runs on the Noname API Security Platform, a complete solution for centralizing, monitoring and securing APIs. Noname Security was founded in 2020. A year later, its market value stood at over a billion dollars. This should come as no surprise. The organization is responding to an urgent problem. API traffic is growing rapidly; API attacks grow at the same pace

Some organizations assume that API Gateways and Web Application Firewalls (WAF) offer sufficient protection. In reality, both measures fall short. Gateways and WAFs intercept suspicious traffic, but do nothing to solve the underlying problem.

Cybercriminals seek vulnerable code and configurations. Strong API security starts during the development process. It’s up to developers to follow best practices. That’s where Noname Security comes in.
