Noname Security unveiled Noname Recon. The solution finds public APIs and domains that make an organization vulnerable from the outside. Noname Recon scans an environment from the perspective of a cybercriminal, also known as outside-in security.
Noname Security hit the market in 2020. A year after its founding, the organization exceeded a $1 billion evaluation. One of the most important reasons for its growth is the increase in cyberattacks on APIs. Noname Security develops software solutions to prevent such attacks.
The organization regularly expands its offering. The latest product was recently announced. Noname Security unveiled Noname Recon, a solution that scans an organization’s environment from the perspective of a cybercriminal.
Noname Recon creates an overview of all public APIs and domains. From there, the solution detects vulnerabilities. To give an example, Noname Recon finds APIs and domains that expose data that cybercriminals can use to carry out attacks.
Various organizations have been attacked as a result of the latter over the years. Unsecured APIs can exchange sensitive information and personal data with unauthorized users. Noname Recon finds such APIs. On top of that, the solution detects suspicious behaviour by scanning for changes to public APIs and domains.
In addition to finding vulnerabilities, Noname Recon helps resolve vulnerabilities. The technology allows users to prioritize key threats. Among other things, Noname Recon highlights low-hanging fruit: patches that take the least amount of time and have the greatest impact.
Thinking like a hacker
The solution uses the same threat intelligence as Noname Security’s existing products. This means that Noname Recon is up to date on the latest API attack tactics, allowing users to counter attacks in an early stage.
“How do you beat a hacker? Think like them”, said Shay Levi, co-founder and CTO of Noname Security. “With Recon, we’ve made it easy to identify potential vulnerabilities and exploitable intelligence by simulating attacker reconnaissance, so customers can use that information to better protect themselves.”
