Data Theorem, developer of application security systems, has announced two new solutions for API security analysis, API Inspect and API discover. Both tools aim to help customers gain a greater visibility into the status of their applications overall API security.
API Inspect provides users a continuous automated security tool that hunts for potential vulnerabilities in the authentication and encryption layers of APIs. The service alerts customers when problems arise due to changes in an API’s functionality, which differ from the API’s specification.
API Discovery also offers continuous monitoring, but this service focuses on finding new APIs. The tool provides a dashboard to track all the APIs that an application uses, listing API domains, functions, and associated methods. The service also notifies users when shadow APIs are discovered.
