API Sentry is an on-going managed service bringing visibility to the security health of third party and in-house APIs. It combines CynergisTek's security and analytics expertise with sophisticated API security testing technology to ensure consistent and up-to-date results. The Challenge The use of APIs has increased exponentially because of the ability to quickly share data and processes, leading to better interoperability between applications. The rapid adoption has significantly increased the attack surface area for company applications and existing methods for securing web applications miss API-targeted attacks since APIs include: • Unique Vulnerabilities Contain code and business functionality unique to the organization and any flaws in coding or logic represent Zero-Day vulnerabilities. • Managed Access Changes to APIs to meet the demands of the organization can be difficult to manage over time without a program and technical solution. • Extended Connectivity APIs often need access to parts of the network that would otherwise not be allowed creating a larger potential attack surface. • Compliance with Interoperability Requirement to comply with regulations such as the 21st Century Cures Act focusing on advancing interoperability and information blocking. THE BENEFITS Improved API Management Keep an eye on API usage and ensure the appropriate API security related documentation to maintain compliance is in place and up-to-date. One-stop for API Security Comprehensive, continuous testing and remediation tracking through customized designed solution giving the ability to validate the security posture of APIs as part of an interoperability initiative. Cost Effective Proactive and on-going approach versus manual penetration testing that could be costly over time. API Sentry Safeguard Your Data With API Security Testing The Solution The API Sentry service helps organizations understand and manage the risks associated with APIs in their environment not once but on a continuous basis.
