Detectify expands coverage for public APIs (in development)

Our security researchers happen to be talented bug bounty hunters as well as the brains behind of Detectify's efforts to develop a leading-edge API security scanner.

Why is developing a reliable API security tool so challenging? It's because every API is different, which means it’s challenging to have a standardized approach to security testing on APIs.

Almroth states that the team will focus on developing an API security scanner that focuses on server-side vulnerabilities. Both share that this is going to use fuzzing techniques.

Detectify is expanding its web app fuzzing engine to scan public-facing APIs for vulnerabilities. Earlier in the year, we released a new fuzzing engine, and it was developed with API scanning in mind. In Fall 2021, we will roll out open beta testing.
