Security Testing and Technical Assurance

API/Web – Services Penetration Testing

Web services or APIs allow applications to expose programmatic interfaces that can be used by other integrated applications. The web services are often hosted on an internal network, but with the increasing popularity of mobile or web applications, many web services are being exposed to the Internet. These factors combine to mean that an increasing number of threats are targeting such interfaces, meaning they should be included in any vulnerability analysis.

Features & Benefits

Benefits of Web Services Penetration Testing by NextZen Security

Web Services Penetration Testing helps secure the data being transferred between various systems. Attackers know that such data may be valuable and that many organisations fail to adequately secure their API’s and Web Services, making this a particularly attractive method to cause a breach.

The penetration testing team at NextZen Security has unrivalled breadth and depth of experience.
Our testers are certified and highly experienced, ensuring our approach aligns with industry-best practice, avoids system disruption, and protects the integrity of your data.

Partnering with NextZen Security will allow your organisation to:

Implement Actionable Remediations

Upon completion of the engagement, you will receive a comprehensive report detailing identified vulnerabilities. These will be prioritised according to criticality, so you can implement remediation steps to secure your valuable data.

Allocate Resources

All your efforts to secure your various applications and systems may account for nothing if your data is compromised as it journeys between them. Testing provides visibility over the security of data in transit, enabling adequate resources to be allocated to safeguarding it.

Reduce Risk

Your data is one of your most valuable assets. Don’t allow it to be compromised as it transfers between your organisation’s various systems. With insecure API’s and Web Services you run the risk of data breaches that can incur significant cost for your organisation, both financially and reputationally. Web Services Penetration Testing is an essential task to mitigate the risk of data loss.

Achieve Compliance

Data security is an essential component of many cyber security standards, such as PCI-DSS and ISO27001. Including web services within your penetration testing activities can help your organisation prove, achieve, and maintain compliance with a range of cyber security standards.

Gain Confidence

Know that your data is secure in transit, gives you confidence to expand the range of applications and systems in your environment, improving operational efficiencies.
