  • Detect attack vectors in your API / REST API with ease
  • Use an automated tool for continuous security testing and embed it into your dev process
  • Set it up in minutes and get extensive security reports
  • Integrate with more than 20 systems and tools


API vulnerability scanner features


Create and verify your scan target.



Configure the credentials for the system and the application.


CI Integration

Create a webhook and start a scan via the CI Integration.


Set notifications

Integrate a chat notification system (Slack, Mattermost, Hangouts, and many more.)


Download the report

Get reports with remediation guidance, risk assessments, and solutions for every vulnerability discovered.



API vulnerability scanner benefits

  • Download PDF, JSON/XML, and CSV reports and easily sharing them with team members, executives, and clients.
  • Reduce the risk of being hacked and protect your users from OWASP Top 10 listed vulnerabilities.
  • Scan third-party components in your web application and thoroughly assess their security level.
  • Run automated API and Microservices scanning.
  • Integrate our vulnerability scanner easily in your workflow and dev pipeline.


API vulnerability reports

The API Vulnerability Scanner Report shows you how our automated tool tests, identifies, classifies, and provides remediation advice while saving manual security checks and pentest budget hours.

Extensive Vulnerability Findings

The report starts with a vulnerability overview of the scan target, the severity of the exposed vulnerabilities, and a checklist of the exploited attack vectors and status of the executed scanners.

Remediation Advice

Each found vulnerability features a risk classification, explanation, and advice on fixing the issue.

Findings Checklist

For easy marking of which exposure is already fixed or noted.

Continuous API Security

More reasons for API Continuous Scanning

Automated Pentesting

Perform regular black box pentests on your web assets and spend less on infrequent manual penetration tests.

Cybersecurity Risk Reduction

Benchmark your next release against OWASP Top 10 and other known vulnerabilities.

Schedule Scans

Match vulnerability scanning to your agile dev cycle.

Ensure Compliance

Scan every new release before deployment and ensure compliance with regulations and standards (HIPAA, GDPR, ISO, and many more).

Faster Vulnerability Detection

Detect and mitigate vulnerabilities quicker by scanning your web assets regularly.

Integrated Dev Pipeline

Integrate vulnerability scanning into your dev process and environment and shift security left.

API Security

Which are the API security best practices?

  • You should expose just the necessary data
  • Be always informed about the latest cyber security trends & vulnerabilities
  • Use always authorisation and authentication
  • Security certificates should always be set
  • Standardising proper JWT validation
  • Use JSON Web Tokens only Internally
  • And auditing the APIs constantly are the best practices to ensure your API’s

How to run API Penetration Testing?

You need to configure a project and verify the target. Then it just starts scanning and lasts 2 minutes for the report results.

What is a Web API Security Token

Access tokens are used for token-based authentication to allow applications to access APIs. After the user is successfully authenticated and authorized to access, the application receives an access token and then passes the access token as credentials when calling the target API. The given token informs the holder of the API token that it has been authorized to access the API and perform specific operations specified by the scope granted during authorization.
