Data Theorem Introduces Industry’s First API Attack Surface Calculator

PALO ALTO, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that it has introduced the industry’s first API attack surface calculator to help organizations of any size understand their exposure to the attack surface. Offered as a free self-service offering, the assessment tool is easy to use and performs its first-level API security analysis in less than five minutes.

API attack surfaces are inherently dynamic in the public cloud. Hackers take advantage of this API reality to help organizations breach and extract data. Organizations need to better understand and measure their ever-growing API attack surfaces that are amplified by modern web, mobile, and cloud native applications. Data Theorem’s API Attack Surface Calculator can help organizations get started building a modern API security program and understand how each layer of a cloud-native application contributes to the attack surface. Global API.

According to Gartner in its API Security: Protect your APIs from Attacks and Data Breaches webinar, “Gartner predicts that by 2022, application programming interface (API) attacks will become the most common attack vector, causing data breaches for corporate web applications. Already, many well-known API security vulnerabilities have affected a wide range of organizations … Many recent API data breaches have exploited multiple application layers in order to extract data. Understand how the exhibition[s] at each layer of the application stack can lead to a breach.

The new API Security Calculator provides a multi-step process for customers to answer questions about different layers of the application stack. As a result of customer responses, attack surface management (ASM) capabilities executed in Data Theorem’s analysis engine will provide dynamic assessments regarding potential API exposures across multiple application layers. : client, data transport and cloud.

“This free API attack surface calculator, which can be done on a self-service basis and takes less than 5 minutes to complete its assessment, is an important first step in measuring an organization for attack vectors and most important attack surface exposures, “said Doug Dooley, COO of Data Theorem. “At no cost, organizations can take advantage of Data Theorem’s differentiated ASM capabilities and benchmarking insights that provide sensitivity ratings by attack surface layer that help customers determine next steps to address potential API exposures. ”

This one-of-a-kind API attack surface calculator is available today for free from Data Theorem at This is an important attack surface management tool that is offered in conjunction with Data Theorem’s API Security for Dummies eBook, available at white-papers / api-security-for- nuls /.

Data Theorem’s extensive AppSec portfolio protects organizations against data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web infrastructures, API-driven microservices, and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning scan engine, which leverages a new type of dynamic and runtime analysis fully integrated into the CI / CD process and enables organizations to perform continuous and automated security inspection and remediation. .
