Security teams are accountable for securing their application with vendors that perform periodic scans. As organizations have more and more of their value exposed as APIs security teams need a seamless way to understand the risks with the APIs that they offer to ensure that HIPAA, PCI, EU or USA privacy rules are not violated.
APIsec was created with the mindset of understanding risk quickly, which for security teams is not fast enough.
Coordination meetings are painful, especially when you have to look at different tools and processes. APIsec solves this by integrating into trouble ticketing systems, so as issues are created, they can be opened into the system of record for developers and allow for quick response and close. When issues are closed APIsec goes in and validates that the issue is resolved closing all corresponding tickets.
“A further challenge of identifying potential security gaps is to not disrupt the development and test flow of the engineers. This means that the tooling needed to play within the existing DevSecOps infrastructure.”
