09:00 EDT Contrast Security's API Security Solution Further Enhances Protection Against Vulnerabilities and Zero Day Attacks

Aug 9, 2022

News provided by Share this article Share this article Developers can leverage Contrast Secure Code Platform to build, test and protect APIs faster and more effectively while protecting applications from multi-million dollar incidents LOS ALTOS, Calif., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Contrast Security ( Contrast ), the leader in code security that empowers developers to secure as they code, today announced its enhanced application programming interface  (API) security capabilities  within the Contrast Secure Code Platform . It delivers the most secure way to build, test and protect APIs against vulnerabilities and zero days without sacrificing speed and time to market. The platform also addresses the full attack surface of APIs, including attacks that target the code-level API and can bypass its gateway, as well as vulnerabilities in the source code. The Contrast Secure Code Platform is the only API security platform needed to get secure code moving. It enables developers to:  Know their APIs: Gain visibility into their complete inventory of APIs running in their environments that are relevant, in development and exposed. Write secure API code: Remediate as they code with runtime analysis during functional testing to find unknown vulnerabilities. Secure the API supply chain: Identify security gaps in the software supply chain as well as find vulnerabilities in active third-party libraries, frameworks and services. Protect APIs from being exploited: Protect against zero-day attacks from day one without tuning or reconfiguration and receive actionable results with 6x more true positives in seconds. According to the Gartner report Predicts 2022: APIs Demand Improved Security and Management , "API security challenges have emerged as a top concern for most software engineering leaders, as unmanaged and unsecured APIs create vulnerabilities that could accelerate multimillion dollar security incidents." This is caused by other vendors in the market with solutions that lack visibility and accuracy, depending entirely on manual security testing that needs to be run by experts to triage and interpret the results. This leaves security teams unaware of the impact of breaches. "While Contrast has been finding API vulnerabilities and protecting against API attacks for more than eight years, we're confident that our continued development of the Contrast Secure Code Platform will provide developers with the highest accuracy results and most effective defense for their APIs," said Jeff Williams, co-founder and chief technology officer at Contrast Security. "There is a lot of noise and confusion in the market around protecting APIs and unfortunately traditional application security tools, such as SAST [static application security testing] and DAST [dynamic application security testing], lack the visibility and accuracy that developers need." The Contrast Secure Code Platform allows engineering teams to streamline their continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines and embed security protection into production APIs. As a result, teams can effectively and efficiently build APIs without having to sacrifice security or miss critical development deadlines. API Security through the Contrast Secure Code Platform is available to all developers today. To learn more about API Security and how to build a modern API security strategy, please visit our website  and check out Contrast's five-part blog series here . Contrast will also be hosting a live demo  at 9 a.m. PST / 12 p.m. EST on August 10 to discuss the securing APIs. About Contrast Security: Contrast Security secures the code that global business relies on. It is the industry's most modern and comprehensive code security platform, removing security roadblock inefficiencies and empowering enterprise developers to write and release secure application code faster. Embedding code analysis and attack prevention directly into software with instrumentation, the Contrast platform automatically detects vulnerabilities while developers write code, eliminates false positives, and provides context-specific how-to-fix guidance for easy and fast vulnerability remediation. Doing so enables application and development teams to collaborate more effectively and to innovate faster while accelerating digital transformation initiatives. This is why a growing number of the world's largest private and public sector organizations rely on Contrast to secure their applications in development and extend protection to cloud and on-premise applications in production.
