42Crunch, the leading API security company, announced the release of the 42Crunch API Platform, a API security cloud platform to discover vulnerabilities in APIs and protect them from attack.
The 42Crunch Platform can protect SaaS, Web, or IoT APIs, as well as microservices. This follows the launch of the free API Contract Security Audit tool at APISecurity.io earlier this month. The tool helps API developers improve their API definitions that follow the OpenAPI Specification into proper API contracts. Now, with this latest release, customers have access to the full 42Crunch Platform.
The traditional approach in web application security requires customers to use a combination of products — such as SAST, DAST, WAF, RASP, and API management — to address different security concerns, in different network zones, and at different stages of the application life cycle. This approach leaves gaps and is difficult to operate, consolidate, maintain, and deploy, said 42Crunch.
42Crunch Platform aims to overcome these difficulties. With the platform, enterprises can centrally enforce and monitor corporate security policies, using tools that have been designed both to be API-centric and to work together. Security teams get a 360° view of the entire API portfolio, including audit grades, usage, prevented attacks, and potential vulnerabilities.
