As we write in our blog, 95% of API Breaches are Caused By This, most security vulnerabilities in your API are related to “functional errors” or “human errors.” The actual act of hacking is rarely involved in most of the major API breaches you’ve seen or read about in our blog. What is important to note is that there are functional tests that can help you capture some of those vulnerabilities before they are pushed live.

Option 1: Leverage the JDBC component on the API Fortress platform to connect with any JDBC-compliant database including PostGres, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL. Option 2: Use an API Fortress helper app to convert most popular databases, CSV and other files into an API, which API Fortress can then use for data-driven testing. Data-driven testing is critical in validating that APIs meet your needs for reliability, resiliency, and performance.

Nordic APIs wrote a great article, with input from industry experts, about the security threats to watch for in 2020. In the story, they mention the usual suspects such as stealing credentials and mass overload (i.e., DDoS) attacks. It’s a great read, and the seriousness of those threats cannot be understated. What is understated, however, is the much larger threat that we all ignore: The vast majority of security failures are caused by human error.

Most API errors are not caught within 24hrs because API tests aren't detailed enough.
