Traceable tests in real-time based on live traffic, with capabilities to generate and run tests on old traffic. It never generates tests for APIs that are inactive for a long time, or those that are never called. In other words, it is all about targeted testing on the active APIs with data that is close to actual parameters when the APIs are invoked at runtime. In addition, Traceable allows you to make pre-prod testing more efficient using production/runtime information.
Traceable's API Security testing enables "closed loop" API Security with numerous integrations (including CI/CD) for different teams, which make it easy to deploy into your environment with full automation, which reduces the complexity often associated with API security and application security tooling.
Legacy AppSec tools such as DAST scanners don’t cover APIs. With Traceable, you get the complete API call flow when the vulnerability is detected, to be able to fix the issues correctly. Since the API catalog shows you the overall risk with regards to internet exposure, conformance and sensitive data flow, the vulnerabilities can be prioritized taking these important criteria into account.
It is typically more expensive to find software flaws in production vs. pre-prod. With Traceable, you're able to reduce cost, from FTE and other resource-intensive activities, often associated with finding and fixing vulnerabilities in APIs late in the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC).
