Traceable is continuously learning about how data flows into and within your applications, which APIs have been added and changed, which services talk to which services. This is the unique Application DNA, and it is where you need api security and awareness in order to detect and prevent attacks.
API Discovery, visibility and transparency
A real time API directory – Automated api discovery, api inventory and classification of all APIs used by your applications, including shadow APIs, makes it easy for you to be aware of changes and evolving risks. Leverage data captured through Traceable to help meet PCI compliance requirements.
Resolve challenging API questions
Stay up to date on the state of your APIs and how they change across all your apps and manage your API risks. Which APIs are risky? Where are these APIs called from? Who invokes these APIs? What is the frequency of these calls?
Remediate and close vulnerabilities
Shift left and empower developers with real world threat insights to proactively improve code and improve web api security and rest api security posture.
Why traceable is better
Actionable insight into your current application and API posture, effectively seeing into the ‘DNA’ of your application and associated APIs. Traceable is continuously learning about nature how data flows into and within your applications.
In this article, I dig into the details about Broken Object Level Authorization (BOLA) — the most common and most severe API vulnerability today according to the OWASP API Security Project. Insecure Direct Object Reference (IDOR) and BOLA are the same thing. The name was changed from IDOR to BOLA as part of the project.
The majority of organizations rely heavily on third-party web applications connected through APIs to generate revenue and serve customers. In many cases, these web applications contain security vulnerabilities.
As part of DevSecOps best practices, modern application developers and security teams should borrow techniques from crime scene forensics to investigate and protect against attacks.
