Penetration testing for APIs

APIs drive digital transformation, but they’re common targets for attackers. Rely on API-specific pen tests to identify potential flaws.

API-PTaaS

Don't let your APIs become risks

APIs speed software creation by letting developers hook into app data and business logic. But the unique access APIs have to apps makes them big attack vectors–90% of apps contain more risk in the form of exposed APIs than the UI itself. Bugcrowd API Pen Tests (a Bugcrowd PTaaS solution) plug directly into your dev lifecycle to find vulns that go undetected by old-school testing and scans, helping to ensure that your digital transformation journey isn’t cut short by a breach.

Find and fix common issues fast

Our API pen tests look for misconfigured services and DNS, logic errors, weak credentials, and more to find hidden flaws.

icon

Go deep and wide

Ranging from Recon to Exploitation, our API Pen Tests are deeply thorough for both coverage and meaningful results.

icon

Rely on battle-tested standards

Our methodology follows common testing standards such as OWASP, PTES, and OSSTMM.

Use the right pentesters and tools for the task

We combine human-driven testing by a curated team of experts, scanners, and custom tooling to get the high-impact results you want.

Curated Pentester Teams

Use a team your assets deserve

Other pen test providers rely solely on scanners or cookie-cutter teams of generalists regardless of your specific assets, environment, or needs–virtually guaranteeing low-impact results. Instead, we use the power of CrowdMatchTM ML on our platform to curate qualified, motivated pentester teams for your precise requirements, boosting high-quality results over other methods.
