StackHawk Extends API Security Testing

StackHawk, a company that makes web application and API security testing part of software delivery, announced new enterprise capabilities, providing advanced optimization, scalability and governance controls to address the needs of large-scale customers. StackHawk’s enterprise features are designed to provide visibility, control and consistency across multiple teams and applications through scalable and automated application security testing.

StackHawk offers enterprise customers the ability to implement modern DAST and API security testing with control and visibility across various teams. Customers now have greater insights into which vulnerabilities they need to find and fix while remaining aligned with established guidelines and compliance requirements.

StackHawk’s innovation meets the needs of enterprise-scale customers looking to prioritize API and application security testing by building support for the Windows and Azure ecosystem. Organizations can leverage their existing tools and familiar environments while using StackHawk’s optimization features to match application security testing to modern developer release cycles.

This provides organizations developing and maintaining multiple applications with a security solution that can be distributed organization-wide, work with multiple tools and minimize disruption to product development and delivery.

However, capabilities that identify security threats and improve automation are at the top of IT leaders’ wish lists. StackHawk’s solution provides the answer to these needs, with new capabilities including:
