The Problem

Security testing is a cornerstone of API Lifecycle Management. Yet, traditional security testing technologies are struggling to adapt to the design and architectural characteristics of APIs. The result? Most API development teams are waiting days or weeks for results, perform their security testing manually, or perform no security testing at all.

The Solution

With this workspace and its Collections, we seek to drastically improve this reality for the Postman community. Here you will find Collections allowing for the fast, automated and accurate testing of your APIs throughout the Postman lifecycle using WhiteHat Security's Intelligence Directed DAST (IDD). Not only will you be testing for vulnerabilities as you build and test your APIs locally using Postman IDE, you will also be empowered to automate API security testing within your CI/CD via our integration with Newman.

The Difference

So how does IDD accomplish this while not disrupting your continuous innovation?

  • It's Fast! - IDD scan times are measured in minutes, not hours or days. This enables security testing to be part of the CI/CD pipeline and deliver real time vulnerability findings.
  • It's Accurate! - Focus on accuracy is incredibly important in todays DevOps world. False positives are as important as false negatives as noise in scan results can slow down the entire process. That’s why "Evidence" is included with IDD's vulnerability results.
  • It's Easy! - No need to spend days with documentation or a product workshop. IDD is easy to use with no dependencies and minimal configuration. It also includes intelligence that automatically handles common challenges such as logins and complex session state.

Our People

While technically we're supposed to say "we are the 'Innovation Team' within WhiteHat Security", in reality, we're consumers of APIs on a daily basis, whether we know it or not... just like you. We are a diverse team of folks that have come together with the mission of playing a small yet important role of enabling the secure development of APIs so that we, as people, can have confidence in the security and privacy of our information as we continue to expand our personal consumption of APIs.
