What is the API Discovery Service?

The API Discovery Service is designed to detect Rogue APIs that exist outside of corporate management. ShadowAPI detects SOAP, REST and even Web Socket APIs, helping you to build a centralised view of your API estate. With your APIs in one place, you can group and manage your API security faster. Also with role-based support you can even distribute remedial fixes to your wider team.

What Are The Risks?

Without a thorough and regular API Discovery process, your organisation could have blind spots, that if left unchecked, could put your organisation at a heightened risk of unauthorised data exposure.

Many IT teams fail to tracks all API endpoints, but when you have visibility into your API estate, you can then put controls in place to mitigate the risk.  If on the other hand, you don’t have visibility, then you can’t see who is accessing what and this is a very real and potentially damaging position to be in.

What Can We Do?

The ShadowAPI consulting team continuously sweeps your network perimeter, analysing every single port for web service communications. Suspected APIs are analysed and validated, and then added to your ShadowAPI dashboard. Alerts are pushed automatically, allowing for speedy escalation.
