With the growing footprint of APIs, there is a strong need for secure-by-design APIs. A design blueprint of an API would be a helpful start in determining the security standard of an API. Fortunately, APIs have that blueprint known as an OpenAPI Specification.

API Specifications play a crucial role in ensuring the security and functionality of APIs. The full Panoptica platform expands on the capabilities of the API Specification Evaluator, with deeper assessment of API specifications to ensure adherence to industry standards, compatibility with various systems, and overall robustness.

To get started, simply upload an API Specification (YAML or JSON format) file, and you will be presented with security insights of your environment. This tool leverages Panoptica, which is a CNAPP & CSPM solution at the forefront of providing advanced tools and solutions for securing APIs.
