    The trend of cyberattacks has grown a lot in the past few years, and with the increasing need for online systems, it may increase even more in coming years. So, every company must secure its systems against such attacks, and penetration testing is an effective option.

    Penetration testing (Pen-testing) tests your system by emulating cyber-attacks on the system, network and applications. Thus, you can see the vulnerabilities of your system. It can be automated or manual, but in either case, it shows the vulnerabilities of your IT infrastructure.

    Why is Penetration Testing Important in Cyber Security?

    With cyberattacks becoming more frequent, a cost-effective solution is required, and penetration testing makes a great option. Here are some reasons why it is important today..

      API stands for Application Programming Interface. It helps in connecting two or more systems at the same time. Companies use this kind of software to connect buyers to sellers.

      There are going to be different types of API data. One will be non-sensitive, so there would be no need to secure it. Some companies share sensitive data daily, like a TLS company that requires to secure their API. Without securing their API, anyone can hack their data.

      Hacking API doesn't sound safe; therefore, it is vital for companies that use API interfaces for sharing data daily they should take some precautionary measures. In further detail, we will be discussing the reasons for securing your API and how you can secure your API.

        The zero-trust policy is a data sharing model that follows the "Do not trust" policy. According to this method, devices, users, and applications within or outside a particular network set by a company's security professional are not deemed trustworthy. Compared to the castle and moat model, the zero-trust policy is more efficient and protects the valuable asset of a company.

          OTP stands for the one-time password or one-time passcode and is a form of multi factor authentication (MFA). Almost every website or application now supports the functionality of the OTP due to rising security concerns. When you create a new account on a website or an application, or even if you are an existing user of any particular app, you can enable the OTP to protect the misuse of your data and identity theft.

          Once enabled, the system then asks you to put in your email address or mobile phone, over which it sends a code each time you enter your login credentials. You then must enter that code alongside your credentials to successfully log into your account. If the OTP you received does not match the entered OTP, the system will give you an error, and you will not be able to log in successfully.

            The modern-day web apps depend on a shorter delivery time with fewer cost expectations. Thus, API usage has been highly boosted in the past few years. While there are obvious cost, time, and effort-related benefits for the developers, there are some security concerns.

            The Open Web Application Security Project® (OWASP) is a nonprofit foundation that works to improve the security of software. Through community-led open-source software projects, hundreds of local chapters worldwide, tens of thousands of members, and leading educational and training conferences, the OWASP Foundation is the source for developers and technologists to secure the web.

              Today most of our lives rely on the cyber world as it brings many functionalities. However, unfortunately, many cyber crimes make things very risky for everyone. While there are different solutions to protect data integrity, API security is one of them. Here you will learn why API security must be a top concern for everyone.

              What is API Security

              Many cyberattacks are done on the APIs. So, API security is the practice that prevents attacks on different APIs. APIs play a great part in the backend of applications; their protection is extremely important to protect data storage and transfer.

                The cybercrime rate is getting higher day by day. If there is no security over the internet, then there is a possibility that anyone will be able to have access to your data. Now there are different modern user identity check solutions that would keep your data safe from illegal access. The cybercrime rate is getting higher, so the identity check solutions are also getting updated.

                Without modern user identity checks, no one would be able to keep your data safe. Modern user identity checks are pretty important nowadays and pretty necessary. If the identity check solution is tough, then no cybercriminal would be able to get access to your personal information.

                  When a password-protected system was introduced, it was the safest way for people to keep their important data safe from illegal and unknown approaches. People used to set difficult passwords, and most of the time, they forgot them.


                  After that, they will have to go through a procedure to change the password again. Now Passwordless authentication feature has been introduced to make things easier and more convenient for you. It is a much safer option so far.

                    Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a security feature that requires two different factors to access your account. This includes something you know (a password), and something you have (your phone). 2FA is used to protect sensitive data like bank accounts, credit cards, social media accounts, etc.

                    2-factor Authentication (2FA)

                    2FA is a security measure that requires two different factors to complete an action. This is done to prevent unauthorized access to your account. In order to log into your account, you need to provide both something you know (your password), and something you have (a physical device).
