API Pentesting 

Build Secure APIs with Expert Pentesting

Find and remediate vulnerabilities in your most vulnerable asset – your API. Cyver delivers expert pentesting, with partners specializing in API and connectors.

Pentest API Connections 

Assess security and loopholes in API across your organization. Cyver uses manual review to research business logic, authentication, authorization, injection, and data interpretation, to ensure your API is secure. Plus, with full compliance with OWASP API Top 10, we deliver compliance-ready pentest reports. 


Our pentesters are experts in REST(ful) and SOAP API pentesting. Our network of pentesters also means we can reach out to an expert to perfectly match expertise to your API security needs. 

Authentication Pentesting

Fully test API authentication to ensure your security models are secure. Our manual approach means we can bypass security and authentication screens to reveal vulnerabilities. 


Assess how your API impacts the security of endpoints, no matter how many you have. We pentest connections to front-end apps, 2FA, mobile, web apps, and databases to help you stay secure.

Authorization Pentesting

We use manual pentesting to assess authorization in APIs and connections, with attention to permission and access controls to ensure your API doesn’t offer access to your systems or data.

Expert, Ethical Hacking 

We perform pentests to OWASP API Top 10 standards, map vulnerability findings to compliance norms, & deliver in our cloud platform.

Asset Management

Upload and share assets like IPs, URLs, Swagger or Postman files, authentication credentials, examples of calls and valid cases, etc. 

Onboard Your Team

Onboard to our platform to see real-time alerts, so dev teams can immediately work on vulnerability remediation. 

Vulnerability Metrics

Get more than a report with vulnerability metrics across assets, vulnerability profile, and CVSS scores for long-term management. 

Agile-Friendly Pentest Delivery

Put devs in control of API security with the timely information and communication they need to remediate vulnerabilities 


Get findings as tickets and manage them in Cyver’s platform or link to platforms like Jira to assign tickets in your existing tooling.

Assigned Tickets

Assign teams to vulnerabilities, export tickets to tooling, and track remediation so you always know what was fixed and when. 

Pentest Credits

Budget for pentests upfront, buy credits, and use them towards flat-rate pentests – so devs can align pentests with updates.  

Request a Pentest

Skip lengthy RFP processes and request a pentest, in the platform – using specs and assets from your last, for simple re-testing. 

Meet Compliance Obligations with Cyver

    Compliance Frameworks

    Cyver pentests using compliance frameworks and checklists to ensure we fully meet your compliance needs. 

    Findings as Tickets

    Collaborate on remediation with real-time chat and free retesting for 30 days after the initial pentest, to ensure fixes work   

    Compliance Reports

    We deliver reports with vulnerability findings mapped to compliance norms, and audit sections, to simplify audits. 

    PDF Downloads

    What is a Pentest-as-a-Service

    Pentest-as-a-Service combines our human expertise and insight with the convenience of cloud apps and findings-as-tickets. We organize pentests in our cloud platform, Cyver Core, and deliver pentest reports with tickets, so developers and compliance officers can remediate right away. Plus, we offer free insight tooling, so you can see remediation times, risk profiles, and even areas of risk.

    When Can You Start?

    In most cases, we can start your pentest within 2 weeks. In some cases, we can finalize and deliver your pentest during that time. However, pentest duration depends on the scope of the pentest, your assets, and environments.

    Cyver leverages a network of pentesters, allowing us to quicly scale to meet demand. When you need expert pentesters, we can help, and quickly. If you want a quote based on your specific needs and assets, book a demo now for a one-on-one conversation.

    How Much Do You Charge for a Pentest?

    Cyver uses a credit system to charge a flat rate for our pentests. That means costs are always transparent and you always know what you're paying for. Currently, we charge €329 per pentest credit. Pentests range from 2 credits for a simple 1-website test to well over 40 credits for a large and complex system. Visit our pricing page for more information. 

    What Does the Platform Look Like?
