The Free API Discovery & Monitoring Tool

Auto-Discover & Monitor Your Enterprise APIs  

API Shark Features

Fully-Automated

Automated API
Catalogs

Automate your API discovery to build a complete inventory of your enterprise API assets. Better yet, automate the generation of your API specifications in the leading industry standard: OpenAPI/Swagger.

api-shark-3

Proactive
Risk Assessment​

Automatically generate API blueprints to identify common API risks, such as improper authentication or token re-use. No need to upload your API specification, let API Shark discover it for you.

api-shark-4

Deep API
Monitoring​

Deep API inspection delivers visibility into real-time API calls and API payload metrics. Review API calls to identify risky behavior, such as geographic origin and access to critical assets.

Deep-Structured-Data

Seamless
Deployment

Standalone tool. No change to code, no need to use shims, and no change to network makes setup a breeze.

Automated API Discovery & Risk Assessment

Automatically discover ALL APIs to your application services including Shadow APIs. Enables API Risk assessments of your attack surface.

Enterprise API Catalogs with API Blueprints

Eliminate manual API registration by automating the creation of OpenAPI specifications for continuously discovered APIs

Deep API Metrics Monitoring

Start monitoring your applications to the API Payload level. API Shark goes deeper than API URL and HTTP headers, enabling you to set your target/dimension to the data within your API payload. For e.g. a API JSON Key or Key & Value within an API Request payload.
