Industry’s First API Attack Surface Calculator Assessment Tool Honored for Helping Organizations of Any Size Understand their Attack Surface Exposures

Data Theorem, Inc., a leading provider of modern application security, today announced that 1105 Media’s Security Today brand, a leading industry media brand providing technology, education and solutions for security professionals, recognized its API Attack Surface Calculator with a 2021 CyberSecured Award in the Application Security awards category last month.

Launched in 2020 by 1105 Media’s Security Group, the CyberSecured Awards are independently judged and honor the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are identified as noteworthy in the transformation of cybersecurity. Introduced by Data Theorem last quarter, the industry’s first API Attack Surface Calculator helps organizations of any size understand their attack surface exposures. Delivered as a free self-service offering, the assessment tool is simple to use and conducts its first-level API security analysis in less than five minutes.

“It is always a pleasure to evaluate the IT security solutions entered in our product awards contest. As expected, the entries took security to the next level,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today magazine, and CyberSecured eNews. “The IT security products we see today are the guardians of digital networks. I am amazed at the brilliance, integrity and thoughtfulness each solution brings to the end user. With so many networking issues announced every day, the demand for robust security is absolutely paramount.”

Data Theorem’s API Attack Surface Calculator helps organizations begin to build a modern API security program and understand how each layer of a cloud native app contributes to the overall API attack surface. It provides a multi-step process for customers to answer questions about the different layers in the application stack. Following customer supplied answers, the Attack Surface Management (ASM) capabilities running inside of Data Theorem’s Analyzer Engine provide dynamically driven ratings around potential API exposures across the multiple application layers: client, data transport and cloud.

“Launched recently, we have seen significant interest in Data Theorem’s API Attack Surface Calculator, and it’s rewarding to have received a CyberSecured Award for Application Security, as determined by a panel of independent judges,” said Doug Dooley, Data Theorem COO. “Organizations today need a better understanding and measurement of their ever-increasing API attack surfaces that are amplified by modern web, mobile, and cloud-native applications. Data Theorem’s free API Attack Surface Calculator, which can be done in a self-service fashion and takes less than 5 minutes to complete its assessment, is an important first step in measuring an organization for the most prominent attack vector and attack surface exposures.”

This first-of-its-kind API Attack Surface Calculator is available for free from Data Theorem at It is an important attack surface management tool that is offered in conjunction with the API Security for Dummies e-book from Data Theorem, available at

Data Theorem’s broad AppSec portfolio protects organizations from data breaches with application security testing and protection for modern web frameworks, API-driven microservices and cloud resources. Its solutions are powered by its award-winning Analyzer Engine, which leverages a new type of dynamic and run-time analysis that is fully integrated into the CI/CD process, and enables organizations to conduct continuous, automated security inspection and remediation.
