API to test SSL/TLS security for PCI DSS requirements and NIST guidelinesJanuary 5, 2016
High-Tech Bridge opens a free API to test SSL/TLS security for PCI DSS requirements and NIST guidelines.
High-Tech Bridge, a leading provider of web application security, is pleased to open a free API to test security and reliability of SSL/TLS implementation on any service for PCI DSS requirement, NIST guidelines and various industry best-practices.
Free SSL/TLS security testing service was launched by High-Tech Bridge in October 2015, enabling anyone to test any service working over SSL-encrypted protocol (e.g. HTTPS, POP3S, IMAP3, SMTPS, LDAPS, FTPS, etc). Since then, almost 75’000 people tested their servers and significantly improved reliability and security of their data encryption, including leading email providers.
High-Tech Bridge has also recently implemented a Live SSL Security World Map showing the state of security of recently tested SSL/TLS servers located in all over the world.
Ilia Kolochenko, High-Tech Bridge’s CEO and Chief Architect of ImmuniWeb® web security testing platform, says:
“At High-Tech Bridge we like sharing our knowledge and skills with other people, enabling them to make their technical infrastructure more secure and robust.
The new API will enable everybody to test reliability and security of their servers – not only web server, but many others such as email. Today many people associate SSL/TLS encryption only with HTTPS, but actually, there are far more protocols that rely on SSL encryption. Usually people forget to test security and reliability of non-HTTPS services, our free online testing service and the free API will change this situation.
We are currently working on other free online services aimed to make Web a safer place, stay connected.”
