What do you need security APIs for ?
This, That and the other thing what are Security APIs really good for ?
For one, Detecting and cleaning malware and viruses. Many malware API services are useful for detecting types of malicious files and code injections in web applications.
Get notifications and alerts quickly when a new application is infected with some 3rd party illegal code.
The Second useful thing of security APis are Being able to explore surface attack areas.
Certain Security APIs allow you to explore and audit DNS records, IP addresses and domain names.
This In turn, enables you to find abnormal changes to your DNS infrastructure and possibly prevent harmful activities such as domain hijacking. Other possibilities may include finding stale DNS records, reviewing SSL certificate information, etc.
Third on our list is being able to Explore the reputation of a website.
This type of security API is useful for detecting phishing domains or discovering pages that are related to uncommon downloads, infected networks, etc.
Fourth on our list is related to information fraud Investigations.
If you work for a public or private security agency, using security APIs will enable you to research for various fraudulent activities and help track down the culprits behind it. Integrate some text analytics, NLP and machine learning functions to help find and discover outliers.
Fifth is monitoring your brand and reputation.
Plenty of big time and smaller Influencers care about this. Small, medium and large Commercial enterprises worry about Brand reputation in various ways. Especially with social media outbursts by employees , founders and executives. Fake news and deep fake videos. So monitoring and keeping an inventory of your brands reputation is paramount.

We all know the seventh use case , bug and bounty programs and rewards ,
has been a popular thing in crypto and blockchain. Developers and hackers participate in these bug and bounty programs to show their skills and possibly earn money or a job with their knowledge and skills. Security APIs are the perfect tool for these white hat hackers seeking valuable reconnaissance information about their targets. Even capture the flag like events can be fun and interesting.
So there you go , security APIs and what they can be used for. Pagarba does IOT and hospital security audits , medical device and IOT penetration testing as well as facility security risk assessments.

Construction is the sixth deadliest occupation in the United States. This statistic may not surprise you, yet we seem to be ignoring safety.
Well it turns out that artificial intelligence can reduce workplace injuries by as much as 50%. In fact, AI has been shown to significantly reduce workplace injuries and fatalities in construction sites around the world.
Here are 3 ways artificial intelligence revolutionizes safety:
1) Monitoring dangerous situations and potential risks with AI & Computer Vision analytics
Automatically process billions of variables and dependencies to serve up precise answers in a digital twin like simulated intelligence platform.
2) Tracking dangerous tools & power tool maintenance lifecycles
The sensors and edge computing track how often workers use potentially risky tools like power saws or jackhammers, providing a window into their patterns of behavior and suggesting possible new strategies for preventing accidents and fatalities.
3) Automated visual inspections
Helps scheduling & automating inspections and identifying which areas need repairs first by utilizing smart phones, edge AI devices, exit CCTV systems & drones.
Computer vision & AI have shown to significantly reduce workplace fatalities around construction sites all over the world! Computer vision makes sure your tools are safe at home before they’re brought on site; AI powered autonomous vehicles monitor traffic conditions so unsafe routes don’t needlessly injure or kill anyone; automated hiring systems help keep our workforces diverse while also reducing bias.
Construction sites are dangerous places. It’s not uncommon for workers to be injured or killed on the job and that puts a huge burden on construction companies’ bottom lines as well as society at large. Fortunately, computer vision has proven itself capable of significantly reducing workplace fatalities by making sure all tools are safe before they’re brought onto site, AI powered autonomous vehicles monitor traffic conditions so unsafe routes don’t needlessly injure anyone and automated hiring systems help keep our workforces diverse.
If you have any questions about how safety & security measures can benefit your company in the long-term please feel free to reach out! We would love to hear from you if this is an area where we can offer assistance.
Ports, harbors & marinas can often pose hazardous risks due to murky and dark water conditions, which in turn makes it difficult for divers to perform biosecurity inspections.
The Ookeani – Luure underwater surveillance platform utilizes remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) is to improve safety and security for underwater surveillance inspections and capabilities.
Hazardous Risk to Divers and inspectors
One of Pagarba’s clients handles high risk diving and inspection situations and locations, where there is a high volume of departures and arrivals from domestic and international vessels. One of the clients maritime responsibilities is to manage the safety, security & risk factors due to marine pest invasion.
Many times the underwater locations like this can be dark, murky, and filled with kelp and seaweed and other debris so as to present very low visibility for the professional divers inspecting that area.
And when there are a high number of large and small vessels coming in and out of these ports and marinas, and the occasional visit from large predators like whales, sea lions, and sharks, these divers are at even higher risk and sometimes dangerous situations.
Underwater visual inspections powered by the computer vision & AI Ookeani-luure platform with the blueye robotics ROV
When a buffet of risks and dangers face humans during underwater inspections, Pagarba’s Maritime client needed a system and solution to complete tasks without this stress and worry. There is also future savings on high risk insurance liability costs. That’s why they turned to Pagarba Solutions to improve their visual inspections and underwater surveillance video analysis using the Ookeani-luure AI powered blueye robotics ROV.
This underwater ocean surveillance intelligence ROV platform has allowed them to perform far more in depth and detailed automated search and analysis visual inspections, detections, checks & precision predictions for invasive pests by using its computer vision and video intelligence capabilities. The team can discover, review, analyze and predict underwater challenges from their mobile app or tablet on the surface and ensure the safety and security of the professional divers. They can even run simultaneous inspections with multiple ROVs.
Not only are ROVs becoming more frequently used for these types of inspections, but Pagarba and some of their clients are researching and experimenting with autonomous underwater ROVs and discovering new ways to automate , analyze and optimize the use of a variety of different ROVs. Call it the Intelligent ROV surveillance platform for biosecurity and compliance with computer vision, AI powered video search and analysis – including survey designs and identification of specimens found in ports, harbors and marinas.
