Cloudmersive
There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.

Let’s be real; Microsoft Word may be the go-to for creating and editing business documents, but it’s not exactly the prettiest or most presentable format. When it comes to presentability, PDF files win every time; they are tough to edit, so clients won’t modify the documents, and formatting from the original document can transfer seamlessly. The following API will make automatically converting DOCX files to PDFs a cinch.

To use the API in Apex, you will first need to download and copy the /client folder into your Apex project:

Download Apex Client

For the next step, you can call the…


Do you need to extract data from an HTML file? If so, we have an API that can easily assist in extracting resolved URLs (fully qualified if possible) from an input HTML file. To ensure the process runs smoothly you will need either the HTML file or the URL of a file to perform the operation on; you have the option to include the base URL of the page as well.

To get things started in Node.JS, we will run this command to install the SDK:

npm install cloudmersive-convert-api-client –save

Or, add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": { "cloudmersive-convert-api-client"…

Testing URLs on the front-end of a process is a simple action that can save you from future headaches. Using the following API, you can automatically test a URL for Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF) threats in Node.JS. This will ensure your web applications remain secure from these custom-made attacks.

To start the process, we will first run this command to install the SDK:

npm install cloudmersive-validate-api-client --save

Or, add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-validate-api-client": "^1.3.9"
}

Once the installation is complete, we are ready to call the function with the following code:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client')…

Is it just me, or do you feel like every day you hear about a new form of cyber attack? To guard against these threats, we will be discussing how to use an API to automatically scan files for viruses, malware, and other threats in Salesforce Apex. The best feature of this particular virus protection is that it will identify zero-day threats that aren’t listed in the database of known malware signatures.

To kick things off, you will need to download and copy the /client folder into your Apex project:

For the next step, you can configure…


If you have an older web application, there is a chance you could have a security risk lurking in the corners. Extracting links from an HTML file is an efficient method to identify other linked applications, related websites, or web technologies that could affect your business. To assist in testing this facet of web security, the following API will pull out the resolved URLs from an input HTML file.

To use the Cloudmersive API, run this command to install the client:

pip install cloudmersive-convert-api-client

Next we are going to configure the API key, instance the API, and call the function…


Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF) threats are yet another form of attack that businesses need to guard against. While a Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) targets the user, SSRF attacks specifically target a server by sending back-end requests from vulnerable web applications. To ensure this doesn’t happen to you, we have developed an API that will check an input URL for SSRF threats.

To use this API, we first need to install the SDK:

pip install cloudmersive-validate-api-client

Next, we are going to create an instance of the API and call the function with the following code:

from __future__ import print_function import…

While Excel and CSV are the most familiar and widely used data-storing formats, they can become cumbersome if the file content is too extensive. Converting your CSV file to JSON can enable easier usage for online formats that may be employed by your business applications or website. Our CSV to JSON API can be performed on any CSV file with little to no hassle on your end.

To begin the operation, we will first install the Maven or Gradle SDK. For this example, I will be using Gradle, so I will add the following in the root.build.gradle …


No matter what industry you’re in, Excel spreadsheets are an excellent way to display detailed and/or confidential data with clients. Unfortunately, Excel also has a history of being hyper-sensitive due to the potential complexity of the structure; formulas, statistics, and programming can be skewed by a careless stroke of the keyboard. This is where our Excel to PDF conversion API can be particularly useful, since PDFs are known for their ability to keep the quality and form of the original source material.

To start the process, we will first install the .NET Core SDK (.NET Framework available as well):

Install-Package…

Businesses don’t always fit into a standard design, so it makes sense to employ a file format that can be as dynamic as you are; PDFs are widely used and the perfect option for distributing documents to clients. Now let’s say you have a PDF of a brochure you want to make printable; to maximize its readability and usage, we have an API that can automatically and efficiently perform the operation for you.

To begin the process, install the Maven SDK by adding a reference to the repository in pom.xml:

<repositories>
<repository>
<id>jitpack.io</id>
<url>https://jitpack.io</url>
</repository>
</repositories>

Then, we will add…


If you have a CSV file with data that needs to be transmitted to a web application, you may find the process tough to navigate. But, if you convert the file to a JSON format, you will be able to preserve the integrity of the data, while improving the online exchange. The following conversion API can assist in simplifying your CSV to JSON file transformation.

First off, we will install the .NET Framework SDK (.NET Core also available):

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

Then we can configure the API key, instance the API, and call the function with the following code:
