The world leader in API Security.

Our founders

Roey Eliyahu and Michael Nicosia founded Salt in 2018 when they realized a huge new security risk was being created as applications were being broken into their component parts (APIs) to deliver great customer experiences. And they have been proven correct. Currently, APIs are one of the most attacked targets for any business and the greatest risk.

Through Roey and Michael's leadership, Salt now provides the industry’s only AI-infused API security platform that offers protection across your entire API Security journey from discovery to posture management to run time threat protection.

Our mission To protect every API in the world with Salt Security.


The Salt leadership team is made up of security industry experts and IT veterans with over 150 years of cumulative experience. Every day they live our company values with an unwavering focus on customers and solving their most pressing security problems.
