APIs are at the core of open banking, enabling financial institutions to standardize how they create and connect to an ecosystem of providers to exchange financial data. To a large degree, open banking has ushered in a democratization of banking across the globe and this has all been possible thanks to APIs.
With the proliferation of APIs in all modern applications, understanding the ins and outs of APIs is more critical than ever.
Today we’re thrilled to announce that Salt has added yet another award to the case. This one is a GOLD for the 2021 Globee Disruptor of the Year award.
Today we’re kicking off a new tech talk video series called Building Context, where we’ll be covering a range of topics around APIs and API security.
As APIs have increased in prominence and as a target for attacks, organizations have become more aware of the need for proper security, but as with adopting any new technology, misconceptions persist about how to get it right.
Columbo was a master of context. The lieutenant was famous for his catchphrase “Just one more thing,” heard countless times by suspects as he chipped away at a case, gathering small, obscure pieces of the puzzle and putting them together to form the bigger picture and ultimately solve the case.
On a recent webinar with Security Boulevard, we were fortunate to host Nir Valtman, Finastra head of product and data security, to share insights into his API security journey. You can view the entire session on the Salt YouTube channel, and here are some of the highlights from the discussion.
Changes to APIs create new challenges for security teams. See what should be top of mind for any security professional tasked with protecting APIs.
The reality is, APIs today are very different from the web APIs of the early 2000s, and these changes impact the way we need to think about the API security landscape.
I recently tuned into a CISO panel discussion and one of the panelists said something that struck me – “Application security today is less about the applications and more about the APIs.”
The OpenAPI Specification (OAS) is a way to describe and create API documentation. Learn some of the ways dev and security teams use the OAS and why it falls short when it comes to securing your APIs.
Organizations are working hard to “shift left” with security and improve the security of code. Learn why in APIs, improving security during build and initial deployment cannot provide the full answer.
Salt Security co-founder and CEO Roey Eliyahu joined the Technado Podcast this week to discuss arguably one of the most vulnerable things security teams often overlook: APIs.
In episode 5 of API Security With A Pinch Of Salt, we talk about JSON Web Tokens (JWTs), an open standard (RFC 7519) that defines a compact and self-contained way for securely transmitting info between parties as a JSON object.
Episode number 4 of API Security With A Pinch Of Salt is here. In this episode Chris and Ran talk about what attackers are going after when they target APIs and what they can do if they find and successfully exploit a vulnerability.
Get ready for episode number 3 of our video series called API Security With A Pinch Of Salt. In this episode, Adam and Chris answer the question - WAFs, what are they good for?
It’s time for episode number 2 of our video series called API Security With A Pinch Of Salt. In this episode, Adam, Chris and Ran dig into the topic of the importance of API documentation.
Today we kick off a video series called API Security With A Pinch Of Salt where we dig deep into API security. In this first episode, Adam, Chris and Ran tackle the topic of using API Gateways for Security.
Are you wondering what Salt Security does, what challenges we solve for, and how we do it? Check out this explainer video that answer all of those questions in just over one minute.
The Open Web Application Security Project has been around since 2001 and is best known for the OWASP Web Application Security Top 10 which has set the standard for how orgs have approached security to protect traditional web applications.
In college, a good friend of mine got deeply involved in the martial art Aikido and instead of directly attacking, the defender would wait for a move from their opponent, like a lunge, and harness that momentum to take control.
At Salt Security one of our philosophies is to provide solutions that help simplify processes, and save time, rather than introduce additional complexities. This is especially important when it comes to security.
Whether you realize it or not APIs are everywhere around us and they exchange sensitive data constantly, making them a rich target for attackers, which explains why we’ve seen a significant increase in attacks targeting APIs in recent years.
RSA Conference 2019 is just a week away and we couldn’t be more excited. 2019 has been a big year for us already and we continue the momentum with RSAC 2019.
Confidence is important when you decide to engage with a vendor. You want to know that vendor is able to deliver the service and you want to have confidence that your data is secure in their hands (or cloud as the case may be).
