With warm and sunny weather expected all week, a bunch of the Salt team is thrilled to be at RSA in San Francisco! We’ll get the chance to talk with security leaders about why API security has become a priority project, and we’ll get time to catch up with customers and each other. It’ll be a great week!
This year’s conference is already off to a bright start! Today we announced that Salt has won “Hot Company” in the API security category in the Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) 2023 Global InfoSec Awards. Salt has been named a winner in the RSA Global InfoSec Awards for three consecutive years, winning as Best Cybersecurity Startup and Most Innovative in API Security (2021), Next Generation in API Security (2022), and now Hot Company in API Security!
The CDM Global InfoSec Awards honor information security innovators who provide unique and compelling products and services. Being recognized for our excellence in API security three years in a row provides a tremendous acknowledgement of the value and industry leadership delivered through the Salt Security API Protection Platform.
As the creator of the API security category, we pioneered the development of software purpose-built to detect and stop today’s low-and-slow API attacks. We provide the only cloud-scale API data lake, with time-tested AI and ML to analyze API traffic in near real time to stop API threats. The adaptive intelligence of the Salt platform provides continuous insights for API discovery, attack prevention, and hardening of APIs.
At RSA, Salt will also showcase its just-announced advancements in threat detection and improved API discovery. With our new capabilities, we’ve accelerated API threat detection and resolution with:
Learn what’s needed to defend APIs in today’s modern digital environments. Come by the Salt booth at RSA (South Hall, #1535) for a demonstration of our new and existing capabilities and chat with one of our API security experts.
And if you’re on the floor, come have fun competing in our “API Defender” game! Test your skill and API security knowledge and win bragging rights as an API Defender. We’ll be giving away a Nintendo Switch to the best player of the day, every day, starting tomorrow. Come say hi!
The unsafe consumption of APIs can lead to security breaches, exposing sensitive data, user credentials, or proprietary information, as attackers may exploit vulnerabilities in API usage to gain unauthorized access, execute arbitrary code, or perform unauthorized actions within the system.
Improper Inventory Management is the ninth security threat listed in the OWASP API Security Top 10. By exploiting this vulnerability, attackers can gain unauthorized access to sensitive data, or even gain full server access through old, unpatched or vulnerable versions of APIs.
