We’re entering a new season of fall, but here at Salt, it seems like it’s always awards season! We continue to receive accolades for the Salt Security API Protection Platform – all year round! This time we have been honored with the “Best API Security” award in the 2023 API Awards. This represents our 15th company and technology recognition in 2023 and follows recent awards including “Best API Security Solution” in the renowned 2023 SC Awards, “Cybersecurity Solution of the Year” in the National Technology Awards, and “Hot Company in API Security” in the Global InfoSec Awards.
Run by API World, the API Awards rely on an advisory board of industry experts to choose the winners. The 2023 Awards span 20 different categories, celebrating technology innovation, adoption, and reception in the API and microservices industry. This win marks the second year in a row Salt has been honored in the API Awards – and being chosen for “Best API Security” is especially gratifying to the team.
Salt was the first to recognize that API attacks differ – and those differences mandate a new approach to security. We saw early on that traditional security tools, such as WAFs and API gateways, would lack the needed capabilities to fully protect the rapidly expanding API landscape.
That understanding led to the cloud-scale AI-powered Salt Security API Protection Platform. The Salt patented architecture is unique in that it can:
It’s rewarding to be honored for our technology innovation. However, it’s more rewarding to understand the difference we are making for our customers – enabling them to deliver digital services and applications safely and securely.
Customers often tell us they had absolutely no way of knowing all the APIs in their systems before Salt. Salt makes them all visible, and that discovery is the critical first step in any security protection. Our AI-driven architecture also delivers ongoing context they need to determine whether a threat exists. Only AI has the ability to quickly and easily analyze millions of API calls over time to provide that adaptive intelligence, and only Salt has had its algorithms in market for so many years of tuning and learning.
It’s extremely important to make sure your OAuth implementation is secure. The fix is just one line of code away. We sincerely hope the information shared in our blog post series will help prevent major online breaches and help web service owners better protect their customers and users.
We want to thank our customers, partners and friends for the calls and messages to our team showing your concern and support.
