It’s one thing for us at Salt to say we’re the best in API security – it’s quite another for the team at API World to say it. And they just did.
Fiserv, DocuSign, VISA, IBM Watson – that’s some pretty good company to keep, and that’s who Salt is sharing the (virtual) stage with at API World next month, when Salt will receive the “Best in API Security” award.
This award, from the organization that puts on the world’s largest conference dedicated to APIs, takes industry recognition of Salt as the leader in API security to an even higher level. It’s our 12th award this year alone – and that’s after winning Gartner Cool Vendor, SINET 16, and CISO Choice awards last year. It’s especially fun that the board of advisors selecting the winners includes execs from three of our competitors…
What makes Salt the undisputed leader in API security? We
We all know “it’s good to be king” (hat tip to Mel Brooks and Tom Petty) – it’s especially good when the kingdom you’re leading is experiencing exponential growth. Gartner recently catapulted API security into much higher standing by formally adding API security as a core pillar in its Security Reference Architecture. Rather than nesting within the WAF or WAAP pillar, API security is now its own category.
We’re proud of the technology and the team we’re building here at Salt, and getting these industry accolades along the way sure feels good. If you want to see how Salt can keep your API-connected data and services safe, request a custom demo.
Dr. Anton Chuvakin, security advisor at Office of the CISO, Google Cloud, joined our recent API Security Summit. Dr. Chuvakin’s session – co-hosted by Salt Security's Michelle McLean – provided an in-depth discussion on why API security has become a “now” problem.
The monetary growth opportunities promised by APIs are immense, but to harness them, CISOs must ensure the protection of their APIs.
With the industry moving to microservices and API-driven applications, new security threats and attack vectors have emerged. The PCI Security Standards Council has worked to address these threats in its newest PCI DSS 4.0 standard.
