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.
Having Forbes single out Salt Security as one of only 25 of the “Next Billion-Dollar Startups” testifies to the combination of both the significant lead we enjoy in the market and the enormity of the problem we solve.
