Today Software AG shared the news about our joint partnership to improve API security. Salt has developed an integration with the Software AG Web Methods API Gateway to make it easy for our joint customers to augment the API management capabilities of Web Methods with the full lifecycle security capabilities of the Salt Security API Protection Platform.

The State of API Security report highlights that 100% of Salt customers had WAFs and API Gateways but they all suffer API attacks that get past those devices. API gateways simply aren’t architected to capture and correlate API traffic over time. That kind of rich context, spanning days, weeks, and months, is essential for identifying API attacks.
Salt leverages the Web Methods platform as an API traffic collection point. It then feeds that traffic into its cloud-scale big data engine, applying AI and ML to baseline what’s “normal” across millions of users and API calls. When the platform identifies an API attack, it sends a command to the Software AG platform to block the attacker, protecting the customer’s vital data and services.

The Salt Security API Protection Platform secures all APIs by preventing attacks and eliminating API vulnerabilities. Together with Software AG’s API management capabilities, our new partnership with Salt will help organizations discover and better protect their APIs against all types of threats.” – Suraj Kumar, General Manager API, Integration & Microservices for Software AG
