What a week we’re having – and it’s only Thursday! RSA has been action-packed, meeting with customers, showing off our new product enhancements, and booking time with new prospects. Interest in API security is running at an all-time high, as more organizations recognize what Salt saw years ago, that APIs entirely upend the security playing field!
And the awards keep coming – our second award of the week came today, with us winning a Stevie® Award for “Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year” in the 2023 American Business Awards®. On Monday we picked up our trophy for winning ‘Hot Company’ in API security in the Global InfoSec Awards.
But that’s not all! In between these two awards, CRN included the Salt Security API Protection Platform among the “20 Hottest Cybersecurity Products at RSA 2023.” To be acknowledged among such industry leaders as Palo Alto Networks, SentinelOne, Google Cloud, and our very own partner CrowdStrike is truly an honor!
Today’s award represents the first time Salt has been recognized as a Stevie winner in the American Business Awards program. Salt won a Silver Stevie Award in the “Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year” category. Judges include many of the world’s most-respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators. Being selected out of thousands of entrants for a Stevie Award testifies to the unique capabilities being delivered with the Salt Security API Protection Platform.
As we have heard every day at RSA, API security has become a critical concern for today’s digital transformation initiatives. Salt is proud to deliver a solution that gives organizations the context and adaptive intelligence that’s needed to quickly detect and block API attacks, so companies can continue to innovate safely.
There’s still time to visit Salt at the RSA Conference (Moscone South). Please stop by to say hello and speak with one of our friendly API security experts. If you aren’t at the show and want to connect or schedule a demo, go to https://content.salt.security/demo.html.
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.
