We set out to empower customer success and innovation by securing every API. In doing so, we’ve created amazing tech, earned the trust of the most demanding customers, and won incredible industry accolades including Gartner Cool Vendor and SINET 16. And now, right on the heels of our Series A funding, we’ve raised a $30 million B round, led by Sequoia Capital, with Carl Eschenbach joining our board.
What does this round give us here at Salt? So much more than $30 million …
We are all so excited to move into this next phase of our journey. We’re fortunate to have Sequoia and Carl, along with Tom at Tenaya, Haim at S Capital, and Ali at Y Combinator, at our sides as we define and lead the API security universe.
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.
