Key DeinDeal challenges:

  • API-first focus enabled consolidation across web and mobile apps – required augmentation of “classic security” WAF and bot management tools
  • Needed context into API activity to understand how customers were using apps and to differentiate between good and bad behavior to stop attacks

Key DeinDeal use cases:

  • Dynamic API discovery: Salt provides DeinDeal with an updated inventory of all its APIs and exposed sensitive data
  • Attack prevention: DeinDeal is constantly updating its website by changing APIs, and Salt automatically blocks any attacker attempting to abuse a vulnerability
  • Remediation insights: Salt provides details about API vulnerabilities that DeinDeal developers can use to improve API security posture
