Palo Alto, CA, December 8, 2022 – Salt Security, the leading API security company, today announced that the Salt Security API Protection Platform has been named a Gold Winner in the “Enterprise Product of the Year - Security Software” category in the 2022 Best in Biz Awards. The Salt Security platform, utilizing cloud-scale big data combined with AI and ML to baseline millions of users and APIs, provides companies with unparalleled visibility and control over their API ecosystem. Customers gain unique capabilities in continuous and automatic discovery of all APIs and exposed sensitive data, detection and blocking of even the most subtle and sophisticated API attacks, and detailed remediation insights to eliminate API vulnerabilities.

"APIs fuel modern innovation, enabling enterprises to streamline the creation and delivery of their digital services and achieve business agility faster,'' said Michael Nicosia, co-founder and COO, Salt Security.

We are honored to have our solution’s unique capabilities recognized by the Best in Biz Awards.”
