API Security Leader Recognized for World-Class Product Innovation in the 11th Cyber Defense Magazine’s Annual InfoSec Awards during CyberDefenseCon 2023
ORLANDO, FL October 26, 2023 – Salt Security, the leading API security company, is proud to announce that it has been named the ‘Most Innovative API Security’ company from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.
“Salt Security protects the APIs that form the core of every modern application,” said Roey Eliyahu, co-founder and CEO at Salt Security. “We’re thrilled to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine during CyberDefenseCon 2023, where the Top Global CISOs exclusively gather by invitation only. This is another testament to our dedication to delivering the simplest, most comprehensive, and effective API security offering.”
Digitalization has generated many security risks, the top among them the application programming interface (API). According to the Salt Labs State of API Security Report, Q1 2023, 94% of organizations experienced security problems in production APIs in the past year, with a 400% increase in unique attackers overall in the last six months. The Salt Security API Protection Platform is the only API security solution that combines the power of cloud-scale big data and time-tested ML/AI to detect and prevent API attacks. With its patented approach to blocking low-and-slow API attacks, only Salt provides the adaptive intelligence needed to protect APIs.
“Salt Security embodies three major features we judges look for with the potential to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
