RSA Conference, San Francisco – June 6, 2022 – Salt Security, the leading API security company, today announced that the Salt Security API Protection Platform won the “Next Generation in API Security” award in the 2022 Global InfoSec Awards from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM). The Salt Security platform provides companies with unparalleled API protection capabilities, including continuous discovery of APIs and exposed sensitive data, attack detection and prevention, and remediation details to eliminate API vulnerabilities.
"Competing in today's market requires continuous innovation. Modernization and digital transformation are more important now than ever before, and APIs are an integral part of TripActions' cutting-edge offering," said Prabhath Karanth, senior director of security, trust, and compliance at TripActions. "With so much business value riding on data protection and APIs, API security needed to evolve and modernize to keep up with the latest threats. Legacy solutions no longer offer adequate protection. Salt Security truly delivers the next generation of API security capabilities."
According to the Salt Security State of API Security Report, Q1 2022, 95% of organizations experienced an API security incident in the past 12 months. The Salt platform delivers comprehensive API protection across build, deploy and runtime phases of APIs, including defending against the attacks outlined in the OWASP API Security Top 10 list. With its API Context Engine (ACE) Architecture, a cloud-scale big data engine that applies machine learning and artificial intelligence, Salt Security provides its customers with the rich context needed over time to identify today’s low-and-slow API attacks and inform API discovery and remediation.
“APIs are the gateway to the modern enterprise and at the heart of most digital transformation, cloud migration, and architecture modernization initiatives, making them incredibly attractive targets for malicious activity,'' said Roey Eliyahu, co-founder and CEO, Salt Security. "Against this backdrop, the need for stronger API protection has increased, especially as traditional solutions such as WAFs and API gateways have proven ineffective in detecting and stopping API attacks. The Salt platform is the only solution that provides cloud-scale big data and real-time analysis across all application environments, pinpointing and stopping attackers in their tracks. This latest recognition from Cyber Defense Magazine underscores our leadership in enabling companies to prevent today’s sophisticated API attacks, enhance their API security posture, and mitigate API-related risks."
