The Salt Labs mission

Salt Labs furthers the broader Salt Security mission of enabling innovation through APIs by educating the broader market on the latest in API threats. Our research includes finding API vulnerabilities in the wild, documenting the tactics of threat actors, and helping organizations avoid or remediate the risk.

API security research is in our DNA – it’s how Roey and team first identified the need for a new generation security platform, one that could identify and stop API attacks. Salt Labs research educates practitioners on API security incidents and the missteps to avoid, making it safer for the world to innovate with APIs.

Our research

Salt Labs identifies API threats and vulnerabilities in the wild across organizations around the globe. Our in-depth reports document the steps of an exploit, including the processes and tooling, to reveal an attacker’s approach, the data to be gained, and the steps to follow to avoid becoming a victim. We also apply our research to improve the ML and AI algorithms at the heart of our API security platform, so all our customers benefit from our on-going research.
