Secure Your APIs with Salt's API Security Platform.

APIs are carrying more and more sensitive organizational data than ever before. Salt is the only solution that governs and protects your APIs across the entire API Lifecycle.

API Proliferation is a Monster Problem.

APIs are built expressly to share a company’s most valuable data and services. This makes them a lucrative target for bad actors. We’ve already hit the tipping point — APIs are now THE way in.

Expanding Attack Surface

Not only are APIs proliferating through organizations, but they are carrying more and more sensitive information. This extends the potential attack surface, making applications and data more susceptible to breaches, unauthorized access, and other cyber threats that want access to the information.

GenAI Accelerates the Risk

Most developers use GenAI to increase productivity. From a security perspective, the benefit has an unintended consequence; super fast creation and increased volume of APIs makes it challenging to discover and secure those APIs. Legacy technologies couldn't keep up before and are hopeless today.

Regulatory & Compliance Pressures

The increase in APIs also brings heightened regulatory scrutiny. Ensuring compliance with data protection standards (like GDPR, HIPAA, etc.) becomes increasingly complex and critical. But a company's own policies are also under pressure with little technologies available to help.

Everyone says they do API security. Salt is the only one who really does.

In reality, most others do a portion of API security. But to remain relevant, get into a hot space, or grow their reach, vendors of all stripes are claiming they do API security. You've got the tough job of sorting through all the noise — you need to get clear on what API security really is and the architecture needed to do it right. Salt gives you complete API security.

The OWASP API Top 10 — a starting point

Understanding that attacks themselves are different when APIs are the target is an important starting point for learning how to defend against them. The game has changed — these attacks are rooted in finding business logic flaws, and most solutions aren't up to the task.
