Context-based security for all your APIs

Only Salt delivers the context you need to protect your APIs across build, deploy, and runtime phases. We combine holistic coverage and an ML/AI-driven big data engine to provide that context to show you all your APIs, stop attackers during the early stages of an attempted attack, and share insights to improve API security posture.

The Salt Approach

After evaluating multiple API security platforms, we found that only Salt Security had an architecture that could deploy in any of our environments, identify all our APIs, and recognize and block attackers before they could do any damage.

The Salt Architectural Advantage

Holistic coverage

We collect all your API traffic – across load balancers, API gateways, WAFs, Kubernetes clusters, cloud VPCs, and app servers - to dynamically provide a full inventory. We deploy with no app or network changes and require no configuration or tuning.

AI-powered big data engine

Every one of your APIs is unique. Salt applies ML and AI in our big data engine to baseline your APIs and isolate anomalous behavior, differentiating between changes to APIs and malicious activity. By applying the context we learn, we can avoid false positives.

Context-based detection

Salt combines our holistic coverage and big data engine to discover all your APIs, see the sensitive data they expose, find and stop attackers, and capture insights for development teams to improve your API security posture.
