Salt also named Gold Winner in the API Management and Security category, for its ability to secure APIs across all phases of the API lifecycle
Salt Security, the leading API security company, recently announced that the Salt Security API Protection Platform has been named a Gold Winner in the Most Innovative Security Software of the Year and API Management and Security categories in the 17th Annual Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards. The company was also named a Bronze Winner in the Security Product and Service for Large Enterprises category. Salt Security earned this recognition among top cybersecurity and information technology vendors because its market-leading API security solution delivers unparalleled capabilities in discovering APIs and sensitive data, stopping API attacks, and remediating API vulnerabilities – securing APIs across build, deploy, and runtime phases.
“Many organisations don’t recognise the risks their APIs present, assuming other devices such as WAFs or API Gateways provide sufficient protection. Unfortunately, API breaches continue, costing companies in fines and reputation,” said Roey Eliyahu, CEO and co-founder of Salt Security. “These awards, especially for Most Innovative Security Software of the Year, underscore the role of API security in enabling businesses to innovate and operate safely using APIs to connect customers and partners to critical data and services.”
Salt Security’s inaugural research report, “The State of API Security – Q1 2021,” found that companies of all sizes lack sufficient API security despite the fact that APIs are critical to enabling revenue and innovation. The survey revealed that 66% of organisations admit to having delayed new application rollout because of API security concerns, 91 per cent had a security incident last year, and 54 per cent have no runtime security for APIs in place.
To address the API security gap, the Salt Security API Protection Platform secures the APIs at the heart of all modern applications. Supporting more use cases and environments than any other API security offering, Salt delivers the context enterprises need to protect APIs across build, deploy, and runtime phases of the application lifecycle. The Salt C-3ATM Context-based API Analysis Architecture combines complete coverage and an ML/AI-driven big data engine to deliver the rich context needed to protect APIs.
