SALT Security is first to market with its API Protection Platform, that detects and prevents zero-day API attacks with the power of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data.

APIs are at the heart of the infrastructure enabling inter-system communication of highly sensitive data. Attackers were the first to identify that APIs are a lucrative point of entry, as evident in the increased number of API security breaches with enterprises such as Equifax, Instagram, Snapchat, PayPal and many others.

The majority of API attacks target the heart of applications by manipulating the application logic itself. These attacks are easily missed by today's security measures, since the API calls may seem completely legitimate and benign. Therefore, modern attackers have an upper hand by flying undetected and under the radar.

About us

APIs form the foundation of the application innovation needed to drive business success today. Across banks, retail and transportation, IoT, autonomous vehicles, and smart cities, every web and mobile app depends on APIs. Without secure APIs, businesses cannot rapidly innovate. Salt Security has delivered the only patented solution to identify and prevent API attacks, using Big Data and AI to thwart this top threat to businesses today.
