API security company Salt Security was named the winner in the Application Security category of the 2021 CISO Choice Awards. Selected by a panel of esteemed CISOs at some of the world’s largest organizations, the CISO Choice Awards honor security vendors who provide innovative, differentiated security solutions, valuable to CISOs and their enterprises. Salt enables organizations to accelerate their business innovation by providing full life cycle security for their external, internal, and partner APIs.
“Demand for stronger API protection is increasing exponentially, since legacy solutions including WAFs and API gateways address other challenges but cannot stop API attacks. Being recognized by leading CISOs for our pioneering work in this new security category underscores both the severity of the risks API-centric businesses face, as well as our leadership in enabling companies to mitigate those risks,” said Roey Eliyahu, CEO and co-founder, Salt Security.
According to the company, the Salt Security API Protection Platform offers best-in-class API security, enabling organizations to have automatic and dynamic protection of their applications. Through its patented big data engine that leverages AI and ML to understand API and user behavior, the platform delivers API security across all application environments, identifies and stops attackers early in their reconnaissance phase, and provides remediation insights organizations can use to harden their APIs.
As a result, organizations get immediate runtime protection and the opportunity to continuously improve their API security posture with testing during development and runtime insights for remediation recommendations.
