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 are a foundational element of innovation in today’s app driven world. From banks, travel, entertainment, retail and transportation to IoT, autonomous vehicles and smart cities, every web and mobile app depends on APIs. Without secure APIs rapid innovation would be impossible. Salt Security is the only patented solution to identify and prevent the top threat of API attacks using big data and AI.
