The Salt Security API Protection Platform secures the APIs at the heart of all modern applications
APIs have emerged as the leading attack vector for applications today. The nature of API attacks – being low and slow as bad actors perform reconnaissance to learn an organization’s APIs – makes them impossible for existing technologies, such as API gateways or WAFs, to detect and stop.
The Salt Security API Protection Platform secures the APIs leveraging cloud-scale big data and AI/ML. It discovers all APIs and their exposed data, stops attacks, and eliminates vulnerabilities at their source.
Discover all APIs and exposed sensitive data - We find all your APIs, including shadow and zombie APIs, automatically. We also highlight all instances where your APIs expose sensitive data. Continuous and automated discovery ensures APIs stay protected even as your environment evolves and changes.
Stop attacks - We pinpoint and stop threats with patented AI that baselines legitimate API behavior and identifies attackers, during reconnaissance, to prevent them from advancing. We correlate all activities back to a single entity, send a single consolidated alert to avoid alert fatigue, and block the attacker rather than individual transactions, as other more limited API security solutions do.
Improve API security posture - We proactively identify vulnerabilities in your APIs, even before they serve production traffic. We also use attackers like pen testers, capturing their minor successes to provide insights for dev teams while stopping the attackers before they reach their objective.
The Salt platform deploys in minutes and does not sit inline, avoiding any performance bottlenecks for applications.
