Salt Security, the leading API security company, today announced that the Salt Security API Protection Platform has won the "Best API Security Solution" category in this year's 2023 SC Awards. Now in its 26th year, the SC Awards recognizes outstanding solutions, organizations and people driving advancements in the practice of information security.
Salt Security pioneered the API security market. Its proven and mature API security platform empowers organizations to easily and quickly detect the reconnaissance activity of bad actors and block them before they can successfully reach their objective. With its powerful cloud-scale big data and time-tested artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, Salt delivers automated and continuous analysis and the adaptive intelligence required to identify and defend against today's increasing API attacks, including those outlined in the OWASP API Security Top 10 list. These protections enable organizations to prevent fraud, secure their own and their customers' data, and ultimately protect revenue.
"APIs represent the critical communications link that transports the data powering all of today's digital innovation," said Roey Eliyahu, co-founder and CEO, Salt Security. "Because APIs carry such vast and valuable amounts of sensitive and personal data, they have become a huge attack target for cybercriminals. However, the nature of API attacks differs from traditional attacks. Salt was the first to recognize the need for a different security approach, and we are honored to have our approach validated with this SC Award for Best API Security Solution."
According to the Salt Labs State of API Security Report, Q1 2023, 94% of survey respondents experienced security problems in production APIs in the past year, with 17% stating their organizations suffered a data breach as a result of security gaps in APIs. The Salt platform delivers the deepest insights into API threats and vulnerabilities to quickly detect and block attackers. By applying its ML and AI algorithms, Salt can capture and baseline all API traffic over days, weeks, and even months, providing real-time analysis and correlation across billions of API calls to protect organizations from API threats.
"This year's SC Award winners reflected our industry in flux," said Tom Spring, SC Media's editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance. "Winners demonstrated uncanny market agility and brought innovative solutions to help their customers stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated adversaries and emerging threats."
