Salt Security named a Top 20 Cybersecurity Product with enhanced AI models

SAN FRANCISCO, April 27, 2023, Repost from Salt Security Blog and PRNewswire/ -- At RSA Conference 2023 this week, Salt Security, the leading API security company, announced that it has been named a "Hot Company" in the API security category in the Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) 2023 Global InfoSec Awards. Salt Security has been named a winner in the RSA Global InfoSec Awards for three consecutive years, winning as Best Cybersecurity Startup and Most Innovative in API Security (2021), Next Generation in API Security (2022), and now Hot Company in API Security!

The CDM Global InfoSec Awards honor information security innovators who provide unique and compelling products and services. Being recognized for our excellence in API security three years in a row provides a tremendous acknowledgement of the value and industry leadership delivered through the Salt Security API Protection Platform.

Salt Security Unveils AI Model Enhancements for API Security

As the creator of the API security category, Salt Security pioneered the development of software purpose-built to detect and stop today’s low-and-slow API attacks. It provides the only cloud-scale API data lake, with time-tested AI and ML to analyze API traffic in near real time to stop API threats. The adaptive intelligence of the Salt platform provides continuous insights for API discovery, attack prevention, and hardening of APIs.

At RSA, Salt Security also showcased its just-announced advancements in threat detection and improved API discovery. With our new capabilities, we’ve accelerated API threat detection and resolution with:

  • Enhancements to our core AI models – processing more API data faster into our patented API Context Engine (ACE) architecture for improved API threat detection and discovery.

  • Improved user intent detection – quickly detecting when an API user exhibits malicious intent, reducing false positives while ensuring accurate identification of true positives.

  • New threat severity analytics – enabling security teams to differentiate between high- vs. low-severity attacks to focus on the greatest threats.

  • A new Rapid Investigation mode – highlighting the most critical malicious attack events.

  • Advanced API discovery at scale – providing more accurate mapping of API endpoints to make it easier to inventory and understand APIs at scale.

As the pioneer of the API security market, Salt Security has the most proven and mature purpose-built API security platform, helping enterprises quickly identify and block API threats. With its powerful cloud-scale big data platform and time-tested artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, Salt Security delivers deep context and continuous analysis to detect and defend against today's increasing API attacks, including those in the OWASP API Security Top 10 list.

"Transferring high volumes of sensitive data, APIs are fundamental to every modern organization's digital infrastructure," said Roey Eliyahu, co-founder and CEO, Salt Security. "Yet API abuse continues to skyrocket as malicious actors target this expanding attack surface. Only our patented platform captures the depth of context over time needed to detect these attacks, which can unfold over days and weeks. We are honored to receive this award from Cyber Defense Magazine in recognition of the value we provide companies to prevent API attacks and strengthen their API security strategy."

The Salt Labs State of API Security Report, Q1 2023 found that attackers have upped their activity, with a 400% increase in unique attackers in the last six months. The Salt Security API Protection Platform delivers the deepest insights into API threats and vulnerabilities to quickly detect and block attacks. 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.

"Salt Security embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow's threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach," said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine. Winners of the Global InfoSec Awards were celebrated at the 2023 RSA conference.

Salt Security has been showcasing its award-winning API security platform, including just-announced enhancements to its AI algorithms and new platform capabilities for API attack detection and discovery, at the RSA Conference in San Francisco this week. It had been named a Top 20 Hottest Cybersecurity Product.
