As companies make the rapid shift towards digital transformation, APIs are leveraged to grow business and fuel innovation. However, many organizations, have relatively immature API security programs, thus creating a completely new attack surface. Gartner has stated that by 2022, API abuses will move from an infrequent to the most-frequent attack vector, resulting in data breaches for enterprise (web-) applications.
In addition to that, Gartner has just recently officially separated API Security from the WAF/API Gateway category, and created a new pillar for API Security! This means that you CANNOT address this massive gap with any existing technology. Which presents an opportunity to innovate in this space.
Salt Security has developed a complete API Protection Platform that delivers a modern and innovative approach to API security through three main capabilities:
- Find all APIs automatically and continuously to eliminate blind spots, determine sensitive data exposure like PII and stay protected even as your APIs evolve and change.
- Stop API attacks in real-time using Big Data and patented AI to identify attacks early, during reconnaissance.
- Eliminate vulnerabilities and improve security with prioritized, actionable insights for security teams and developers.
