Salt Security, the leader in API security, today announced it has joined the Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program as a Build Partner. Through the partnership, users can now access the Salt Security API Protection Platform directly through the Google Cloud Marketplace. This gives Google Cloud customers the ability to quickly and easily consume the Salt Security API Protection Platform and get rich context for API discovery, intrusion detection and prevention, and shift-left capabilities.
As a Google Cloud Build Partner, Salt Security offers Google Cloud customers unparalleled visibility and control over API traffic. The Salt platform uses cloud-scale big data combined with AI and ML to baseline millions of users and APIs, providing continuous and automatic detection of all APIs and exposed sensitive data. Salt also uses its unique architecture to detect and block even the most subtle and sophisticated API attacks, including those featured in the OWASP API Security Top 10 list. To improve API security over time, the Salt platform also supports shift-left practices, including OAS analysis, pre-prod testing to identify security vulnerabilities, and detailed remediation insights gleaned during runtime to help developers harden APIs.
“By joining the Google Cloud Marketplace, Salt reaffirms its ongoing commitment to strengthening the protection of sensitive enterprise data and files in the ever-evolving Google Cloud ecosystem,” said Gilad Barzilay, Head of Business Development at Salt Security. “By integrating Google Cloud environments into the Salt platform, customers can see and protect all APIs running in those environments through dynamic API discovery.”
Salt Security offers a full range of features available in Google Cloud environments including:
Identification of all executed APIs and the sensitive data they expose
Runtime protection to locate and stop exploits against production APIs
Visualization of all API call sequences, allowing organizations to analyze user behavior to identify operational or security challenges
Threat hunting capabilities within detailed attacker timelines
Attack simulation capabilities for APIs under development to identify security vulnerabilities before APIs are released into production
The ability to provide run-time remediation insights that developers can use to improve the security posture of APIs
