Salt Security, the leader in API security, today announced that Salt Security’s API protection platform has won the Data Security category at this year’s 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Leveraging big data and ML/AI at the cloud scale, the Salt Security platform offers organizations unprecedented visibility and control to secure their API ecosystem. Salt captures the depth of context organizations need to identify and protect APIs with continuous detection of APIs and exposed sensitive data, intrusion detection and prevention, and advanced shift-left capabilities.
CRN’s Tech Innovator Award is a highly regarded recognition recognizing innovative vendors in the IT channel across 38 different technology categories ranging from cloud and storage to networking and security. Overseen by a panel of CRN editors, the selection process for this year’s winners is based on a review of hundreds of vendor products based on multiple criteria, including uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and best fit to the needs of customers and solution providers.
Salt Security’s API protection platform enables organizations to identify risks and vulnerabilities in APIs before attackers exploit them, including those listed in the OWASP API Top 10. The platform protects APIs throughout their lifecycle – build, deploy, and runtime phases using the cloud -Scale big data combined with AI and ML to baseline millions of users and APIs. By providing context-based insights across the API lifecycle, Salt enables users to detect attacker reconnaissance activities and block them before they can reach their target.
Salt Security is 100% channel aware. The company’s partner strategy focuses on aligning channel partner activity and growth by enabling customers to work directly with their trusted partners to get the best support, pricing, and value from the industry-leading API -Get security platform.
