Salt is first to market with its API Protection Platform, that detects and prevents zero-day API attacks with the power of Artificial Intelligence and Big Data. The Secful platform deploys in under 8 minutes and requires no manual configuration. Attackers have identified APIs as a lucrative point of entry, as evident in the increased number of API security breaches with enterprises such as Equifax, Instagram, Snapchat, PayPal and many others. Zero-day API attacks target the heart of applications by manipulating the application logic itself. These attacks are easily missed by today’s security measures, since the API calls may seem completely legitimate and benign. Therefore, modern attackers have an upper hand by flying undetected and under the radar.
