Salt Security, the API security company, has announced that it has achieved Microsoft Azure IP Co-sell Ready status, which means that the Salt Security API Protection Platform can be sold and marketed by Microsoft sellers globally. By earning this status, Salt said it can provide its customers with a more streamlined deployment and management process for taking advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform. In addition, the Salt Security API Protection Platform will gain greater visibility both within the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and among Microsoft sales teams and partners worldwide.
According to the Q3 2022 State of API Security Report, malicious API traffic grew 117% over the past year, now accounting for 2.1% of all API traffic. Customers tap the Salt platform to discover their APIs, protect them during runtime, and improve their API security posture. The Salt Security API Protection Platform correlates user behaviour over time to pinpoint and stop attackers, using its rich context about all API usage to identify the reconnaissance activities of bad actors. The platform consolidates all pertinent information into a single attacker timeline generating a single alert, which allows incident response teams to quickly take action.
“Salt empowers organisations to drive digital transformation and business innovation initiatives with the confidence that their critical data and services are protected with the industry-leading API security platform,” said Gilad Barzilay, head of business development at Salt Security. “Microsoft Azure IP Co-sell Ready status further validates our integration with the Azure cloud platform and strengthens our commitment to our joint customers.”
The Microsoft IP Co-Sell Program enables Microsoft and partners to provide comprehensive solutions in a collaborative selling model to drive joint sales, revenue, and mutual customer success.
“Through Microsoft Azure Marketplace, customers around the world can easily find, buy, and deploy partner solutions they can trust, all certified and optimised to run on Azure,” said Jake Zborowski, general manager, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. “We’re happy to welcome Salt Security to the growing Azure Marketplace ecosystem.”
Salt Security applies cloud-scale big data, with the industry’s most time-tested AI and ML algorithms, to provide the insights needed for API security. Through its patented API Context Engine (ACE) architecture, the platform can identify the early indicators of an attack, stop attackers from advancing, and turn attackers into penetration testers, leading to valuable feedback for development teams to eliminate API vulnerabilities.
