Salt Security Joins Wiz Integrations (WIN) to Augment Security Gap Analysis with Application Insights
June 2023 by Marc Jacob
Salt Security announced its partnership and bi-directional platform integration with Wiz, the leader in cloud security. This strategic partnership, part of the newly announced Wiz Integration (WIN) platform, will provide Salt and Wiz customers with a robust and holistic understanding of API threats and vulnerabilities that spans both application and cloud environments. This partnership enriches Wiz’s robust cloud security platform with API security data and context derived from the Salt Security API Protection Platform.
The Salt platform applies cloud-scale big data, and ML and AI to enable organizations to catalog their APIs, see where they expose sensitive data, detect and block API attackers, and provide remediation insights that developers can use to improve API security posture over time. Salt insights complement the posture and workload protections that Wiz provides for cloud infrastructure. Specifically, this integration will provide Wiz customers with application-layer visibility of API threats that exist in their cloud environments and enable those customers to consolidate and correlate API and cloud security insights in one aggregate location.
With this partnership, customers of Wiz and Salt Security will benefit from the following:
Automatic correlation of API and infrastructure security posture gaps and vulnerabilities in a single interface
Faster prioritization of vulnerabilities, spanning application and cloud infrastructure, equipping development teams with a consolidated list of necessary fixes to save valuable time and resources
Shortened remediation timelines and streamlined incident response for threat mitigation and posture remediation
Increased confidence in attack detection by correlating API, infrastructure, and cloud security events
The Wiz WIN partnership is designed to enable a cloud security operating model where security and cloud teams work collaboratively to understand and control risks across their CI/CD pipeline. Wiz is setting the industry standard in integrated solution strategy to maximize operational capabilities of organizations with partners like Salt in WIN.
According to the Salt Security State of API Security Report, Q1 2023, attackers have upped their activity, with Salt customer data showing a 400% increase in unique attackers in the last six months. Salt enables companies to identify risks and vulnerabilities in APIs before they are exploited by attackers, including those listed in the OWASP API Security Top 10. The platform protects APIs across their full lifecycle – build, deploy and runtime phases – utilizing cloud-scale big data combined with AI and ML to baseline millions of users and APIs. By delivering context-based insights across the entire API lifecycle, Salt enables users to detect the reconnaissance activity of bad actors and block them before they can reach their objective.
