DeinDeal, a Swiss e-commerce retailer, has deployed the Salt Security API Protection Platform to secure the APIs driving its mobile and web applications.

According to the company, the Salt Security API protection capabilities enable DeinDeal to more rapidly innovate applications and services, especially over the past year as it expanded into food delivery and served new markets throughout Switzerland.

DeinDeal uses the automated discovery capabilities of the Salt platform to better understand how its internal teams, customers, and partners are using APIs. These insights have enabled DeinDeal to prevent attacks, protect customer data, and secure personally identifiable information (PII).

The Salt Security platform provides DeinDeal with automatic and continuous discovery of all APIs – across build, deploy and runtime – and easily captures granular details about each individual API to eliminate blind spots, assess risk, identify outdated APIs, and keep APIs protected as its environment evolves.

DeinDeal also relies on Salt Security to identify abnormal behaviors within its current ecosystem of APIs that may require further investigation and/or remediation.

This detection and blocking of API attackers is particularly important as Salt Security saw its customers’ monthly volume of malicious API traffic grow 211% over 2020, according to the Salt Security report, “The State of API Security – Q1 2021.”
