Salt Security, the API security company, has expanded its partnership with CrowdStrike by integrating the Salt Security API Protection Platform with the CrowdStrike Falcon Platform. With this new integration, customers now can get a 360-degree view of API security risks with unique insights into the application-layer attack surface.
The combination of API runtime monitoring and AI-driven insights from Salt with CrowdStrike’s AI-powered protection capabilities gives organizations complete visibility into their API attack surface with context into the business criticality of threats. With this partnership, customers benefit from:
- API vulnerability and threat context: Additional intelligence from the Salt platform provides contextual information on API vulnerabilities and threats for application-layer security which enriches the Falcon platform
- API threat mitigation: Robust API threat mitigation with Salt detections integrated with the Falcon platform
- API threat management automation: Enhanced detection, investigation and response of API-based threats through automated policy management within the Falcon console
In September 2022, the CrowdStrike strategic investment vehicle, Falcon Fund, invested in Salt Security. Since then, the companies have worked together to enhance API discovery and runtime protection and enable security testing to harden APIs.
