Salt Security, the API security company, has 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 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.

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
