Overall Satisfaction with Salt Security API Protection Platform

We have deployed Salt [Security API Protection Platform] across the entire enterprise to have better visibility around all of our APIs. This is including several different cloud architectures and both in house and 3rd party applications. Salt [Security API Protection Platform] has helped us inventory our APIs and see any attacks and type of data being accessed through these APIs.
  • Easy deployment
  • Excellent visibility into activity on APIs
  • Inventory! It helps you find things you didn't know you had
  • Some customized deployments can be difficult
  • Reporting functionality across the enterprise and not just per environment needs improved
  • Better attack handling options needed
  • Inventory
  • API monitoring
  • SDLC integration
  • The inventory of API assets and volume of calls was not available previously
We tried controls offered by the IaaS providers but these were hard to manage and did not provide the visibility we wanted. We also protected APIs with a normal WAF but this was only helpful for assets we knew about and API attacks were not caught by the WAF.
