APIs represent a major target in today’s application environments, and Salt partners are helping their client get ahead of this significant risk. Over the past 12 months, Salt Security has grown its partner program in many dimensions, reflecting the increasing need and demand for dedicated API security. Highlights of the program success include:
150% increase in active partners worldwide
94% increase in partner-initiated pipeline
Over 400% increase in deal registrations
Market expansion in southern Europe, Middle East, South Africa, and Latin America
Essential Partner Certification Program
Technical training has always been a foundational element of the Salt Essential Partner Program. With today’s news, Salt is formalizing that training into the Essential Partner Certification Program, which includes online sales and technical training support. This program reinforces the Salt guarantee to deliver the highest level of value to its global partners. The program benefits the Salt partner community by supporting education and building key technical and sales skills.
The Salt Essential Partner Program includes two tiers: Authorized and Professional Partner. Both levels have access to a vast library of API security resources to assist in sales and joint marketing efforts, as well as in-depth technical training about top API security vulnerabilities and the Salt Security API Protection Platform.
The Salt Security API Protection Platform enables companies to identify risks and vulnerabilities in APIs before they are exploited by attackers, including those listed in the OWASP API 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. Salt captures the depth of context that organizations need to identify and protect today’s ever-expanding API ecosystem with continuous discovery of APIs and exposed sensitive data, attack detection and prevention, and advanced shift-left capabilities.
