Salt Security, an API security company, has announced that Jemena, an energy provider across the east coast of Australia and the Northern Territory, has chosen Salt to protect its critical gas and electricity infrastructure.

Integrating within Jemena’s AWS environment, Salt says that it will provide the energy company with a purpose-built and AI-driven security solution for API discovery, posture management and threat protection.

API security

According to the company, using their solution, Jemena can now:

  • Continuously discover all APIs in its ecosystem, including shadow APIs, for a complete API inventory
  • Understand the data being carried across all APIs, to prevent accidental exposure of sensitive data
  • Prevent data exfiltration and account fraud, protecting its customers’ PII data
  • Capture insights learned in runtime to help developers harden the company’s APIs
  • Generate accurate API specifications to streamline the process documenting APIs and keeping that inventory up to date

“We anticipate that our API traffic will nearly quadruple in the next year alone. Salt enables us to easily mitigate the risks inherent in our rapid evolution as we continue to aggressively build out our API platform,” said Daniel Gordon, Cybersecurity Architecture Lead at Jemena.

“Salt has already provided us with tremendous insights into the data we are sending over APIs. In addition, because Salt seamlessly integrates with our Kong, ServiceNow and Splunk systems in our AWS environment, we were able to get up and running in minutes.”

Strengthened posture

“We are honored to be selected by Jemena to strengthen its API security posture, so the company can focus on delivering innovative digital solutions for its customers,” said Roey Eliyahu, CEO and Co-Founder at Salt.

“We commend Jemena for recognising the security risks presented by APIs early in its application modernisation journey as it made API security a necessary pillar of that program from the very start.”
