Salt Security Formalizes Global Channel Partner Program

Salt Security, an API security company, announces the global expansion of its Salt Security Essential Partner Program, which will be instrumental in enhancing access to the Salt Security API Protection Platform, ensuring customers can protect the APIs fueling their digital transformation, application modernization, cloud migration and other digital initiatives.

Salt Security always has been 100 percent channel-focused – making this program more broadly available will expand the network of distributors, channel partners, consultancies and integrators already driving adoption of the mature and proven API security platform.

The timing is ideal to amplify the Salt Security Essential Partner Program given the company recently appointed veteran channel leader, Jon Peppler, as Vice President of Worldwide Channels. Peppler joins Salt Security from Bitglass (now Forcepoint), bringing decades of experience running worldwide channel programs for software startups with him.

Peppler will be responsible for driving the company’s global channel partner strategy and empowering organizations to innovate by securing the APIs at the heart of modern applications. He joins the Salt Security team of international sales leaders, including Anton Granic, VP of Worldwide Sales, and Sunil Dutt, Director of Channel Sales, EMEA and APAC.

“The Salt Security Essential Partner Program is a critical part of our go-to-market strategy, reinforcing our commitment to resolving critical business challenges at global scale in the face of growing API security threats,” Peppler said. “It is an exciting time to join Salt Security and expand this program, given the leadership position Salt holds in technology, customer penetration, industry recognition, and channel partner recruitment. The flexibility and scale of our program will help our partners and their customers innovate even as malicious attacks on APIs accelerate.”

The Salt Security partner strategy focuses on activity alignment and channel partner growth by enabling customers to work with their trusted partners directly to achieve the best support, pricing, and value from the industry’s leading API security platform.

The Essential Partner Program supports Associate and Professional tiers, based on the number of sales and solution architect certifications, pipeline value identified, and joint customer wins. It also includes best practice guidance for partners around rules of engagement, deal registration, technical enablement, and growth accelerators through incentives and marketing investments.

Salt will augment the program with additional tiers as it grows. The company also provides specialized support to help partners grow their API security business with healthy margins through the benefit of the company’s market leadership.

The proliferation of APIs to enable digital transformation and IT modernization has made them a prime attack vector and focus for malicious actors. Given these threats, Salt Security customers rely on resellers to provide them with trusted API security solutions. Salt takes a unique approach in the industry with its API Context Engine (ACE) Architecture combining cloud-scale big data with patented machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to secure APIs automatically and continuously.
