PALO ALTO, Calif., March 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Salt Security, the industry leader in API security, said today that it has been named to two of Y Combinator’s four 2023 Top Companies lists, including YC Breakthrough Companies and Top Private YC Companies. Salt was in the top 2.5% of all businesses’ that YC has supported in order to earn these prestigious awards. Instacart, OpenSea, and DoorDash are just a few of the now-ubiquitous businesses that are included in these Top 100 lists.
Being a leader in API security, Salt offers the most tested and developed solution to assist contemporary internet organizations in promptly identifying and resolving API risks. Salt captures the level of context required to identify and defend against API threats, including those identified in the OWASP API Top 10, by fusing cloud-scale big data and tried-and-true artificial intelligence (AI).
“We consider it an honor to be listed among the 2023 YC Top Businesses. In order to link businesses to essential data and services, APIs are at the heart of today’s modern apps, according to Roey Eliyahu, co-founder and CEO of Salt Security. “Since APIs are used to send more sensitive data than ever before and API attacks are becoming more sophisticated, businesses must deploy the proper API security measures to protect their assets. We appreciate Y Combinator’s investment in and support of our objective to safeguard consumer APIs so that companies may continue to develop swiftly and safely.
The startups were divided into four categories by YC this year: the top private, public, exited, and breakthrough firms. Private businesses and exits are organized according to their current fundraising round values, and each is valued at more than $150 million. The Breakthrough Businesses list highlights the rapidly expanding businesses that YC has doubled down on, meaning that each of them has gotten a substantial increase in YC funding in their post-Demo Day rounds.
The top startup accelerator in the world is regarded as Y Combinator (YC). More than 4,000 firms have received funding from YC since 2005, including several that are now well-known brands. You may access the whole list of YC firms here.
