Salt Security, based in Palo Alto, Calif., was founded in 2016 by CEO Roey Eliyahu and COO Michael Nicosia. The company, which was last valued at $1.4 billion in February 2022, offers what is known as an API protection platform to prevent cyberattacks by using artificial intelligence in a continuous and automated manner. API is short for “application program interfaces,’’ which have become critical to programming web-based interactions and have thus become a natural target for hackers.

in February 2022, Salt Security closed a $140 million Series D round led by Capital G, the independent growth fund controlled by Alphabet, Google’s parent company.
