Salt Security, a top-tier API security firm, has recently bolstered its senior leadership team with the addition of Ori Bach as executive vice president of product. Bach, a seasoned executive with over 15 years of experience spearheading product strategies at tech companies, will now lead the global product team at Salt, steering product roadmaps and new security integrations to support the increasing demand for Salt Security API Protection Platform.

Roey Eliyahu, CEO and co-founder at Salt Security, warmly welcomed Bach's appointment, stating, “We are thrilled to welcome Ori to the Salt executive team.

Eliyahu highlighted the company's commitment to helping firms quickly identify and mitigate API threats in runtime, strengthening existing APIs, and enabling companies to modernise their applications securely.

As per the State of the CISO 2023, a staggering 95% of organisations plan to prioritize API security over the next two years, marking a 12% increase from two years prior. Businesses are recognizing the necessity of tailored API security to protect their digital initiatives and sensitive customer data.
