Founded in 2017 in Austin, Texas.

We believe that the best security solutions derive from understanding the real and acute pain points affecting information security and risk teams today. This is why our initial core technology came direct from the trenches at The University of Texas at Austin and Georgia Institute of Technology.

As we continue our mission, we hope to also continue working with more security teams to grow our unique portfolio.

What does our name mean?

Secure, essential, scalable, but definitely not bitter.

In information security, a “salt” refers to random characters inserted into sensitive strings, like encrypted passwords in a database, to increase the difficulty of cracking them.

In addition, since antiquity salt has been a highly sought after source of seasoning and also played a fundamental role in preservation of food resources by protecting them from foreign, unseen pathogens. We also like the connotation of salt-of-the-earth which conveys a genuine and non-pretentious approach that we aspire to and feel is critical in the security vendor space.

Adding these uses of salt to the fact that we deploy our security products on the cloud, the name SaltyCloud captures our various goals of providing secure, essential, and scalable information security solutions that help our customer’s build cyber-secure ecosystems that protect against today’s security threats.
