Further information

Salt is a modern automation and orchestration framework. It is unique amongst the common frameworks in that it is fully event driven. 

Salt can be used to automate cloud deployments or on-premise infrastructure, switches, firewalls, load balancing, application deployments etc.

It is hugely fast and scalable due to being built around an event bus. This enables some unique use cases particularly favouring Security Operations. 

For example, any machine with a salt agent deployed on it can listen for specific events on a host machine, and respond with a specific set of actions, e.g. failed login attempts trigger messages to a SIEM, critical file or system settings tampering can be detected and instantly remediated.
