SOA Software API Gateway
Simplified Security and Management

Accelerate API Deployment with Streamlined Security, Integration, and Mediation

Organizations are increasingly adopting APIs to deliver services through mobile, cloud and web channels. However, while it is becoming easier to expose and consume these services through APIs, enforcing consistent security policies, monitoring these services on a continuous basis, ensuring performance and high availability through an single integrated solution for APIs is often complex and time consuming.

The SOA Software API Gateway solution is delivered as a virtual appliance that streamlines management, deployment, development and operation of APIs, enhancing security and regulatory compliance through authentication, authorization and audit capabilities. It provides central definition and management of security, routing, reliability, mediation, auditing and other operational governance policies across multiple instances. The Gateway enables enterprises to standardize API and service delivery with high security, performance and availability. The Gateway also enables enterprises to rapidly publish their internal services and APIs to a cloud hosted developer community, significantly reducing time and cost.
