APIs are becoming the primary way that businesses interact with their customers, reach new markets, and provide the global app development community with the tools to deliver business capabilities to customers. Atmosphere provides a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their APIs with the growing developer community. Atmosphere manages, monitors and secures companies' APIs ensuring that they deliver the level of service customers and partners require; the security of corporate and customer information and assets; and the integrity of the corporate brand.

SOA Software Enables Enterprise APIs for Business Partner and Employee Applications

SOA Software has added extensive enterprise API capabilities to its SOA Software Atmosphere™ product family to enable business to employee and business to business applications. Enterprises are increasingly making business applications available as APIs in order to drive business growth and expose new revenue and partnership opportunities, and ultimately to improve business efficiency. Open APIs allow external developers to build applications that leverage core business capabilities. Enterprise APIs are offered to a more limited group to enable more sensitive B2B or B2E (employee) applications. Both enterprise and open APIs are typically built on a foundation of enterprise SOA services, taking these services and productizing them with documentation, support, access provisioning, quality-of-service (QoS) management and other API-centric capabilities. Enterprise APIs introduce additional requirements to ensure the security and privacy of the API and the capabilities and data they expose.

API Security
By Roberto Medrano
September 21, 2012

There have been quite a few serious security incidents in cloud computing in recent years (see http://www.cloutage.org/ if you really want get in the weeds).

RESTing Easy - Securing the Most Popular API Delivery Platform
By Roberto Medrano
September 13, 2012

More often than not, with simplicity comes greater risk.
