CA API Management Review
As a financial services company, the security it provides is key for us

Primary Use Case

We use it for security.

So far so good. We have our own challenges - some monitoring and some performance related things - but at the same time, I think it's pretty good.

Valuable Features

The security that it provides, actually. Being in the financial services industry, obviously security is very important for us.

Improvements to My Organization

I'm part of an engineering team so this product coming with out-of-the-box security, that is valuable to our organization.

Room for Improvement

We are evaluating the next release, actually. We would like to see more stability.

Stability Issues

It needs to be a bit more stable. I think they see that, as Support is working on that. We have our own challenges related to the stability. For example, the log space filling up the entire disk because of gateway went down. CA is aware of this issue.

But otherwise, as I said, we have had a pretty good experience with the product.

Scalability Issues

We do not use it on a massive scale at this point, so it's pretty good.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's pretty good. It's been a fruitful experience so far.

Previous Solutions

We were transitioning from another product, DataPower. We switched because of the native support for APIs in API Management.

Other Solutions Considered

We didn't consider any other vendors.

Other Advice

What's important to us when selecting a vendor, support is the most important factor.

I would tell anyone who is researching this type of solution to go for API Management.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
