Layer7 API Management Review

Standardizes our API deployment, improves security


What is our primary use case?

Managing all of our APIs and the security around them.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Standardization of our API deployment
  • Improve security

What is most valuable?

The Portal API helps us with deployments. It also helps to have a catalog of everything.

The replication is also a critical feature for us. It helps to have a more robust architecture and makes our systems are highly available.

What needs improvement?

The portal is not the most intuitive and the way things are displayed makes it difficult to find the information we need. We never completely read the info. The way it's written does not make me want to read it.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Lately, we have had a replication problem, but it's possible the problem is on our side. We are still unsure.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is fast and efficient.

How was the initial setup?

It was a complicated setup but we had help.

What other advice do I have?

You need a team to manage it.
