Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It's good that they aren't adding a lot of features like ESP, etc. It's okay with just being a gateway.""The most valuable features are the gateway and security features."

More 3scale API Management Pros »

"The solution is very easy to work with.""It's high-speed and it can be remotely administered via an API.""The API Connect gateway service and the SQL injection feature is good.""I like all of the features in this product and it does what it's supposed to do.""It can look for the various security threats, productions, payload scanning, and perform routing based on the content type."

Cons
"I believe the CMS part of it has room for improvement though. That is where you write a couple of things if you want to publish your API. It's based on liquid scripting, which doesn't seem like the obvious ones to script with.""It would be helpful to improve the customization features so that the customer can do it based on their own needs."

More 3scale API Management Cons »

"The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively.""The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.""Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""Making it more user-friendly would be an improvement.""Some pre-packaged connectors for integration with various applications, such as SaaS offerings, would be a useful addition."
