Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The initial setup is pretty easy. Deployment only takes five minutes.""The technical support is very strong. We've had issues with the solution and configuration and we got very good support.""This solution is useful for making new APIs.""This solution gives you a unified way to have your API accessed.""In terms of most valuable features, it would say that it is really easy to start working with it.""Its security feature is the most valuable because it is mainly a security solution. It has easy authentication and authorization, and its integration is also useful.""It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway."

"Within the new version, webMethods API Gateway gives us an end-to-end lifecycle from the creation of the API up into the development, deployment, and promotion into production/live. The current end-to-end lifecycle of the API gives us enough authority and governance of the API. We know what are currently live services, what is in the testing stage of development, and what version that has been commissioned. So, the full life cycle itself gives us full authority and governance of the API.""This solution has given us a competitive advantage because we have better automation and insight.""The cloud version of the solution is very easy to set up."

Cons
"Like most Amazon services, and this one's the same, you're expected to effectively do your own support, and any other support is by emails, so it's quite limited.""It's hard to configure. There's a lot of options but it's very hard, it's very confusing.""There should be more videos and documentation about the new features that are released every month.""The only real problem is that you have to know a lot about what is outside of the API gateway in order to make the best use of it.""It would be useful to have a more complete development environment for the developer, with different integrative capabilities to manage all the life cycles for the API. I think the full version formula for that is really useful. They should improve the development environment for easier integration.""The user interface, in general, can be better. The user interface for the entire Amazon cloud can be more friendly. There are some scenarios that are not really easy to manage and configure through the user interface.""I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support."

"With performance, there is room for improvement in regards to if we would like to put another extra layer of security on it, such as SSL. This is affecting their performance quite significantly. They need to improve the process of managing the SSL and other things inside their solutions, so there will not be quite such a significant impact to the performance.""With respect to the API gateway, the runtime component, the stability after a new release is something that can be improved.""In terms of improvements, maybe on the API monetization side, having users able to create separate consumption plans and throttle all those consumption plans towards the run time could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is a pay-per-use service, where you only pay for what you use."

"I do see a lack of capabilities inside of the monetization area for them. They have a cloud infrastructure that is pay per use type of a thing. If you already use 1,000 transactions per se, then you can be charged and billed. I see room for improvement there for their side on that particular capability of the monetization.""This is not a cheap solution but, compared to other products such as those offered by IBM, the pricing is similar."

Overview

Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can create an API that acts as a "front door" for applications to access data, business logic, or functionality from your back-end services, such as workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), code running on AWS Lambda, or any Web application.

Once your APIs are “out there,” hackers have a “way in” to your business. Lock that door! Protect your data, applications—even your company’s reputation—with robust API runtime security. The right API gateway will keep out wrong-doers and welcome only authorized consumers.

With cybercrime costs surging to $2 trillion by 2019, look for the most impermeable API gateway you can find. You’ll need basic security features, like authentication, authorization, digital encryption and digital signatures. You’ll get that with Software AG’s end-to-end API management solution—and another lock on top.

Our webMethods API Gateway uses reverse invoke, or inside-out, service invocations. This protective technique reduces the need to open holes in your firewall. It’s one more way we help you lock down your APIs—and protect your business from malicious attacks.
