I work for an information security company. CA API Management is capable of using tokens for authorization to manage access control for the APIs.As an organization grow, you can use CA API Management for authentication purposes through the CA API Gateway. It allows for multiple identity providers with different Active Directories.The solution helped us to quickly publish and monetize APIs. I have used versioning responses to publish or send APIs to different customers with different versions.From a security standpoint, it works great. It is the right solution for us. It's lightweight, a software-appliance configuration which was easy to deploy and configure.There are a few assertions which are built-in for threat protection. I have used them for vulnerabilities, like for DDoS attacks, XML schema validation, IP restriction, and for cross-domain.Containerization and the monetization module are quite unique for an API tool... In addition, the development time and rollout time are pretty quick.The security checking authentication is our primary use case for this solution.The out-of-the-box security features are useful. Right now, you can just right-click and drag and drop the assertions with the rate limit. That, as well as the x-amount surge protection, is built in so we can bring that in.

One specific feature that we need is the ability to authenticate directly to the server with API data. It's not complex nowadays. This is a feature that we need and CA doesn't have it.They need a workflow for the API Developer Portal, where the process only allows requests to go to the correct person.The implementation of CA API Management was complex. It is a complicated solution. You have to know so much IT knowledge to do the implementation.The entire lifecycle management approach needs improvement: from the API management, development, deployment, some of the settings around the quotas, and some security policy applications, etc. for the APIs. We found the Apigee platform a lot more robust in that area.There are old algorithms that the tool does not support - and it shouldn't, in my opinion. But sometimes customers need old algorithms, from old use cases and old applications, migrated to the platform. At those times, there are hiccups that happen.The security protocols in CA's product, for financial services, weren't as good as those in API Connect.We have experienced technical difficulties with the product in the past.On the monitoring side, we need a better way to monitor it. CA has not given a clear understanding of what external tools we can use to do this.

APIs can be developed to provide security. We can show them in one single pane of glass, such as the CA API Management API Developer Portal. It is there that we can provide the monetization for their APIs and what is happening on third-party applications, like Paytm or BookMyShow.CA API Management has a licensing path. If you want more features, it requires more licenses and more installation time.It has a reasonable pricing model by instance.For what we are after, the pricing is okay. It is competitive.We weren't comfortable with the pricing of licensing. It was slightly more expensive than its competitors.I do not have experience with the pricing or licensing of the product.I think it's competitive. It's not that expensive when you compare CA with the Oracle product.I feel that it is costly for medium-sized companies.
