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

Pros
"This is a solid intrusion prevention system that combines a firewall and antivirus in a single solution.""In our buying companies' perspective, it was easier to use compared to other platforms. The markets were pretty familiar with the solutions.""Good at intercepting traffic and modeling APIs around that."

More Kong Enterprise Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the ability to have different packages based on the API keys. The same core system can have different packages based on different environments.""The reason why we selected the solution originally was because of its ability to have a gateway both on-premise and in the cloud. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.""The solution is a good general API manager. They have a few propriety features but are offering items that are standard in the industry as well."

Cons
"The OS upgrades are not as frequent as they should be and they are bulky.""There should be an easier way to integrate with other solutions, even though it's the same API solution layer. Comparability will be a good improvement.""They could focus more on pricing."

"The way agile life cycle is working needs improvement. I also want to see more support for open API standards. I want to see some improvement on the protocol transformation. That is quite missing now. These are the three main issues.""The security needs improvement, specifically, propagation of security to an API. Calling other APIs is something that is missing in the product and that makes us think about going to a competitor.""Policy management has been a bit of a concern."
