We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This is not a cheap solution but, compared to other products such as those offered by IBM, the pricing is similar."
"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."

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.
