What is most valuable?

I think it's very valuable because of the support desk in one application. It protects us well. That is very important. In terms of security, it's mostly been enough until now. I had used them in my local work. I was playing with them and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I mostly used it when working in the banking sector. There are many bank connections going on every day, especially during the holiday season, which can be kind of tough. We need to straighten the books, which can include how much money… more»

What needs improvement?

From the last version, they have added more dashboard support, but there is still a lot they need to improve. The thing is, on the chart you can set it to forty seconds or one minute. That's fine, but if you hold any request it should be… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Apigee and API Connect. I found that CA is more stable than the others. When you are deploying code, you also need the previous versions. With CA I can track all the changes. It's more stable and reliable.

What needs improvement?

It is a little bit difficult to evaluate what needs to be improved at this point because we were evaluating the product. It is not the first name that comes to mind when… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Tyk has a whole lot of features. You could actually break them up into separate products, maybe like an ESB, the actual API, the security component with a security manager… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not switch products from what we were using after evaluation. We had hoped it would help us scale our options for deployment and reduce costs.

What other advice do I have?

In rating the product overall, I'll give it a seven out of ten. They could really improve on recognition of their brand name, their marketing and their overall appearance… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were using a few other products including WSO2 and IBM API Connect. Tyk looked like a good product. I think the only reason we didn't go with it was because, from a… more»
