What is most valuable?

The most valuable features in Tyk Management are some of the API features. This includes the API versioning, the API catalog, and the API dashboard.

How has it helped my organization?

It really has not improved our organization as the product was never fully implemented in production. The intent was to have the product help us to transform our platform… more »

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 »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I 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 »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the load balancing with the circuit-breaker function. The virtual endpoint and distributing requests work well. It integrated well with other solutions, such as Datadog.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes when new features are released, they are not immediately stable. It can take a few months for them to catch up completely.

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

There are different versions and plans available depending on the requirements, so there is flexibility in terms of the pricing. Compared to other products, this is a cheaper solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Kong at one point but it was quite some time ago, so I do not have recent experience with it.

What other advice do I have?

Our customers are happy with the features and performance, and I have not heard any complaints with respect to technical support. Tyk only has a single product, so the length of time between updates is really short. For example, if there is… more »

What is most valuable?

The feature I find most valuable is that this solution allows us to manage our security. I like that it is open-source and that we can expand it in the future. We also have all the functionalities to manage our APIs. I like that I can manage the dashboard and that the solution offers the possibility… more »

What needs improvement?

I would like to see some additional features like having some extensions for .NET core because we use it for our back-end language.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used our own API management system in the past, but we decided to switch to Tyk.

What other advice do I have?

I will rate this solution a nine out of ten. If they add extensions for back-end development, I will give a rating of ten.
