I have heard complaints that people say this product does not have good security, but that is not true. There is an expectation that you can use it with other Amazon services to provide security, as well as other functionality. This is a great product. It has ease of use and a full breadth of functionality. I would say that the Amazon platform, in my view, is the best compared to third-party products. The only real problem is that you have to know a lot about what is outside of the API gateway in order to make the best use of it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to first read the documentation and follow the steps. Make a use case, create a proof of concept, and then migrate it to production environments. It's pretty easy to use. This is a good product, but there is always room for improvement. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

The user interface is easy enough to use. I don't really have any complaints about it. In terms of advice for implementing and using, I would say you should make sure you've got good internal skills. I would rate this solution 8 out of 10.

I would rate this solution a five out of 10. If there was a better configuration, I'd give it a higher score.
