A big win for CA was the expertise of the local country support plus having support staff on site in a matter of hours, if required.

I work for an information security company. CA API Management is capable of using tokens for authorization to manage access control for the APIs.

As an organization grow, you can use CA API Management for authentication purposes through the CA API Gateway. It allows for multiple identity providers with different Active Directories.

The solution helped us to quickly publish and monetize APIs. I have used versioning responses to publish or send APIs to different customers with different versions.

From a security standpoint, it works great. It is the right solution for us. It's lightweight, a software-appliance configuration which was easy to deploy and configure.

This improved our organization, because it gives the management data to discuss for the next course of action and it suggests what to work on, as the next thing.

There are a few assertions which are built-in for threat protection. I have used them for vulnerabilities, like for DDoS attacks, XML schema validation, IP restriction, and for cross-domain.

Containerization and the monetization module are quite unique for an API tool... In addition, the development time and rollout time are pretty quick.

The out-of-the-box security features are useful.
Right now, you can just right-click and drag and drop the assertions with the rate limit. That, as well as the x-amount surge protection, is built in so we can bring that in.

The security checking authentication is our primary use case for this solution.

API discovery using CA Live API Creator is helpful for integrating with multiple backends, for discovering and kickstarting the API creation process. It is a very good feature.

It is able to withstand the number of API calls and handle different API requirements to secure, transform, log, and track API usage patterns.

The Portal API helps us with deployments. It also helps to have a catalog of everything. The replication is also a critical feature for us. It helps to have a more robust architecture and makes our systems are highly available.

Security is the most important parameter of the solution, for me, because whenever you are exposing your APIs to third-parties, it is critical that the data remains anonymous and that data is retained within the system, that it is not leaked. CA API Management provides good security features.

One of the features that the tool provides is the ability to simply onboard new APIs to an existing security platform. We build all the policies for security upfront, and then we can add those policies pretty simply and straightforwardly to any new API that gets developed in the enterprise.

The most valuable feature is the security with its out-of-the-box policies.

Key features include: lightweight mediation, transformation from JSON to XML and XML to JSON, API portal and API key management, the Developer Portal, and Circuit Breaker is a cool feature, too.

We can create multiple orgs and set up policies and management. We can also integrate with an APM solution
