Exploit the potential of your data in a secure, scalable environment. APIs make processes more efficient! And they optimize the use of existing data, wherever the data is stored. An API management solution helps companies maintain control of all interfaces and to optimize their use.
Why is API Management effective?
Many IT systems may also mean many APIs. To maintain control of their use, accesses and publication, an API management system is important. It means security for your company. Accesses and use of the APIs are protected, different versions of an API can be saved and organized centrally, public and private interfaces can be made available via a URL, and accesses can be controlled centrally. This way, your APIs are optimally secured and your company is protected against criminal attacks. You decide who has access to your data!
With an API management system, you can catalog, version and document all your deployed APIs, which are then published via gateways. A gateway refers to a central location where all queries to a system are collected. In addition to the basic security functions such as authentication, authorization, digital encryption, and digital signature, when calling up services, an API gateway uses the ‘reverse invoke’ security technique. This security mechanism reduces gaps to an absolute minimum.
In order to manage a large number of interfaces, APIs, plans and customers must be allocated to groups, called organizations. The users within an organization receive authorizations in the form of roles. For example, a user with the “API viewer” role can see all the APIs of an organization but cannot edit them.
