APIs are critical to the application development process and essential to competing in the digital economy. Organizations face the challenge of embracing the innovation and agility culture and accelerating business goals while balancing risk. APIs allow the development of third-party applications to utilize enterprise services and data, allowing you to reach customers across multiple platforms through a network of applications. An API management platform is essential for the security and access needed for these services.
An API management platform allows for:
- a layered security framework
- controlled versioning to remediate efforts against security threats
- risk mitigation through virtual patching
- security metrics to improve overall security efforts
