Pros
"The most valuable feature in Amazon API Gateway is the itinerary release.""It is very helpful, with our API-based applications.""It's flexible. It was valuable.""All information and data needs to be sanitized before it enters a private domain and we use this solution to do this.""Its security feature is the most valuable because it is mainly a security solution. It has easy authentication and authorization, and its integration is also useful.""What I like best about Amazon API Gateway is that it's simple to use, easy to set up, and you can quickly get it up and running. It's a very user-friendly solution. I also didn't experience any issues in terms of Amazon API Gateway interface, integration, or monitoring. The solution runs smoothly.""It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway.""t is easy for integrations if it is deployed in AWS Services."

"The cloud version of the solution is very easy to set up.""Within the new version, webMethods API Gateway gives us an end-to-end lifecycle from the creation of the API up into the development, deployment, and promotion into production/live. The current end-to-end lifecycle of the API gives us enough authority and governance of the API. We know what are currently live services, what is in the testing stage of development, and what version that has been commissioned. So, the full life cycle itself gives us full authority and governance of the API.""This solution has given us a competitive advantage because we have better automation and insight.""In the API gateway, there is a new feature that allows us to filter logs within a payload. This has been a useful feature."

Cons
"The user interface, in general, can be better. The user interface for the entire Amazon cloud can be more friendly. There are some scenarios that are not really easy to manage and configure through the user interface.""I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support.""From a use cases perspective, you need to have an internal and external gateway. AWS can only handle external traffic so has to be used together with another solution.""The user interface could be improved, as well as customer support and having a local customer representative in a country.""Monitoring could be improved.""Currently, I'm not facing any issues with Amazon API Gateway, which satisfies my requirements. I'm pretty happy with what Amazon API Gateway offers, but as its pricing is on the higher side, that's one area for improvement in the solution. What I'd like to see in the next release of Amazon API Gateway is an improvement in the status checks you get from the monitoring feature of the solution. Currently, you get the number of requests received, the number of reports, etc., but if there are more details than what's given by Amazon API Gateway, that will improve the solution.""Amazon API Gateway can improve the user interface in some areas it could be more polished.""The integration could be improved."

"The configuring of the JWT token would be improved as it is a confusing process. We require more information on this part of the solution.""With performance, there is room for improvement in regards to if we would like to put another extra layer of security on it, such as SSL. This is affecting their performance quite significantly. They need to improve the process of managing the SSL and other things inside their solutions, so there will not be quite such a significant impact to the performance.""With respect to the API gateway, the runtime component, the stability after a new release is something that can be improved.""In terms of improvements, maybe on the API monetization side, having users able to create separate consumption plans and throttle all those consumption plans towards the run time could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Fees are volume-based."
  • "There are no licensing fees."
  • "I am satisfied with the price."
  • "There is an annual licensing cost to use Amazon API Gateway."
  • "Amazon API Gateway has various pricing plans, but I cannot give the exact cost, though I can say that it's expensive. On a scale of one to five, I'd rate the pricing for Amazon API Gateway as two, as the solution is one of the most expensive products in the market for API management."

  • "I do see a lack of capabilities inside of the monetization area for them. They have a cloud infrastructure that is pay per use type of a thing. If you already use 1,000 transactions per se, then you can be charged and billed. I see room for improvement there for their side on that particular capability of the monetization."
  • "This is not a cheap solution but, compared to other products such as those offered by IBM, the pricing is similar."

    Overview

    Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can create an API that acts as a "front door" for applications to access data, business logic, or functionality from your back-end services, such as workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), code running on AWS Lambda, or any Web application.

    Once your APIs are “out there,” hackers have a “way in” to your business. Lock that door! Protect your data, applications—even your company’s reputation—with robust API runtime security. The right API gateway will keep out wrong-doers and welcome only authorized consumers.

    With cybercrime costs surging to $2 trillion by 2019, look for the most impermeable API gateway you can find. You’ll need basic security features, like authentication, authorization, digital encryption and digital signatures. You’ll get that with Software AG’s end-to-end API management solution—and another lock on top.

    Our webMethods API Gateway uses reverse invoke, or inside-out, service invocations. This protective technique reduces the need to open holes in your firewall. It’s one more way we help you lock down your APIs—and protect your business from malicious attacks.
