More Kong Enterprise Pros →

"The most valuable aspect of Mashery is its stability.""The reason why we selected the solution originally was because of its ability to have a gateway both on-premise and in the cloud. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.""When we did the product evaluation, we saw that TIBCO Mashery offers end-to-end API life cycle management. It provides all API features that are required for managing the complete life cycle. It includes the developer portal and tools for API monitorization. The out-of-box security features that TIBCO Mashery provides are enterprise-grade, which gives it an edge over other API products.""The solution is a good general API manager. They have a few propriety features but are offering items that are standard in the industry as well."

Cons
"They could focus more on pricing.""Because it is open-source, it should be less expensive than others.""There should be an easier way to integrate with other solutions, even though it's the same API solution layer. Comparability will be a good improvement."

More Kong Enterprise Cons →

"The security needs improvement, specifically, propagation of security to an API. Calling other APIs is something that is missing in the product and that makes us think about going to a competitor.""They can fix some stability issues and probably make it more user-friendly so that not only an IT savvy person but an end-user can also easily navigate through this solution.""Policy management has been a bit of a concern.""I'd like to see TIBCO integrate authentication and security features into Mashery."
