"The most valuable feature is the load balancing with the circuit-breaker function."

More Tyk Pros →

"The licensing fees should be cheaper.""Could use clearer configuration when it comes to API policies.""They're trying to implement versioning and trying to be able to manage different versions of your API all at the same time, but they're not doing that just quite right yet.""Sometimes when immediate support is required, it isn't available.""The portal where we publish the APIs could be improved. Maybe this is because we didn't configure it. It is quite easy to bypass API management because we have a lot of information shared on the portal, where we publish our APIs. I worry there is potential for a security breach in the API publishing. There needs to be more security available on terms of the way we publish them.""They should improve the inbuilt policies that they have and that should properly create a deployment architecture as well.""Technical support could be more flexible and try to meet the client's needs a bit more effectively.""I could that the UI could be improved."
