Best Practices for Deploying API Gateways

Best Practices Thumbnail.png

Today there are 8 billion connected “things” using APIs as the foundation of innovation in architecture design and modernization, enabling applications and services to be exposed for consumers to access in a manner that simplifies integration and reduces the burden of interoperability.

There are many types of APIs ranging from REST, Cloud, Mobile, B2B, and IoT,  In the modern era, it is essential to properly secure, authenticate, and integrate APIs using technology and principles of API Security and Zero Trust.  API Security Gateways enable data and applications to be securely exposed,  however, this is a distinctly different technology from integration API Gateways, which provide virtually no security at all.

In this white paper, you will learn best practices and common deployment scenarios of API Gateways and why they are an essential component of a secure, robust and scalable API infrastructure.

Some of the topics we will discuss include 

  • API Gateway deployment best practices and benefits.
  • Common deployment scenarios of API Gateways.
  • Key requirements to consider when evaluating API Gateways.
