What makes API Management solutions from CA Technologies better?

Get enterprise-ready API management for the app economy.

APIs empower enterprises to open their IT assets for reuse in new Web and mobile applications. This makes it significantly easier to be quick-to-market with apps that create new revenue streams and add value to existing offerings. However, exposing backend systems via APIs creates a range of new security and management challenges.

API management solutions help address these challenges by providing technology that makes it possible to: secure APIs against attack and misuse; manage the consistent performance of backend system and client applications; enable internal and third-party developers to build apps that realize the true value of enterprise APIs.

However, not all API management solutions on the market today are able to address the needs of leading enterprises. These organizations need technology designed from the ground up with enterprises in mind. This technology must address all the critical stakeholders in an API publishing initiative—from lines of business to operations, security, architects and developers.
