API Management

Transform your business and drive innovation by embracing the API economy


Massive investments in business-to-business, cloud and mobile technologies have created a new API economy that is changing the way businesses collaborate and compete. Web APIs, the de-facto standard for cloud and mobile applications, can unlock your legacy systems and transform your business with an open and agile platform for reaching new channels.

To thrive in the API economy, you will need an enterprise-grade API management architecture with the security to protect sensitive data, control access and support integration to a wide range of on-premise and cloud-based applications.

Let’s get started.
If you need to... So your company can... Axway can help.
Integrate cloud and on-premise applications and services
  • Simplify integration to and from cloud services (SaaS) such as with API-centric transformation, mediation and policy enforcement
  • Enable SSO and fine-grained access control across cloud and on-premise applications
  • Protect sensitive data as it travels to and from the cloud
  • Monitor Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for the cloud services your business depends on
Deliver and manage secure mobile access to back-end applications
  • Quickly expose and optimize application functionality as lightweight mobile-ready APIs
  • Leverage existing enterprise identity management systems for secure mobile access
  • Introduce contextual access control based on user identity, device and geo-location
  • Centralize management of mobile notifications
Manage APIs for the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Manage APIs to control connected devices and access real-time information from device sensors
  • Protect connected devices from unauthorized consumers and external threats using a secure gateway
  • Scale to support millions of consumers and petabytes of data
  • Audit, monitor, log and report API usage to meet stringent compliance mandates
Extend SOA beyond the firewall
  • Easily convert between SOAP-based web services, XML messages and REST APIs
  • Integrate Web services, APIs and other technologies using a lightweight, API-centric alternative to traditional ESBs
  • Manage and monitor web services and REST APIs to prevent unauthorized usage, data access or external attacks
  • Govern the lifecycle of web services and APIs
Secure and protect web services and REST APIs
  • Protect against malicious attacks, including Denial of Service (DoS), code injection and other threats with built-in security and Web Application Firewall (WAF) capabilities
  • Enforce fine-grained access control across developers and organizations for messaging, APIs and web services
  • Implement encryption, authentication, authorization, SLA and other policies using rules and a configure-not-code approach
  • Provide end-to-end audit trails without coding through configuration and pre-built analytics
Bridge identity relationships across domains
  • Simplify API access control
  • Mediate identities and security tokens across common identity and access management systems
  • Enable single sign-on (SSO) or leverage “Social Login” for your applications
  • Extend web access management to APIs
Create, manage, expose and report on APIs for internal and external developer communities
  • Design and deploy REST, SOAP or other APIs for business-to-business, cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives
  • Give developers and organizations self-service on-boarding, API discovery, testing and integration
  • Manage end-to-end API lifecycles, including developer Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Provide complete visibility and auditability on API usage to API providers and developers
Extend legacy gateways and appliances to support cloud, mobile and other REST API projects
  • Easily extend or replace an existing SOA or XML gateway such as IBM DataPower or CISCO ACE XML Gateway
  • Leverage modern cloud-based infrastructure, rather than being confined to on-premise deployment models
  • Build and manage APIs more easily with a graphical configure-not-code approach and pre-built, reusable components
  • Gain fast and efficient support for mobile-specific types, including REST, JSON and OAuth
