WSO2 API Manager Earns Silver Award in the Info Security Products Guide's Global Excellence Awards Category for API Management and Security

PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

WSO2 announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has recognized WSO2 API Manager with a Silver Award for the 10th Annual 2014 Global Excellence Awards in the API (Application Programming Interface) Management and Security category. These prestigious global awards, which were announced this week, recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

WSO2 API Manager is the first 100% open source API management product combining easy, managed API access, API governance, and analysis. It empowers API publishers with complete API lifecycle governance for creating, publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs-supported by OAuth 2.0 authentication, key credential management, and credential mediation. Providing the first API Store, it lets enterprises set up an Apple or Google (News - Alert) Marketplace-like store for developers to subscribe to and consume APIs, including self-service key generation. Designed for robust scalability, WSO2 API Manager is built on the same WSO2 technology powering global enterprises, including a Global 1000 company that is handling more than 1 billion API calls per day.

Significantly, WSO2 API Manager is the first API management product with full inherent multi-tenancy, so the same software can run on servers, as a virtual machine, in either a public or private platform as a service (PaaS), or hybrid cloud. It also enables federated access to APIs across multiple entities to manage isolation between deprtments, partners or development groups.

Other key features include:

  • Support for SOAP, REST, JSON and XML-style APIs.
  • Secure authorization of subscribed APIs via the OAuth 2.0 key model plus support for the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code Grant.
  • Single sign-on via the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).
  • Throttling and rate limiting based on API key, protecting against denial of service (DOS) attacks and supporting management of service-level agreements (SLAs).
  • Ability to revoke access tokens and restrict API access tokens to domains and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
  • Capabilities for blocking a subscription and restricting a complete application.
  • Analytics and metrics support decision-making and enforce SLA policies.
  • Ability to select either or both HTTP and HTTPS as an API's endpoints as the API is being created.

"We are honored to have our WSO2 API Manager product recognized by Info Security Products Guide with a Silver Award in the API Management and Security category," said Paul Fremantle, WSO2 co-founder and CTO. "We believe this recognition from the highly regarded Info Security Products Guide further validates our commitment to reinventing software around open source and open standards to meet enterprises' real-world API management, governance and security needs."
