Rate this solution WSO2 API Manager le 09/09/2015

“ WSO2 API Manager is a truly open source solution based on the Carbon platform. Strong points are its open,modular and flexible approach so, to fulfill your requirements, you can combine it easily with: - others WSO2 products, e.g.: ESB+BAM+Identity Server - solutions from other vendors or propietary code (e.g., to build a propietary portal) Weak point is security, but you can install NGINX or equivalent (Apache HA proxy)+mod_security(with OWASP rules) in front of API Gateway to secure it. ”
