API Gateway

An efficient and secure way to register, manage, and deliver your APIs over the Akamai network.


API Gateway is a component of the Akamai Intelligent Platform. It works with Web Performance solutions, Kona Site Defender, and Web Application Protector.

API Gateway sits at the edge and provides various benefits if you’re an API developer. For example, you can use it to expose internal APIs to external clients. You can also control access to those APIs, or manage and analyze their consumption. You can even boost performance of API responses by leveraging the Akamai cloud.

You can configure your API traffic in Control Center, or use Akamai’s rich set of administrative APIs to control it.
