Google has updated Apigee, its management platform. Apigee X brings together Google’s expertise in AI, security, and networking, to help companies better manage their APIs.
Apigee is an API management platform that can be used to implement and publish APIs. It was acquired by Google in 2016, and has now been updated to make use of Google Cloud CDN so Apigee users can deploy APIs across 24 Google Cloud regions.
Apigee can be used to create, secure, publish, analyze, monitor, and monetize APIs. Apigee customers can create API proxies and visually configure or code API policies as steps in the API flow, and can customize API behavior using code.
Apigee also has a developer portal so companies can publish APIs to the customizable portal, so that developers can explore, test, get API keys, and make use of existing APIs. Customers can use Apigee as an abstraction layer on top of existing services, and can make data and services available as APIs to partners and developers.
Google says the new version:
"weaves together Google Cloud’s expertise in AI, security and networking to help enterprises efficiently manage the assets on which digital transformation initiatives are built."
Google's goal for Apigee is to help customers move from API-based programs to "digital excellence and API-based platforms". The updated release improves security and privacy to guard against "abusive API traffic". Apigee X customers can use Google's Cloud Armor web application firewall for API security and Cloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) for authenticating and authorizing access to the Apigee platform. It gives businesses more control over encrypted data with CMEK and lets them store data in the region of their choice and control the network locations from which users can access data by using VPC Service Controls.
The new release also makes use of Google's AI and machine learning features to analyze historical API metadata to identify anomalies, predict traffic for peak seasons, and ensure APIs adhere to compliance requirements.
