LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/11/12 -- SOA Software, a leading provider of SOA governance, cloud and enterprise API management products, announced today that it has added extensive enterprise API capabilities to its Atmosphere product family to enable business to employee and business to business applications.
Enterprises are increasingly making business applications available as APIs in order to drive business growth and expose new revenue and partnership opportunities, and ultimately to improve business efficiency. Open APIs allow external developers to build applications that leverage core business capabilities. Enterprise APIs are offered to a more limited group to enable more sensitive B2B or B2E (employee) applications. Both enterprise and open APIs are typically built on a foundation of enterprise SOA services, taking these services and productizing them with documentation, support, access provisioning, quality-of-service (QoS) management and other API-centric capabilities. Enterprise APIs introduce additional requirements to ensure the security and privacy of the API and the capabilities and data they expose.
Atmosphere provides a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their APIs with the growing app developer community, their partners, and customers. Atmosphere manages, monitors and secures companies' APIs. Atmosphere ensures that these APIs deliver the level of service customers and partners require; that corporate and customer information and assets are secure; and that the integrity of the corporate brand is protected. SOA Software's latest update to Atmosphere introduces comprehensive and flexible enterprise API capabilities, including:
- Private APIs - Atmosphere allows API owners to mark their API as private so it can only be found and viewed by invited users. The API administrators can invite users to view and access the API.
- Groups - Atmosphere enables API administrators to define specific and distinct groups to access their APIs. Within the product are capabilities for providing different groups with contextual discussion forums which allow users to post questions, comments and get support. The forums can be either private in the context of their own group, or publicly in the scope of the entire API. This allows the administrators to use the same API to support different business partners, without exposing one partner to another.
- Teams - Atmosphere defines the concept of an App development or API team. This is a defined and invited team of users who share common responsibilities for administering or accessing an API or App. This enables the kind of collaborative environment that is required for enterprise application development.
- User & role management - Atmosphere allows an individual user to have multiple different roles depending on their context (the API or App they are working with). It allows administrators to share and delegate responsibility for certain actions with other users.
"Our large enterprise customers are using APIs to enable business-to-employee and business-to-partner applications," said Alistair Farquharson, SOA Software chief technology officer. "The private API, group and team capabilities in Atmosphere help these organizations ensure the security and privacy of their enterprise APIs."
These new enterprise API capabilities extend Atmosphere's existing functionality which include:
- API definition, content, policy and lifecycle management that ensures APIs are correctly structured and well documented with integration with internal design and development processes.
- Intermediation to simplify the creation of RESTful APIs with both XML and JSON content from various internal service types with powerful paging and caching to improve app performance.
- Sophisticated security capabilities to help protect APIs from abuse and ensure the privacy of customer data.
- Comprehensive QoS management (SLAs and quotas) to protect internal applications from overload of the API and to provide customers with service-level guarantees.
- Extensive consumer contract monitoring and management of traffic from individual apps.
- Integrated sandbox, testing and debugging capabilities to simplify the delivery of high-quality APIs.

Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
