(NASDAQ: AKAM), the world’s largest and most trusted cloud delivery platform, today announced significant early momentum for its Akamai API Gateway, including successful customer adoption across a number of markets and geographies.

Unlike competitive offerings, Akamai brings its API Gateway to the edge for easier governance, monitoring and scale of APIs that are critical to enabling new business models. The Gateway frees up time spent on managing and maintaining published APIs, allowing developers to focus on API strategy, design and implementation with increased agility.
Akamai’s recently introduced API developer resource site equips developers with the tools and resources to get started with the Akamai API Gateway. The site includes getting-started guides, a product demo, and use cases so API developers and DevOps teams can understand how the solution can add value for their applications.
