1.0 Secure API Manager Overview

Application programming interfaces (APIs) are sets of definitions, protocols, and tools for building software. Much software and many items that make up the Internet of Things (IoT) use APIs to provide functionality that your business requires. The APIs also provide the ability to customize software to solve your business problems.

Secure API Manager gives you a single place to add, manage, audit, and secure the APIs that your company uses. You add the APIs once to Secure API Manager and they are available for reuse. You can see all of the available APIs in a single location, making it easy for you to combine multiple APIs to create new functionality while seamlessly requiring access to the APIs through NetIQ Access Manager.
