Proxying with API Manager

We often expose the proxy APIs that connect applications to their backend APIs. With a proxy API, the application continues to run without issue and continue to call and connect to the backend API while a developer is editing it. Exposing a proxy API also protects the backend API from the world, shielding the real IP address.

The advantage of using a proxy is having a layer of separation to ensure that any attacks against our API are stopped well before anyone interacts with our main servers.

Performance of API Gateway policies

When deployed as an API Gateway and managed with API Manager, the highly performant Anypoint Platform enables you to control which traffic is authorized to pass through your APIs to various backend services, meter the traffic flowing through your API, log transactions, and apply runtime policies.

A policy is a mechanism the gateway uses to enforce filters on traffic as it flows through the gateway.
