Layer 7 API Management for VMware vCloud

Protect, abstract and meter vCloud APIs

Protect, abstract and meter vCloud APIs


With VMware vCloud, enterprises and service providers can programmatically control their virtualized assets via the vCloud APIs. Layer 7’s SecureSpan API Proxy delivers key protection, abstraction and metering capabilities for vCloud APIs by implementing a configurable policy creation and enforcement point at the API level.

The API Proxy's intuitive drag-and-drop policy builder makes it simple to create and enforce API policies that provide for:

  • Abstraction and masking of APIs
  • Composition and orchestration for the creation of new APIs
  • Live dashboard monitoring of API usage
  • Versioning of REST and SOAP APIs
  • Mapping between SOAP and REST
  • Authentication (HTTP, SSL, SAML, Kerberos, OAuth etc.)
  • Cloud Single Sign-On (SSO)
  • Fine-grained authorization to individual APIs
  • Threat detection
  • JSON schema validation
