Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

Well suited for publishing internal services with very high security, protecting against attacks, and managing on-demand load. Also good for transform messages and SQL to Rest services.Not appropriate for business logic implementation.

WSO2 API Manager

For smaller organizations, I think this is would be a good tool. For large enterprise organizations, WS02 API Manager is likely not the best fit.

The Layer7 API Management is a great solution, but, sometimes the documentation is not clear or has lack of examples.

The support team is good and the response time is reasonable, but (there is always a but), when support inquiries are made by someone experienced, and the question is not trivial, it is boring and takes a long time to get the case escalated to the next level of support.
