In our organization, Amazon API Gateway helps developers to manage, create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs of any and all scales. It helps a lot in streamlining administrations. It has a fantastic setup and security for hosting REST APIs that comply with HIPPA guidelines and regulations. Its operation is very easy to use and flexible.

We use Amazon API Gateway at the IT department for all internal and external tools integration which involves web services. Our organization uses Amazon API Gateway to have an authentication layer and security for all the public-facing web services. It helped our organization to have better security and zero downtime for new version deployments.

We are using API Gateway (API GW) as an HTTP front end for internal resources including lambda functions and load-balanced web applications. Other teams are using API GW as integration for static resources.

The main problem that API GW addresses for us is providing an authorization management point for access to internal services. We can use the API keys, authorization hooks, and usage plans to really dial in who can access our applications while controlling how they access them.

We use the [Amazon] API Gateway across the enterprise. Today it is our main communication channel, when it comes to APIs, because it is quite robust, and at the same time flexible enough to be managed and used in the daily activities of different teams, with the necessary security controls. It solved a problem of centralization, simplified management and access control of the APIs.

Our organization uses Amazon API Gateway to orchestrate and consolidate web service APIs across projects. It is a useful multi-purpose tool, and we use it to integrate authentication to our APIs, build out consolidated responses from different API endpoints, and to provide a single point of access to multiple web service APIs developed using a myriad of different technologies and programming languages. It also provides a great way to document and integrate web services via Swagger integrations.

Amazon API Gateway is used to migrate existing legacy apps and to create new apps based on the latest department initiatives. It is allowing us to generate more "generic" APIs that can be easily shared across different applications and it is easier to develop with lambda behind it. We are now moving more and more towards cloud and serverless and this perfectly fit our needs.

Our team develops several APIs for multiple end-users to consume. These are both internal and external customers. Our services are behind the Amazon API Gateway. This helps in securing our APIs and also helps curtail misuse of our APIs by bad actors. Thus Amazon API Gateway is helping us a great deal as we put a lot of the administration efforts within the gateway itself instead of our code.

I have been using API Gateway along with other AWS products. API Gateway provides smooth API architecture which you can easily deploy. In my company, we're using API Gateway integrated with AWS Lambda. API Gateway has mapping templates which you can use to create an event-based architecture. It also gives you the opportunity to protect your endpoints, whether your own "authorization lambda," or via X-API-Key provided from AWS. You may decide to not use an API Key. It gives you the opportunity to define HTTP request headers, query string parameters, or even define the request and response body. You can also export your API as a Postman collection or Swagger to publish it to your users. In our company, we have six different API Gateway instances working with tens of Lambdas. Each instance has a different environment, which provides you with a unique link. We are very happy with API Gateway and do not face any issues except timeout limits until now. Also, enabling CORS is pretty easy, and API Gateway provides you all of the security which makes you feel more comfortable and focus on your work.

Amazon API Gateway is one of the best way to host your services under the AWS umbrella and easy to provide scalability and reliability. Our company is exposing an API service to various clients with custom billing and limitation. In this task, Amazon API provides a great infrastructure and security to host REST APIs with HIPAA compliances.

Amazon API Gateway has been adopted by multiple teams within our organization.
It offers an intuitive easy-to-use entry point to the AWS serverless services, and has helped our team move traditional 3-tier web applications to the cloud with ease.

At our firm, we provide different services and at different levels to our clients. With using Amazon API Gateway, it became possible for us to expose our services through simple REST endpoints. We have it synced up with different Amazon Lambda functions that handle the bulk of the processing and then exposing them via the API gateway.

We use Amazon API Gateway in conjunction with AWS Lambda functions and the Serverless framework to rapidly build microservices. This combination is very powerful, particularly for small development teams, because it allows us to delegate work to AWS; we can focus our development effort only on features that yield competitive advantages for our business.
