Secure your internal and external API traffic with the world’s most popular open-source API gateway
API production and consumption is exploding, overburdening IT teams
Microservices, partner integrations, and public APIs are driving this growth
Securing all these APIs is harder – and more important – than ever
Asking each engineering team to implement their own API security is wasteful and risky
API consumers authenticate once through Okta, and receive an access token
Kong enforces token validity when consumers try consuming APIs
API consumers can easily access the APIs they’re authorized to access—and only those
Okta also secures the developer portal and Kong admin access
Secure APIs without sacrificing agility
Whether public-facing or internal-only, APIs should be accessible only to authorized parties. Previously, implementing API access control required each engineering team to independently build and maintain security at the service or application level. Now, by delegating security to Okta + Kong, engineering teams can move quickly without compromising the safety of enterprise assets.
Enjoy intuitive, standards-based integration
Okta and Kong work perfectly together because each implements identity and access management standards like OAuth and OpenID Connect. Employees, partners, and other authorized end users can easily understand and quickly implement the integration, because it’s based on open standards.
Add a developer portal and API analytics
Okta and Kong integrated together bring admin access, a developer portal for teaching consumers how to use your APIs, and an analytics feature to understand how your APIs are being used together in one complete, easy-to-manage API experience.
Secure and manage access to APIs and developer tools
Okta + Kong connect quickly to implement speedy API access control
Standards-based integration makes the Okta + Kong combination easy to understand, implement, and extend
Okta secures Kong’s API developer portal and administrator access for seamless control
Dev teams regain agility, once they’re freed from building and maintaining API security, analytics, and documentation
