The NGINX Controller API Management Module secures your APIs at every API touchpoint – authenticating and authorizing third-party client applications and developers, rate limiting API calls to mitigate DDoS attacks, and protecting backend applications that process the API calls.

With NGINX Controller’s API Management Module, you define an API just once and publish it to as many environments as you want. This “create once, publish many” approach eliminates user errors as well as saving time and effort, especially if you have to define a lot of APIs.
In this inaugural post in our "Ask NGINX" series, we explain how to convert F5 BIG-IP iRules and Apache rewrite rules to NGINX syntax, use NGINX as an API gateway and NGINX Controller for full API lifecycle management, and implement blue-green deployment with NGINX.
In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Timo Stark of Audi shares how his team built the Audi Cockpit, a dashboard on which Audi employees access work apps. NGINX Plus serves as API gateway for the dashboard, which uses AWS-hosted microservices in Kubernetes-managed containers.
The NGINX Controller API Management Module is next-generation solution for defining and publishing APIs, managing and securing API traffic, monitoring performance, and analyzing usage. In short, it manages the entire lifecycle of APIs without compromising performance.
NGINX Plus covers all API gateway use cases, from traditional monoliths to distributed microservices. No need for the separate microgateway that first-generation API management vendors have had to bolt onto their solutions to handle modern application architectures.
What is API management? It covers all the functions you perform on your APIs across their life cycle, including definition and publishing, securing and managing traffic, monitoring and troubleshooting to ensure customer satisfaction, and analyzing traffic to maximize business value.
The most substantial set to date of updates to the NGINX Application Platform further simplify application infrastructures by consolidating application delivery, API management, and service mesh management into a single solution.
