Why Kong Konnect?

The number of APIs are exploding. Don’t let it blow up your applications.

Kong Konnect is an end-to-end SaaS API lifecycle management platform that is designed for the cloud native era and provides the easiest way to get started with Kong Gateway. The global control plane is hosted in the cloud by Kong, while the runtime engine — Kong Gateway, the fastest and most adopted API gateway — runs within your preferred network environment.

The result? A performant combo that ensures services are connected reliably, securely, and efficiently at scale across on-premises, multi-cloud, and hybrid cloud environments.
