Create a Developer Platform

Rapidly design, publish and consume APIs and services

    Is Your Developer Platform a Roadblock to Innovation?

    Slowed Development Velocity

    Legacy API platforms fail to ensure consistent documentation, resulting in poor service discoverability and outages when docs do not match production.

    Tedious Manual Processes

    Legacy API platforms lack robust integrations with leading CI/CD tools, reducing ability to automate manual tasks and draining developer productivity.

    Increased Risk of Disruptions

    Legacy API gateways are not container- or kubernetes-native, creating risk of configuration drift due to separate management of the gateway and the underlying platform.

    Verifone Trusts Kong for its Global, Omnichannel Payments Solution

    As these integrations scaled up, the addition of a robust API Gateway solution like Kong to our technology stack was a no-brainer.

    Sarika Attal , Senior Director at Papa John’s

    Being able to inject end-to-end security and tracing without introducing performance issues is huge for our customers. With Kong Mesh and Kong, we know that our customers will get a flexible, high-performance solution for all their needs, now and in the future.

    Aaron Weikle , CEO at MS3

    With Kong, we knew that we would get something that would work perfectly with our technology today and set us up for where we want to go. Kong allows us to deploy on-premise, easily integrates with all the technologies we use across the company and gives us the flexibility we want to avoid vendor lock-in.

    Kanaderu Fukuda , Senior Manager at Yahoo! Japan

    Since all regional payment systems were previously monoliths exposing APIs separately, the API gateway was a greenfield project for Verifone. "In moving to microservices, we knew we needed an API gateway."

    Hans van Leeuwen , Lead Architect at Verifone

    Reduce Deployment Risk

    Eliminate risk of configuration drift by declaratively configuring Kubernetes and the Kong Gateway within a single YAML file. Limit who can make configuration changes through Role-based Access Controls (RBAC).

    Boost Developer Productivity

    Provide a frictionless onboarding and service discovery experience to drive API consumption. Ensure developers always have access to the most up-to-date documentation with automatic updates.

    Accelerate Time to Market

    Automate workflows and reduce manual tasks by seamlessly integrating with leading CI/CD tools. Automatically generate configurations and publish REST, GraphQL, and gRPC services to the Kong Dev Portal using Kong Studio.
