Why Sentinet?

In the modern API Economy, the APIs and Web Services are not just the way to do business but the way to stay in business. Organizations use APIs to integrate their internal Enterprise Applications, to expose APIs to their business partners and consumers, and to build applications that use somebody else’s public or private APIs.

Whether you provide an API for internal or external use, or consume your partner’s API, you face the same exact common API Governance and API Management challenges such as security, monitoring, analytics and many others. Sentinet software solution addresses these common challenges by taking full responsibility to provide cost-effective management and control for your APIs, and helps developers and operations to focus on the essence of the APIs’ business execution.

At the same time, Sentinet is the only product on the market that is entirely built on the Microsoft platform that covers on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments by the same unified solution. This makes Sentinet unique where Microsoft or mixed technologies are involved.

Sentinet is the software solution that combines API Governance design-time capabilities with powerful API Management run-time capabilities.

Unique User Interface that makes API Management as simple as never before.

Helps to protect your services and APIs with the managed access and control, and to simplify integrations with your partners’ services and APIs.

Sentinet supports all communication protocols such as SOAP and REST and all industry standard and custom security models, on-premises or in the cloud.

Built-in capabilities combined with unprecedented level of extensibility for custom behaviors via standard Microsoft .NET interfaces.

Sentinet On-Premises
