IBM DataPower Gateway is a premier gateway platform to secure, integrate, control and optimize multi-channel workloads, including API transactions. It can be used as an API gateway for IBM API Connect, enabling quicker delivery of business assets as API services. DataPower Gateways protect against security exposures, acting as shock absorbers to ensure smooth operation even during traffic spikes. They are available in many form factors, including cloud platforms, and on-premise infrastructure (physical hardware, X86 Linux, Docker, and hypervisor environments).
