Why use an API gateway?
API¬†gateways¬†play an integral role to¬†protect, enrich, and control access to API services. They allow you to architect your application in a way that provides clear separation between your business logic and security logic. In the long run, this will reduce application errors and provide a common reuse layer across your application.
