oGaTe provides the following governance features:

  • Ease of deployment

oGaTe includes many features that speed up deployment. For example, certificates and private keys, necessary for XML security functions, are issued on board. oGaTe has a deny-by-default defense posture, to detect and block unauthorized deployments of services. Policies can be re-applied across multiple endpoints using simple menus. Policies can also be imported and exported as XML files. This minimizes time needed to replicate policies across multiple oGaTe, or to move from a staging system to production environment.

  • Centralized management

The Policy Studio tool enables administrators to add security and management policies to the oGaTe, and to manage policy versions across multiple oGaTe. This enables enterprise policy management to be brought under centralized control, rather than be managed separately on each oGaTe.

  • Monitoring

oGaTe Manager includes monitoring and traffic logging to monitor messages sent through oGaTe.

All monitoring data can be aggregated across multiple oGaTe instances in a group or domain, and can be used to perform root cause analysis and generate alerts.

API Manager also includes monitoring of APIs and client applications in a metrics database.

 

  • Reporting

oGaTe Analytics console provides auditing and reporting on usage across all entry points and creates comprehensive reports to meet operational and compliance requirements. oGaTe Analytics also provides root cause analysis by identifying common failure points in multi-service transactions. If a service fails, and impacts the transaction as a whole, oGaTe Analytics can detect this and generate alerts.

  • Traffic throttling

oGaTe protects services from unanticipated traffic spikes by smoothing out traffic. It also limits clients to agreed service consumption levels in accordance with service usage agreements. This enables customers to charge their clients for different levels of service usage.
