Apigee partners with IQT to deliver security. Global messaging apps choose Nexmo for user authentication. Plus: 3scale bags $4.2 million, Edamam's Nutrition API, and 17 new APIs.
Apigee Partners with IQT for Enhanced API Security
Apigee has entered into a partnership with In-Q-Tel (IQT), a nonprofit that, according to its website, "identifies, adapts and delivers innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the CIA and broader US intelligence community." The press release spells out where Apigee comes in:
"The Apigee platform can support organizations at varying stages of their API initiatives, from building effective APIs to creating meaningful business intelligence from their app ecosystems," said Robert Ames, Senior Vice President in charge of IQT's Information and Communication Technologies Practice. "We believe that our government customers will be able to benefit from this comprehensive set of capabilities."
It's easy to see how both companies are needed. On the one hand there is the power of Apigee's API technology: the intelligence community needs it to fully access the power of APIs. On the other, using that power securely in an intelligence context is of vital importance, otherwise a constructive force could become a tool of destruction. Making certain that the technology is secure is where IQT comes in.
