Apiary aims to improve API quality with integrated testing service

The service lets users test APIs with a local back end

Apiary has integrated an API testing service with the company's development platform to help developers verify local changes and improve the quality of the code in the process.

APIs (application programming interfaces) are playing an increasingly important role in enterprise app development, as a growing number of companies are looking to use them to share data between applications. To make it easier to create the interfaces, tools from vendors such as Apiary are there to help.

In a sign of growing maturity, Apiary on Tuesday announced it had integrated a testing service with the company's development platform, which can be used to design, prototype, test, and document APIs.

The testing service, which started life as the Dredd tool on Github, changes the way developers create APIs by letting them test interface reliability in live environments in real time. As a result, developers can with greater confidence ensure their APIs will work properly, according to Apiary. Instead of having to rely on and spend time building manual verification tests.

That the service has been used and iterated upon over the past year makes Apiary confident that it won't disappoint.

The service is available beginning now. Apiary offers its platform via four different plans. The one the company recommends is Teams, which costs US$99 per month and supports up to 50 users.

Apiary also announced Tuesday that it has completed a $6.8 million Series A round of funding. The company was founded in 2011 and customers include Microsoft, Salesforce, Akamai Technologies and L.L. Bean.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
