MuleSoft

MuleSoft is a vendor that provides an integration platform to help businesses connect data, applications and devices across on-premises and cloud computing environments.

The company's platform, called Anypoint Platform, includes various tools to develop, manage and test application programming interfaces (APIs), which support these connections.

Components

MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform offers a number of tools and services, including the following:

  • API Designer is a web-based, graphical tool that a developer can use to design and document an API, as well as share that design with team members. A developer can also choose to reuse specific components of an API, such as security schema.
  • API Manager is an interface through which a developer can manage APIs, as well as secure them via an API gateway. With this component of the Anypoint platform, it's possible to control user access to APIs, ensure secure connections to back-end data sources and create policies around API calls and throttling.
