Astera API Management has a built-in feature, API relay, which creates a secure connection between your on-premises and cloud systems. The solution allows you to deploy a relay server in the cloud and an agent server on your system behind the firewall, without reliance on the IT team.
API consumers send requests to the relay server, which acts as a mediator between enterprise data and the outside world. The relay server verifies API consumers by checking their authentication. It then queues the requests and communicates them to the agents. The agents find the requested data stored behind the firewalls and send it to the relay server. The relay server then shares the data with API consumers
