Launched in 2006, Mashery is designed to make it cheaper and easier for companies to build and control channels for web services than it would be to do everything in-house.
Thousands of software-driven companies are releasing APIs in order to become Software as a Service (SaaS) providers, either as a primary or secondary line of business. Although every API is different, the infrastructure to manage them includes the same set of challenges across virtually all providers. Adopting Mashery's developer management and support services allows API vendors to focus on their core business.
Mashery offers all the ingredients needed to get APIs widely distributed and successfully used – an API marketplace, tracking, metrics, usage/access management, commerce, security and performance tools.
Mashery’s customers include Shopping.com, Move, Cafe Press, LinkedIn, Lonely Planet, Freewebs, Get Satisfaction, Compete.com, France Telecom, Netflix, Trulia and Sylantro.
