What do you like best?

What I like most about Nevatech Sentinet is the fact that both its installation and initial configuration are quite simple tasks to perform, compared to other software where you have to spend several hours trying to configure everything perfectly. , with Sentinet, this is not the case. In terms of interface, it has a fairly powerful and simple user view that allows me to easily navigate through the entire system without any problem, easily, quickly and safely, as far as performance is concerned, it has been working for us. perfection, without any problem or inconvenience during our use, something that is a great plus since it avoids severe headaches Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When trying to migrate from one development environment to another it can become quite an odyssey, because there the migration process is quite complex, extensive and above all long, for which I think they should try to simplify this a bit. process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I love with Sentinet is that you get from zero to hero in no time. Installation and set up is very easy, admin console too. The whole GUI experience is very easy to understand.

Day to day work with Sentinet is easy. If you have a WSDL or a swagger you have the API up and running in minutes with all bells and whistles.

The Sentinet environment is robust and hardly (if ever) has any errors. I've worked with Sentinet for approx 6 years and I have never had any problems with the runtime environment. A great product which have helped my client a lot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The only negative view from me would be that the installation account needs to be part of the sysadmin role on SQL server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Provides an easy way to manage and secure your API's. You no longer have to build in some sort of security mechanism into the API code itself. Just let Sentinet handle that overhead via some configuration. It has also been extremely useful in creating custom APIs "in front of" existing APIs that would not normally be exposed to the public. It allows for reusing those internal APIs in such a way that we can save time and money reusing them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Migrating through environments (dev, qa, staging and production) is not as easy as it could be (or maybe there is something I do not know about). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ask for a trial to ensure the product meets your specific needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Core benefits for us have been managing (sometimes multiple versions) and securing our APIs. We have also been able to leverage some customization features within Sentinet to provide NetSuite authentication to avoid having to build that into our APIs. This saves lots of extra code sitting in the APIs that really doesn't need to be there. The API can focus on what it should be doing and not the overhead stuff that is not really needed within an API. Lastly, the interface is easy to use and the typical dev ops person can pick it up very quickly. This has helped allow devops to manage deployments instead of getting the developers always involved in the process. Overall this saves the company money and also spreads the knowledge so a couple of people are never the bottleneck. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We are very happy with Sentinet and it’s proven to be a robust application meeting the needs our business has; it’s a great governance tool and provides easy automated implementation in new environments.

Key benefits as we use them are:

- Flexible in regards of automated configuration of the services

o We continuously and automatically deploy ~1500 operations with different access control, transformations etc fully automated

- Stable and reliable (not a root cause of downtime as far as we can remember with approximately 5 years in production)

- Great capabilities regarding security, access control and monitoring

- Low overhead (latency) on services - with access control and extensive logging

- Great support from Nevatech

- Good separation between core services and logging

o Asynchronous logging of all service calls (no speed decrement for consumer while logging)

o Database can be offline without interrupting services

- Easy licensing model per server (no advanced calculations or hidden costs) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- No powershell support (we are a MS house and rely heavily on powershell for all our devops needs, and although they have different APIs that gets the job done, they really should have a powershell module)

- Admin console still using Silverlight (waiting for Sentinet 5.0 where it is removed, which will happen in this quarter)

- A bit cumbersome to automate (flexible, but somewhat cumbersome). But when set up, it’s easy to incorporate changes Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a centralized hub for securely handling all our services with access control through different authentication protocols, and a hub for logging and troubleshooting all our services. It was essential that it could be deployed to environments fully automated. Sentinet solved all of these requirements.

With fully automated configuration of all our services, we no longer have to worry about one environment being different from the others and know that production is configured identical to the test environments. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best thing about Sentinet so far has been the company behind it. Nevatech has been very responsive to our questions, concerns, and requests for adjustments to the product.

There are a number of features of the Sentinet product that stand out. The first is how simple it is to set up and configure. There's a small learning curve to understand the terminology used in the product and relate that back to your own view of the world, but once that's achieved then everything just "makes sense" and setting up APIs to work through Sentint is a breeze.

Sentinet is itself an API-first product. So it is also easy to establish some automation in your deployment pipeline to provision new and updated API services as well as API clients (Access Rules). We have achieved a "0-touch" model where our applications are released, Sentinet is kept current, and there is no manual intervention required.

The gateway (Node) component of the Sentinet product is also designed to support High-Availability in that the gateway can be load balanced AND it will continue to function even when the backing repository or database becomes unavailable. Because of this, we have created an automated process to deploy (and upgrade) the ENTIRE Sentinet platform in a Highly-Available manner where the entire platform in production can be upgraded in <10 minutes with ZERO downtime.

Another feature of Sentinet that we have leveraged is the ability to aggregate multiple APIs into, what appears to the client, as 1 API. This enables us to separate the physical deployments of endpoints so resources like /cars, /cars/{carId}, and /cars/{carId}/tires can appear to the client as 1 cohesive API while in reality those 3 endpionts are hosted by 3 different backing services. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are a few quirks with Sentinet that we have had to work around although none of them have been show stoppers. And, all of our major concerns have either been already addressed with a newer version or are in Nevatech's development pipeline to be addressed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

After having used Sentinet for just over a year, and having evaluated other gateway products, if your technology stack includes Microsoft and .NET, then Sentinet is a no-brainer.

If you do not leverage .NET, Sentinet may still be a great solution for you based on Nevatech's licensing model and the ability to tie into the product via it's APIs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem we have set out to address is the overall management of our API portfolio.

This includes having a centralized location where APIs can be discovered & attributes about each API can be maintained, we can track the usage of all of our endpoints by the client consuming them, we have a simplified approach to debugging problems in higher environments (not everyone has to log everything), and we can centralize all the high-level logging and correlation tracking in one place (again, so we don't have to keep rewriting that logic). We have already realized these benefits using the Sentinet product.

We plan to continue leveraging more features of Sentinet to help us better govern the APIs that we manage (spike arrets, quotas, SLAs, etc.) but have not gotten to that yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the ability to track software assets and metrics

Without a centralized repository, it would be difficult for the us to track existing software assets and their operational metrics. This would result in a large number of business-critical services operating in an unmanaged environment with poor visibility.

Improve security, access control, and monitoring

Sentinet provides a non-intrusive solution that enables a service architecture with high security and access control. Built-in Sentinet security management features provided encryption wherever needed without incremental software costs.
