Cloud connectivity specialist Kong has released Kong Enterprise 2.7, featuring faster performance and other enhancements.

Kong Enterprise 2.7 provides 25% increased throughput and improved latency compared with previous versions, according to GigaOm's benchmarking tests.

Kong Enterprise 2.7 achieved 52,250 TPS maximum throughput with a 100% success rate (last year's version managed 40,625 TPS), which was 2,886% faster than Apigee X's 1,750 TPS, also with 100% success.

The UK Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) adopted Kong Enterprise in 2020.

"The Kong API gateway and Kong Enterprise hosted in our hybrid cloud infrastructure are supporting over 250 million real-time API calls per month and growing," said DWP Digital integration lead Jacqui Leggetter.

"Kong is key to our ongoing ambitious transformation plans and sits at the heart of our secure data sharing ecosystem across DWP and wider government."

The new release of Kong Enterprise includes enhancements such as simplified management capabilities, security improvements, and streamlined workflows to maximise APIOps and increase developer productivity.

Among them are the ability to bulk-apply policies to APIs and developers automatically, an OpenID connect configuration wizard, and support for new real-time and event-based use cases with Kafka and webhooks.

"Kong is focused on delivering the technology innovations that matter to our customers – and that means API connectivity solutions that are highly performant, offer better security and more automation, and provide the ability for customers to work seamlessly across platforms and software architectures," said Kong vice president of product Reza Shafii.

"Kong Enterprise 2.7 is an important step toward Kong's vision of powering the world's digital connections through next-generation solutions that drive businesses forward."
