Additional buying options are available for IBM® API Connect™ Cloud Service that were previously announced as IBM API Connect Hybrid in Software Announcement 217-142, dated March 14, 2017.

API Connect provides an additional buying option that allows a Reserved Instance to be accessed from Bluemix®. This Reserved Instance option offers a dedicated API Connect instance that runs on IBM-managed infrastructure. This new Reserved Instance provides value by balancing the flexibility from a shared infrastructure, and the isolation of a reserved API Connect instance.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
