    Over the past 12 months, we have delivered significant new capabilities in the  Layer 7 products - hardening the platform core capabilities as well differentiating the feature set. Layer7 API Portal v 4.4 was released in December 2019 to a very positive customer reception, thanks to the exciting capabilities such as OpenAPI 3.0 support, significantly improved analytics performance, integrated API monitoring, and more. FY20 will see further evolution of our products, including unified product distribution, new licensing models, and enhanced portfolio products integration, while supporting the latest industry trends.

    Evolving the product portfolio to meet our customers' needs is a part of our standard development practices. Continuous evolution of the current offering in-the-market is paired with decommissioning of the older and non up-to-date product versions.
