Google said that the new API Gateway enables developers to easily package multiple services into easy-to-use APIs while making it easy for users to access via a single interface. API Gateway also adds additional layers of security like authentication and key validation, by configuring security definitions that need all incoming calls to provide a valid API key.

API Gateway also enables you to set quotas and specify usage limits to protect your APIs from abuse or excessive usage.
 
According to Google, API Gateway offers all the operational benefits of serverless, like flexible deployment and scalability, so that developers can focus on building great applications. The new Gateway can manage APIs for multiple backends such as Cloud Functions, Cloud Run, Compute Engine, App Engine, and Google Kubernetes Engine.
