Developer Roundtable: Device Gateways

Join us as we discuss ngrok Device Gateways for IoT

ngrok for production

Serve your apps and APIs globally without any friction whether they are running in the cloud, on-premises, or even in customer and partner networks.

Site to site connectivity
Never ask customers to open ports on the firewall. Access apps and APIs securely in your customers’ environments without site-to-site VPNs, VPC peering or other complex networking.
Learn more
API Gateway
Go from code to global in just minutes with a developer-friendly, idiomatic solution for managing traffic to your APIs.
Learn more
Device Gateway
Standardize connectivity across your fleet of IoT devices running in external networks. No need to struggle with custom protocols.
Learn more
Kubernetes Ingress
Simplify ingress with the Kubernetes Operator, using Ingress Controller or Gateway API, by offloading traffic management and security to ngrok’s global network.
Learn more
Global Load Balancer
Ensure high performance and availability by routing traffic to the nearest Point of Presence (PoP) with preconfigured global load balancer.
Learn more
Identity-Aware Proxy
Protect your applications and APIs from unauthorized access without writing extra code.

ngrok for development

Bring secure connectivity to apps and APIs in localhost and dev/test environments with just one command or function call.

Webhook Testing
Get a secure public URL for your local web server, then trigger webhooks. Inspect the traffic to your server and replay webhook requests to iterate quickly while staying in context.
Learn more
Developer Preview
Demo a website or an app running on your local machine to a client or stakeholder instantly and securely, without deploying to a staging environment.

Pay only for what you use

Ditch high upfront costs and pay only for active endpoints and successful API calls. Scale your costs in line with your API traffic growth.

How it works

ngrok operates a global network where it accepts traffic to your upstream services from clients.

Clients connect to your endpoints (URLs). You configure policies such as authentication or transformation. Unlike traditional proxies, ngrok doesn't rely on IP forwarding. Instead, you run a lightweight agent that connects securely to ngrok's network. Traffic flows through this secure connection to your service.

With ngrok, we get comprehensive security with a full scope of functionality for all of our use cases.
