Who are Tyk, and what do we do?
The Tyk API Management platform is helping to drive the connected world and power new products and services. We're changing the way that organisations connect any number of their systems and services.

Whether internal, external, public or highly encrypted systems, Tyk helps businesses drive value across the retail, finance, telecoms, healthcare, or media industries (to name just a few!) If you've banked online, used an app to check the news, or perhaps even driven a connected car, API's, and by extension, Tyk, make that possible.

Founded in 2015 with offices in London and Singapore, we have many thousands of users of our B2B platform across the globe. Brands using Tyk range from Singapore Post and Skills Future Singapore, to global organisations like Capital One, the Financial Times, and Starbucks. We have a varied user base hailing from every continent - even Antarctica.
Our Mission
The internet started by connecting mainframes, by the end of the 20th century 600m desktop and laptop computers exchanged email and web-traffic.

Today around 15 billion 'things' are connected to the internet, growing at a rate of a billion per year.

Tyk are committed to enabling interconnectivity between systems and between devices. We've started by building an API Management platform.
