LONDON --(Business Wire)--
Gartner (News - Alert) AADI - Layer
7 Technologies, a leading provider of API connectivity solutions for
the enterprise, today announced the release of its newest product, the SecureSpan
Mobile Access Gateway. This innovative, easy-to-deploy middleware
solution provides a simplified way to manage how enterprise applications
and systems get exposed to mobile developers and apps.
The proliferation of smartphones and tablets in the workplace has
created new challenges for the enterprise. At the center of many of
these challenges is the need to provide secure and reliable access to
enterprise information assets in a mobile-friendly way. The Layer 7
SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway (News - Alert) simplifies how internal information
gets exposed to mobile apps and developers while giving architects the
ability to configure security, performance and supporting integrations
in a simple, consistent way.
Benefits of the Mobile Access Gateway include:
Identity: extend enterprise LDAP & SSO to mobile access
frameworks like OAuth, OpenID Connect and JSON Web Tokens
Security: protect mobile REST & OData APIs against attack,
build custom geo-fencing policies, proxy mobile streaming protocols
like WebSockets and XMPP
Adaptation: translate and orchestrate back-end information
services into mobile-ready formats like JSON & REST
Optimization: aggregate, pre-fetch and cache data
retrieval calls for improved performance
Integration: simplify integration with notification services
and external cloud services
"Enterprises want to enable employees, partners and consumers with apps
that leverage their information assets," said Stephen Mak, product
manager for mobile, Layer 7 Technologies. "The Mobile Access Gateway
fills a need for helping enterprises manage how that information gets
exposed, secured and integrated."
The Mobile Access Gateway is available for preview immediately and will
be available for purchase on July 31.
