Layer 7 updates mobile access gateway solution
Posted on 28 August 2013.
Layer 7 Technologies announced updates to its SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway, a middleware solution that simplifies enterprise application management.


Among its new features, it adds enhancements to instrumenting identity and single sign-on (SSO) on mobile devices, offers streamlined controls for OAuth and OpenID, simplified SSL management and termination optimized for mobile apps, and more geolocation access controls.

With more organizations incorporating BYOD policies and building mobile enterprise apps, the need for API management solutions to connect enterprise and cloud data to mobile apps is on the rise. A recent Layer 7 survey found mobility programs to be the top driver of increased demand for API management among IT professionals.

The original Mobile Access Gateway, released in June 2012, was built to address these challenges and help organizations tackle the unique identity, data security, and mobile optimization issues that arise from establishing API access between the enterprise and mobile backend. Mobile Access Gateway 2.0 provides extended protection and management capabilities within the mobile app ecosystem with its added functionality in core identity, data security and public key infrastructure (PKI) management.

“The Mobile Access Gateway redefined API access for mobile by addressing the broad range of API identity, security and management challenges for the enterprise backend,” said Leif Bildoy, senior product manager at Layer 7. “With version 2.0, developers can now extend core identity and data security directly to the device and implement consistent SSO and security for any app at any time.”
