Mobile Access Gateway 2.0 Incorporates New Features for Single
Sign-On, SSL Management, OAuth and OpenID Controls
ISLANDIA, N.Y. & VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
7 Technologies, a
CA Technologies company (NASDAQ: CA) and a provider of Application
Programming Interface (API) management and mobilization tools for the
open enterprise, today announced significant updates to its SecureSpan
Mobile Access Gateway, an easy-to-deploy middleware solution that
simplifies enterprise application management. Among its new features,
Mobile Access Gateway 2.0 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.”
Mobile Access Gateway 2.0 is available for download immediately. A trial
version with key functionality including mobile SSO can be found here http://forms.layer7tech.com/mobileaccesstrial.
