SOA launches new Mobile Application Gateway solution
Sep 16, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
SOA Software, Inc., an API management and SOA governance company, has launched its new Mobile Application Gateway solution.
The Mobile Application Gateway solution accelerates mobile application development by abstracting the complexities of enterprise architecture from mobile app development. Its features include messaging, transport and security policy mediation, orchestration between multiple backend services, rapid prototyping, and advanced security enforcement and threat protection. All of this functionality contributes to simplifying the complex process of externalizing applications and data for mobile consumption.
"Enterprises worry about the cost and effort required to build mobile applications," said Alistair Farquharson, CTO SOA Software. "It's an understandable concern, as their existing infrastructure and services were not built to be exposed to mobile devices or external developers. With the Mobile Application Gateway, we provide an easy way to connect all of those applications, data sources and services to mobile apps ensuring security, availability, and performance."
Taking advantage of the corporate mobile app trend poses an integration challenge. Traditional API Gateways focus on service security but leave customers wanting for mediation (SOAP to REST etc), orchestration, integration with a host of other native/proprietary protocols, and the ability to quickly adapt their APIs to a constantly evolving internal services and applications environment, without breaking mobile apps or requiring frequent updates to mobile Apps. We specifically designed the SOA Software Mobile Application Gateway solution to address this kind of demanding integration through a comprehensive yet intuitive platform that is easy to deploy and available both in the cloud and on-premise, the company said.
The solution provides key management, OAuth, OpenID support and mobile SSO support to protect corporate data without compromising the mobile user experience. It also provides data, transport and message level security, threat protection and prevention and a wide array of security policies for the API publisher to ensure data protection and prevent unauthorized access, the company added.
Overall, the SOA Software Mobile Application Gateway reduces the time and cost across the lifecycle of the mobile app and the API, ensuring that they are built in line with business requirements and that the various apps and APIs all remain in sync across multiple versions. It enables enterprises to manage the entire process of designing, developing, deploying, versioning and retiring mobile apps and APIs. It provides visibility into APIs, services and other software assets, how they interrelate and how each fits into a company's business and technical landscape, the company reported.
