Upcoming Webinar: How to Secure & Govern Integrations Between the Enterprise & the Cloud – A Best Buy Case Study featuring Amazon Web Services

Best Buy - Amazon Web ServicesWe know a lot of you get a great deal of value from our webinars, so we’re very pleased to announce that we’ve got a new one coming up on November 17th. Featuring input from Amazon Web Services, How to Secure & Govern Integrations Between the Enterprise & the Cloud will use the example of Best Buy’s API Developer Portal to demonstrate how an enterprise can securely integrate on-premise systems with Cloud applications.

The Best Buy API Developer portal is a superb example of how a large enterprise can leverage a hybrid on-premise/Cloud solution to scale API assets and accommodate peaks in demand, without compromising security or governance. The folks at Best Buy have been able to move into the Cloud while retaining full control of what information is shared with Cloud applications. At the same time, they’ve managed to insulate developers from the security, management and mediation challenges that often turn up with a hybrid Cloud solution.

How to Secure & Govern Integrations Between the Enterprise & the Cloud is happening on Thursday 17th November at 9am PST (which is noon EST and 5pm GMT). As with all our webinars, it will last about an hour and feature a Q&A session at the end. We had an absolutely phenomenal response to our last webinar, so we’re excited to be putting on this event with our friends at Amazon Web Services and Best Buy.

New Case Study: Alaska Airlines – API Management & Security for the iPhone

Alaska Air API Management Case StudyYesterday, we looked at how an enterprise can enable a more mobile, iPad-equipped workforce through secure, scalable API management from Layer 7. Today, it’s time to show something similar for the iPad’s little bro. Our very latest case study focuses on one of the first airlines to roll out an iPhone app.

When the folks at Alaska Airlines decided to stay one step ahead of the competition by replacing their initial iPhone release with a next-generation app combining internal data with information from external sources, they knew they needed an enterprise-level API management solution that could support API composition, caching and advanced security functionality.

And so they came to Layer 7. Find out why…

New iPad API Management Case Study

Amerigroup Case StudyThe iPad has already transformed the consumer market. Now, it’s starting to change the workplace landscape. Our new case study on a project Layer 7 enabled for Fortune 500 healthcare company Amerigroup showcases how the iPad can be used to streamline a field workforce’s case work.

Because of its intrinsic mobility and reduced need for support, the iPad is ideal for enabling a field workforce. But dealing with sensitive medical data via mobile devices raises some fairly obvious issues. That’s where we come in. We helped Amerigroup tackle the API security, lifecycle and management issues associated with exposing a custom iPad app to a field force.
