At Layer 7, we often talk about how we can help enterprises open up net-centric information-sharing APIs. Often overlooked is the vital national security role APIs and net-centric computing perform – they are crucial to connecting applications residing across national agencies and even on mobile devices, vehicles and machines.
For several years, Layer 7 has proudly served national security communities in the US, Canada and Europe, with high-resiliency API security and management technologies for various SOA, mobile and Cloud initiatives. We are proud to include among our clients some of the most demanding organizations on Earth, including the US DoD, US Department of Homeland Security, US Department of Justice, US Department of Transportation and NATO.
Layer 7 is continuing its efforts to help organizations like these address the challenges and opportunities associated with SOA-based information sharing and interoperability in the context of reduced budgets, increasing cyber threats, Cloud infrastructure and the need to leverage existing systems in a networked environment.
Due to the sensitive nature of the projects, much of our work to make these efforts successful goes unheralded. However, we are thrilled that one of our recent efforts in supporting Northrup Grumman modernize the US Air Force Air & Space Operations Center Weapons System has been publicly announced.
Layer 7 is working with a consortium of vendors under Northrup Grumman to make the Air & Space Operations Center more agile and net-centric via Service-Oriented, API-based approaches to information sharing. Clearly, SOA and net-centric computing are becoming cornerstones of how applications are discovered, connected and protected and how information is shared.
