Mobile Security & Management for the Enterprise: SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway

Layer 7 SecureSpan Mobile Access GatewayThese days, enterprises face an increasing array of Mobile Access challenges, from BYOD to mobile device management. We live in an increasingly mobile and app-based world. More and more enterprises have mobile-enabled workforces that need access to enterprise data from personal smartphones and tablets.

But how do enterprises balance access control with the individual’s right to choose the apps they want? How do enterprises grant access to sensitive on-premise data via mobile devices without compromising security?

Enterprises need secure ways to surface internal information assets in mobile ready formats that can be easily consumed by both mobile developers and the apps they create. They need simplified ways to manage how enterprise applications and systems get exposed to mobile developers and apps.

Layer 7′s new SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway does just that by streamlining the process of adapting internal data, application and security infrastructure for mobile use. Delivered as a policy pack extension to our SecureSpan API Proxy/SOA Gateway, the Mobile Access Gateway provides a centralized way to control security and management policies for information assets exposed via APIs to mobile developers and apps.
