Increase employee productivity and create IT cost savings

However, this wave of mobile migration also brings a number of legitimate areas of concern for supporting IT organizations:
The enterprises that benefit most from this transformative phase of technology will be the ones that can quickly exploit the new benefits of mobile access and successfully address the concerns that arise from bringing mobile technology into the workplace.
The most effective way to achieve this is through leveraging those IT assets that best align with the enterprise’s security policies, SLAs and skills – and that most efficiently enable operational and financial gains through BYOD mobile access. Network-accessible APIs encapsulate core business functions that can be used by mobile apps to achieve these benefits. A Mobile Access Gateway for proxying APIs provides the security enforcement, traffic management and developer tooling that connects apps to APIs and manages all the associated risks.
Layer 7 is the leading enterprise integration Gateway technology in the industry today. Layer 7’s API Management Suite of products is uniquely placed to address both the functional requirements for enterprise mobile access and the non-functional needs of enterprise IT:
By using the Layer 7 API Management Suite to create a Mobile Access Gateway for enterprise APIs, companies can rapidly enable their employees to use mobile devices for core business functions, leading to improved productivity, reduced costs and higher job satisfaction.
