Enabling iOS Notifications with the Mobile Access Gateway


Leverage the Apple Push Notification Service for iPhone & iPad Apps


Layer 7’s SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway simplifies the process of adapting internal data, application and security infrastructure for mobile use. 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.

This demo video provides a demonstration of the SecureSpan Mobile Access Gateway’s Apple Push Notification service (APNs) functionality. The Apple Push Notification service represents an efficient method for propagating information to Apple mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad. Essentially, it allows developers to send notifications to their apps.

The Mobile Access Gateway can be used to:

  • Send Apple Push Notifications
  • Use the APNs to track active and inactive devices
  • Maintain certificates and keys needed for a trust relationship with APNs
