Vordel Launches Mobile Gateway To Make Enterprise Applications Mobile-Ready & Secure
Vordel Adds Mobile Interface And Secured Connectivity To Enterprise Applications
New Orleans, LA - May 8, 2012
Vordel, a provider of Application Gateways for Cloud, Mobile and SOA computing, today launched at CTIA Wireless 2012 a Mobile Gateway solution to add secure mobile connectivity for Cloud-based services and on-premise enterprise applications. The Vordel Mobile Gateway is a non-invasive addition that provides secure mobile-ready APIs to new or legacy enterprise applications. The Vordel Mobile Gateway benefits enterprises by enabling the implementation of a secure mobile strategy without the need for costly re-programming of legacy enterprise applications and leveraging the existing security and identity management infrastructure.
Customers, partners, and employees alike demand access to enterprise applications and data via their preferred Apple, Android, or Windows based mobile devices. However, most existing enterprise applications are not ready to support mobile computing as they lack the requisite mobile compatible APIs (application programming interfaces). Enterprise applications need to be able to support the lightweight programming patterns of mobile computing (REST / JSON), they also need to enforce device-aware access management policies, detect and prevent attacks and be able to control API traffic coming from an exploding population of bring your own mobile devices. Vordel Mobile Gateway provides the required interface transformation; identity management integration; threat protection; traffic management and monitoring capabilities to enable legacy and new enterprise applications to support mobile applications safely and quickly.
"Mobile devices pose a higher level of security risk than traditional desktop and notebook computers. These devices use light weight operating systems that have less security provisions, and they are simply easily lost or stolen." said Mark O'Neill, Chief Technology Officer with Vordel. "Vordel Mobile Gateway adds not only a mobile-compatible interface to an enterprise application, but one that is hardened with the required security, management and monitoring provisions to ensure the mobile APIs are delivered securely."
