MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- Appcelerator, provider of the leading mobile enterprise platform, today announced plans for a multi-tiered integration with MobileIron, a leader in security and management for mobile apps, content and devices. The integration delivers the rich functionality enterprises need to streamline the delivery and management of secure mobile apps, to create more successful mobile app portfolios across their organizations.
The rise of mobile technologies is creating a sea change in the enterprise, with major opportunities ranging from increased customer engagement to employee productivity and collaboration. It is also forcing enterprises to rethink their app delivery process. To deploy a successful mobile app strategy, enterprises need to rapidly deploy tens or even hundreds of employee-facing apps, all while maintaining security of sensitive corporate data. This integration yields several product integrations between Appcelerator and MobileIron, providing new pre-deployment and production capabilities to meet this growing need. These include:
- Click-to-Publish: Publish apps for approval into the enterprise store from within the Appcelerator Platform development environment, reducing manual steps and speeding delivery. This is modeled after the same approach available today for publishing apps to public app stores like Apple's App Store and Google Play.
- App-Wrapping: 'Wrap' apps to add additional security capabilities, such as on-device and over-the-air encryption, as well as app- and data-wipe, before publishing to enterprise app stores. This allows developers to add additional levels of security without modifying the app, and ensure security regardless of how devices are managed.
- App Containerization: Add significant levels of security management, such as access control policies, encryption configuration and reporting, directly within the app code. This also allows the distribution of apps to both public and enterprise app stores, as well as real-time provisioning.
"Apps are at the heart of every Mobile First initiative," said Ojas Rege, vice president of strategy, MobileIron. "The integration between MobileIron and Appcelerator gives enterprises the app development, distribution and security platform they need to create great mobile user experiences for their most critical business processes."
"Our integration with MobileIron demonstrates our commitment to openness and extensibility through our Appcelerator Platform, to give our customers the broadest set of capabilities to deploy and manage enterprise mobile apps," said Jeff Haynie, CEO, Appcelerator. "Enterprises need to ensure security and control over their data, but also need to deploy dozens of apps a year or more, which deliver amazing experiences to their employees. We're relentless in helping enterprises manage all of their mobility needs with our Appcelerator Platform, which allows them to build apps, connect to backend data and measure performance with real-time analytics."
The click-to-publish integration between MobileIron and the Appcelerator Platform is available now with the app wrapping and containerization integrations planned for later in 2014.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
