Rating: Gives enterprises a secure cloud backend for mobile HTML5
Here’s one for those organisations struggling to come to terms with a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) rollout. appMobi has responsed to overwhelming interest from businesses, organisations and government agencies which require complete end-to-end control of mobile app deployments for security reasons. The result is privateStack – a licensable enterprise version of its industry-leading mobile HTML5 app development and cloud services stack. appMobi CEO, Dave Kennedy, claimed, “While the consumer market for apps has skyrocketed along with explosive smartphone and tablet sales over the past few years, enterprises and government agencies who wanted to develop mobile apps with data security and deployment control have had no real way to do so.”He continued, “Ironically, privateStack illustrates how open Web technologies like HTML5 and the mobile Web can be used to create highly secure mobile solutions that can’t be duplicated in closed, vendor-owned mobile ecosystems such as those of Apple and Google.”
privateStack provides enterprises with the mobile application management capabilities to develop and deploy apps using the same technology appMobi already uses in its commercial cloud services.
The software provides end users with the ability to support native-quality HTML5-based cross platform mobile apps.
Plus it offers complete control over hosting geography, security, gateways into corporate data silos, and user authentication.
With privateStack existing corporate Web development teams can create hybrid apps using HTML5, unlike native app development, which require programming in arcane languages like Objective C.
Customers can employ appMobi’s HTML5 development tools which support hybrid app development using appMobi or PhoneGap.
privateStack also incorporates the entire appMobi cloud services platform which includes: -
- Rich Media Push Messaging
- Mobile App Analytics
- Remote App Updates
- In-App Purchasing
- ‘Gamification’ – Badges and Leaderboards
- Social Network Interfaces
privateStack is the first mobile HTML5 backend to be offered on the Amazon AWS store as an installable Amazon Machine Image (AMI), and it is available in both managed and custom configurations.
