TechHub mBaaS for Service and API orchestration & App Security
Why you need a mBaaS solution
App service and API orchestration
Mobile Apps rely heavily on services enabling functions required by your customer. Without a set of standard and advanced dedicated services in support of your apps business model or service model, apps go numb. That’s why a mBaaS platform for your app makes sense. It allows to manage and maintain those services, keep them in lifecycle and advance them during the app lifecycle to constantly innovate.
We offer a vast range of mBaaS micro services with client SDKs under one mBaaS solution model. This unified approach makes it easy to integrate, keep dependencies under control and to orchestrate required services throughout the life cycle of your app.
App data and metrics
Under one orchestrated mBaaS solution gathering and combining data from your apps on multiple platforms becomes a reality.
It allows and enables advanced analytics which would cause great difficulties if not unified under one approach. Our mBaaS solution and it’s modular client side SDK model enables you to centralise platform data, generate meaningful metrics and observe, moderate and execute based on event driven data to optimise your business case, marketing and sales or application logic.
App management and security
While the IT components like API’s on premise are under control of your IT, public API’s and connected cloud solutions are managed independently and could go rogue. TechHubEU mBaaS enables you to mitigate this risk and add additional layers of control to your mobile app. Apps registering on our mBaaS platform are protected from possible third party access to cloud based API’s or services. We provide a range of SDK modules which provide with a high level of protection against these threats. App communication backends, service consumption and third party API integrations become manageable and our mBaaS platform and management interfaces hands back control to your IT management.
Apps and understanding the threat scenario
Let’s assume, a larger company has released a widely used app which during its lifecycle gathered multiple integrations with publicly accessible services. By integrating apps directly with third party services and API’s the app has been exposed to multiple levels of security risks like: Unrestricted and unmanaged access to service API’s consumed by the app, unmanaged access to communication channels like notifications, messaging backends or other services on third party platforms. While this is a very realistic scenario, most enterprises have not put in place any measure to orchestrate or manage to mitigate the risk associated with this. By the time rogue messages, illegal deep-linking and tampered API responses start to reach their customers, it’s too late to stop the damage taking place.
