Easily implement robust mobile application security to protect your sensitive data

In a world where there is sensitive business information that is being accessed by users from a wide variety of devices, whether it is their desktop, laptop, tablet or even their smartphones, so having a comprehensive and robust application security is critical.

Alpha Anywhere addresses this core issue of information security by providing you with the right tools that you need to easily secure your sensitive data and protect your business as well as protect your businesses clients.

Security Framework built-in

You can easily add a sophisticated application security system to your businesses web or mobile app which is running on the Alpha Anywhere Application Server. As a business you can track users, pages and groups to make sure that only authorised users can see the appropriate data and you can also be able to ensure that your data is up to date and can only be modified by those users who have the correct permissions by setting field-level access controls. Alpha Anywhere security system will test every page and file requests so that you don’t need to write up any code or place any code onto the individual pages.

Login/Logout component fully integrated

You can save yourself the effort of building a separate login screen and let your user’s login directly any page with Alpha Anywhere login/logout component. It is complete with new user registration and a password administrator to help with those lost or forgotten passwords, the built-in component works with the integrated application security system this is by opening a small drop-down which can be customised and animated fully.

Some features of the login/logout component which will allow you to:

  • You can hide the controls when no one is logged in, and then display all the controls that is allowed for the user once they login.
  • Set some rules for validating acceptable login names.
  • You can define when the login expires.
  • Display a warning message when a session is due to expire as there has been inactivity.
  • You can lock out a user after a set number of failed login attempts.
  • Create a log of login activity of any user.
  • You can use a specific template to use for the message which is displayed in the menu bar after a user logs in. The message typically indicates the name of the logged in user.
  • Customise a login failure message which can be translated into multiple languages.
  • You can add a “register new account” link. The link can be shown on the menu bar beside the login link, wither on the actual login dropdown or both.
  • If you wanted to you can lock out any user by using the user id or you can unlock any user who has been locked out.

HMAC and SSL support with data encryption

For your businesses web and mobile applications, you can guarantee your data’s security with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and HMAC (Hash-based Message Authentication Code) support for web services. This is very useful for verifying file uploads and downloads, as well as digitally signing and encrypting emails and for signing e-commerce documents as required by sites such as Amazon.

Alpha Anywhere’s integration with the .NET framework will allow for a full set of encryption functions, so it is easy to implement an HMAC while the SSL support gives you the peace of mind knowing that your usernames, passwords, and other communications are safe.
