Gizmox Enhances Security Features of its Visual WebGui Enterprise HTML5 Platform

Adds form-level security features to Visual WebGui allowing developers to build fine-grain access control policies into enterprise web and mobile applications

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Gizmox, a leading provider of HTML5 platforms and development tools for building business applications for web and mobile, today announced enhanced security features of the Visual WebGui enterprise HTML5 platform.  Building on its "secure-by-design," zero-client footprint paradigm for designing highly secure HTML5 web and mobile apps, Visual WebGui now includes sophisticated access control features that permit developers to set form-level security permissions and integrate directly with Active Directory and LDAP.


Visual WebGui lets enterprise developers build HTML5 applications using familiar tools like C#, .NET, and Visual Studio.  Extending enterprise class security to the desktop and mobile web requires thoughtful application architecture.  Done right, thin-client, HTML5-based applications can provide even stronger security than native applications.  Visual WebGui enforces a development paradigm that results in applications that are "secure-by-design," with sensitive application logic and data kept on the server and a simple, but responsive HTML5 user interface on the client.

With the increased popularity of using HTML5 for building enterprise B2E web and mobile apps, IT managers need to consider access control requirements for enterprise class deployments.  The ability to set form-level user permissions adds additional flexibility for organizations looking to extend application access beyond a core group of users with identical access rights.  HTML5 platform integration with centrally managed access control technologies like Active Directory and LDAP is essential to implementing a security program that can scale with the proliferation of new business applications.


"From the beginning, the Visual WebGui platform supported enterprise-class application security. Expanding access control features with form-level security will let enterprise developers, architects and IT managers think more strategically about how to securely extend the reach of applications to a broader audience." Itzik Spitzen, Gizmox CTO.
