Gizmox Secures Visual WebGui HTML5 Platform


Gizmox has enhanced the security features of its Visual WebGui enterprise HTML5 platform. New access control features permit developers to set form-level security permissions and integrate directly with Active Directory and LDAP.

Developers can use Visual WebGui to build HTML5 applications using tools like C#, .NET, and Visual Studio. The firm says that it has built "thoughtful application architecture" to extend enterprise class security to the desktop and mobile web.

"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 — plus a simple, but responsive, HTML5 user interface on the client," said the company.

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," said Itzik Spitzen, Gizmox CTO.
