Webalo Receives a Patent for its "User Proxy" Technology for Mobile App Development

By Ariel Jones — January 19, 2012

Webalo, a provider of enterprise mobility infrastructure, announced that its "user proxy" technology was recently issued a US patent. The technology, created by Webalo's CTO Seth Bruder and Chief Architect Jeff Greif, is designed to improve the ease and efficiency with which mobile devices interact with enterprises.

Webalo's user proxy technology enables back-end systems, such as enterprise applications, to be engineered separately from front-end systems, such as user interfaces on a mobile device. This separation allows enterprises and system integrators to adapt and customize back-end application components without requiring front-end changes, which Webalo believes will provide end users with a more flexible and tailored mobile solution.

"User proxy technology is central to Webalo's vision for computing," said Peter Price, CEO of Webalo. "We have long known that the traditional approach of custom-building mobile apps doesn't work for customers. It doesn't scale. This is particularly a problem for customers with growing user demands and increasingly complicated requirements, including employees bringing their own devices to work. We believe this user proxy technology is an essential part of any infrastructural solution."
