Developers can quickly and securely build new types of apps on the PubNub Real-Time Network
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PubNub, the only global Real-Time Network, today announced the launch of PubNub Access Manager (PAM), which adds serverless access control to its cloud-based real-time infrastructure. Developers can now manage granular permissions for their real-time apps and data, allowing them to deliver powerful new types of applications. The announcement follows significant growth and momentum for the company, including the announcement of an $11 million Series B round of funding in September 2013.
The PubNub Real-Time Network is a global cloud-based infrastructure that provides the key building blocks for delivering real-time experiences at a massive scale. The addition of PAM enables developers to grant fine-grained Publish and Subscribe permissions for their real-time apps and data, without hosting authentication servers. Access control can be granted at various levels: person, device, channel or key. PAM works with any existing authentication system: Facebook Connect, Twitter, Google, LDAP and homegrown solutions. With PAM, companies don't need to host dedicated authentication servers, which can be a frequent source of performance bottlenecks.
"We're excited about the new types of real-time apps, like subscription services, point-to-point apps and social apps that developers can build on the PubNub Network with the addition of PAM," said Todd Greene, founder and CEO of PubNub. "The PubNub Real-Time Network handles all the infrastructure, scale, security and access for applications, so real-time just works."
PAM enables developers to build powerful new types of real-time apps including:
"Revolv's home automation solution lets users control their home lights, locks, thermostats and more from their smartphone. We use PubNub for reliable, real-time, one-to-one device communication between mobile phones and the Revolv in-home hub," said Lee Taylor, Head of Engineering for Revolv. "With PubNub's new Access Manager, we are able to greatly simplify our architecture so that our client-to-client applications can work seamlessly and securely over a single PubNub channel, without having to continuously hit our servers for authentication."
