Vordel and Insight Consulting launch XML security programme in UK 'XML Security QuickStart Programme' to bring best practice to UK businesses
July 6, 2004 - London, UK - Vordel, the XML Web Services security company, and Insight Consulting, the leading UK provider of independent services and solutions for information security, today launched the XML Security QuickStart Programme.
"Companies seeking to implement systems using XML and Web Services can find themselves daunted by the many new security issues they raise, and the potentially opaque nature of the subject," said Ian Price, Head of Marketing with Insight Consulting. "With QuickStart, we make the issues clear, and show you the right techniques, and the correct technologies, to counter them."
Tim Crossley, VP Sales at Vordel, noted that "the program is a fast and cost-effective way to implement and evaluate the benefits of an XML and Web Services security solution".
"QuickStart includes all of the products and professional services necessary to pilot the right XML security solution for participating organisations," continued Crossley, "and will also confirm the value of XML to the companies' IT and commercial strategies."
The programme defines a security architecture and roadmap for the IT integration infrastructure, provides internal and external security testing of a pilot solution, and an awareness workshop for companies' IT application and security specialists. It also includes installation and configuration of the appropriate Vordel product to secure one external and internal Web Service or XML data flow, and a rebate on future licence purchases of Vordel products.
QuickStart also establishes a production security platform that can be extended when required, and leverages clients' existing security infrastructure components.
