Vordel previews next generation SOA Security & Management technology at Annual User Conference
4th generation XML gateway and Web Services management technology unveiled to key industry audience
Dublin, Ireland June 21 2006 - Vordel, the SOA Security and management company today previewed at its annual user conference, its 4th generation XML security gateway and Web Services management product suite to industry acclaim. The Vordel product suite provides enterprises with the confidence to deploy SOA in a controlled and safe manner.
SOA Security and Management technologies enable enterprises avoid the risk of Web Services "flying under the radar", bypassing security and management safeguards that were put in place for older pre-SOA systems. Uniquely in the market, Vordel provides products for all of these SOA Management requirements.
Vordel's next generation suite includes:-
- VordelSecure - XML gateway. Software for Windows, Linux and Solaris. Offloads critical security processing from Web Services applications and ensures performance and throughput.
- VS4000 - XML security appliance. Performance optimized protection for Web Services against attack and unauthorized usage.
- VordelDirector - Web Services Management. Enforces policy adherence and monitoring of all XML traffic via agents distributed at each Web Service "endpoint".
- Vordel SOAPbox Security testing - Security testing allows security professionals to check for compliance to security policies.
Patented XML Security Acceleration
Common to the enterprise products in the suite is Vordel's core patented XML security acceleration engine. In development since 1999, this engine offloads critical XML security processing from XML platforms and allows trusted XML applications to be rolled out without the performance cost.
State-of-the-Art Policy Management Interface
An intuitive drag-and-drop policy management interface allows for creation of policies to manage XML traffic on the network. Other ease-of-deployment features include the automatic generation of XML schema validation files from WSDL, and a tree-view XPath editor. A command-line interface is used to import and export policies for "headless" configuration.
Vordel CTO, Mark O'Neill, welcoming this next generation announcement stated, "Effective security performance and management complexity have been identified as obstacles to the successful rollout of SOA deployments. Vordel's technology successfully addresses these concerns and with this next generation of product we have produced the complete SOA security and management solution.
