Subject: [member NEWS] DataPower Partners with Netegrity to Accelerate Web Services Security


Integration Enables XS40 to Access and Apply TransactionMinder Policies to
Incoming XML Web Services Traffic 

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - September 22, 2003 -DataPower Technology, Inc., the
creator of intelligent XML-Aware Network (XAN) infrastructure, today
announced a partnership with Netegrity, Inc. (Nasdaq: NETE), a leading
provider of identity and access management solutions.  With the successful
integration between the DataPower XS40 XML Security Gateway(tm) and
Netegrity TransactionMinder(r), this partnership provides organizations with
industry leading policy-based identity management unified with the most
comprehensive wirespeed Web Services security device.  With this offering,
customers can leverage Netegrity TransactionMinder and DataPower's XS40 to
secure access to Web Services without performance bottlenecks or distributed
management headaches.

"With centralized access management and network-based Web Services security,
enterprises can relieve the most burdensome costs and business risks
associated with deploying Web Services," said Deepak Taneja, CTO at
Netegrity.  "The combination of Netegrity's powerful centralized Web
Services access management solution with DataPower's leading-edge XML Web
Services security enables companies to achieve high volume Web service
transactions while realizing the streamlined business processes that Web
Services provide."

"Enterprises are continuing to see the incorporation of advanced application
functionality like accelerated XML processing, XML Web Service security, and
centralized access control into networks.  This requires more intelligent
and optimized network infrastructure," said Eugene Kuznetsov, chairman and
CTO at DataPower Technology Inc.  "Augmenting Netegrity TransactionMinder
policy-based access management with a central, powerful policy enforcement
engine in DataPower's XS40 XML Security Gateway, enterprises are able to
achieve simplified management and the most complete, accelerated Web Service
security across all their Web Services endpoints."

Web Services are based on standard XML protocols that provide tremendous
flexibility, but are extremely verbose and inherently insecure. In addition
to SOAP firewall and XDoS protection, securing external-facing Web Services
requires that all requests from a Web Service consumer are authenticated and
transactions authorized based on consumer identity and security policy.
Netegrity TransactionMinder provides authentication, authorization and
auditing for Web services thereby strengthening the overall security of a
company's Web Services implementation.  DataPower offers a family of
wirespeed XML-Aware Networking devices powered by DataPower's own
patent-pending XG3(tm), (the fastest XML processing technology in the
world), to secure, accelerate and manage the XML network.  DataPower's XS40
XML Security Gateway is a true network device and enables comprehensive Web
Services security without impacting performance. The XML Security Gateway
already provides hardware-accelerated SOAP filtering, XML firewall, XML
Digital Signature, XML Encryption, WS-Security, SAML, XML schema validation
and intelligent service virtualization. DataPower's XS40 integrated with
Netegrity TransactionMinder provides the most inclusive Web Service access
management and security processing necessary to scale today's enterprise
security needs for all XML Web Service deployments.

The partnership between DataPower and Netegrity augments DataPower's support
for Netegrity's Web Services Reference Architecture announced today that
outlines the critical components, like XML security gateways, and standards
for a securing Web Services.  For more information on Netegrity's Reference
Architecture see today's announcement from Netegrity, "Netegrity Publishes
Reference Architecture to Help Organizations Simplify Web Services Security
and Management."
