The Reactivity XML Firewall sits at the edge of the corporate network to 
secure message flow between distributed applications. It is an XML proxy 
that performs threat defense, authentication, authorization, auditing, XML 
validation and routing to secure bi-directional message flow. By decoupling 
security from application development, the Reactivity XML Firewall 
eliminates the time-consuming and costly process of custom security 
programming, infrastructure integration and security policy maintenance for 
each XML Web service application.
