DataPower Wins Deal to Secure US Defense Information Systems Agency's (DISA) Net-Centric Services


Based on its Government-grade Security, Reliability and Performance, XS40 Security Gateway Selected to Secure Net-Centric Warfare Grids by DoD's Internal Network Service Provider



CAMBRIDGE, MASS, AUGUST 8, 2005 – DataPower®, the original creator and leading provider of intelligent XML-Aware Network (XAN) hardware, today announced that they have secured a contract from the US Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the DataPower XS40 XML Security Gateway™ to support the Net-Centric Enterprise Services (NCES) Service Security.  NCES is designed to achieve global interoperability within the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and considered one of the major components of the Global Information Grid, DoD’s global network for both classified and non-classified data. GIG ES will provide complete, real-time access to reliable and critical, quality information through the use of cutting-edge, Web-based, networked services. GIG ES is aimed at improving the decision-making ability of military services and business information owners by transforming the way they receive and access information.


DataPower is the most widely deployed provider of XML-aware networking devices to enable enterprises, service providers and government organizations worldwide to secure, accelerate and manage XML, Web services and message networks, including information grids. For over 5 years DataPower has been successfully implementing XML acceleration and Web services security solutions in the government sector (See: DataPower Brings Application-oriented Networking to Government Sector; Ends Free Loaner Program), with such customers as multiple US Department of Defense agencies, Veterans Affairs Administration, the Massachusetts Department of Revenue, SAIC, BAE, and Booz Allen Hamilton. By adding the DISA NCES Program to its strong list of Federal customers, DataPower demonstrates both the considerable momentum of XML-aware networking in the government space and its leadership in this demanding sector.


DataPower's message-level network devices are especially well suited to government applications:



"DISA along with other military and civilian agencies are rapidly building out XML Web service networks at Internet scale and purchasing DataPower hardware to provide content-based message routing, government-grade message-level security and centralized Web services access control," said Mark Taber, Vice President of worldwide sales at DataPower. "DISA's selection of DataPower is strong validation for both DataPower's high-end product features and the need for highly secure, reliable, high performing XML-aware network hardware in military operations."


Powered by DataPower's patented wirespeed XML processing technology, the DataPower XS40 XML Security Gateway is a member of DataPower's award-winning, application-oriented networking solution portfolio including the DataPower XA35 XML Accelerator; the DataPower XI50 Integration Appliance; and the gigabit-speed XG4 XML Chipset for OEMs.  The XS40 XML Security Gateway combines hardened security, wirespeed performance and sophisticated, patent-pending algorithms for XML threat protection and access management, including XML firewall, XDoS protection, SOAP filtering, fine-grained access control, XML schema validation, digital signatures, field-level XML encryption, XML/SOAP routing and service virtualization.


The XS40 provides both comprehensive standards support (such as WS-Security 1.0, Liberty Alliance/SAML 1.0/SAML 2.0, WS-Trust, WS-Policy, WS-SecureConversation, XACML, XPath, XKMS, WSDM, SSL, LDAP, and RADIUS), and integration with existing security, management, network, and application infrastructure (Nortel, F5’s BIG-IP, Redline Networks (now Juniper), IBM WebSphere, MQ Series, Tivoli, Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, BEA WebLogic, CA eTrust, CA Unicenter, RSA, Sun Identity Server, Netegrity, Oblix and others).
