LAYER 7 tECHNOLOGIES Introduces Next Generation CLusterable SOA Security

Latest XML Firewall Release Sets New Standard for SOA Security Scalability and Manageability

Interop, Las Vegas, May 2, 2006 – Layer 7 Technologies, a leading provider of XML Security and Networking infrastructure for SOA, today announced general availability of its 3.5 Security operating system for its SecureSpan family of XML Gateways and Firewalls. The operating system adds new clustered policy and session features for enhanced scalability and manageability.

Current generation XML Firewalls and Gateway products do not support automatic policy replication or session persistence across clustered deployments. This limits their ability to consistently and reliably enforce security policy or protect against session dependent transactional threats. The new 3.5 operating system adds automatic policy replication, session persistence and multi-gateway monitoring for simplified scaling and management of enterprise XML Firewall deployments. Like Layer 7’s entire suite of XML Gateways and Firewalls, it is accelerated using Tarari’s RAX-CP silicon.  

“Customers deploying XML security and networking solutions at the content layers of the network stack expect the same scalability and manageability they have grown accustomed to at lower layers of IP traffic,” explained Ronald Schmelzer, Senior Analyst at SOA Subject Matter Expert Firm Zapthink. “With this latest release of their XML Gateway and Firewall OS, Layer 7 Technologies gives customers that capability.”

New features of the 3.5 Security operating system include:

“With XML Firewalls and Gateways becoming more commonplace in enterprise networking environments, scalability and manageability will become increasingly paramount.” said Scott Morrison Layer 7 Technologies, Director of Architecture. “With this release, Layer 7 Technologies is setting a new standard for enterprise-grade XML security and networking.”  

Layer 7 will be exhibiting with Tarari at Interop Las Vegas from May 2-4th in booth #575. To schedule a one-on-one demonstration of the 3.5 Security operating system, please contact Dimitri Sirota, VP Marketing & Alliances for Layer 7 Technologies at dsirota@layer7tech.com.
