Title: OASIS Member News: Layer 7 Technologies Introduces Next Generation Clusterable SOA Security



XML Security and Networking Leader Shows Successful Interoperability with Leading Application and Middleware Vendors of Key SOA Standard


Interop, Las Vegas, May 3, 2006 – Layer 7 Technologies, a leader in XML Security and Networking today announced successful Web Services Policy (WS-Policy) interoperability with leading Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) application and middleware vendors including SAP, IBM, BEA, Sun and Microsoft. WS-Policy is an emerging W3C standard for expressing the security, reliability and transactibility requirements of interacting Web services in an SOA. Layer 7 is the only XML Gateway vendor to have participated in the SAP hosted WS-Policy Interoperability Workshop held April 25th through 27th in Walldorf, Germany.


“WS-Policy provides the missing ingredient in WS-* that will enable interoperable configuration, discovery, and enforcement of advanced operational semantics, such as security, reliability, and transactions,” explained Anne Thomas Manes, VP & Research Director at Burton Group. “Many organizations choose to use an XML Gateway as a centralized policy enforcement point to increase scalability and performance of SOA message traffic, and WS-Policy support will enable seamless integration with the administration systems of the leading SOA platforms.”


“WP-Policy is a vital component of the WS-* architecture and a key feature of

Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation,” said Ari Bixhorn, Director of Web

Services Strategy for Microsoft. “As such, WS-Policy capable XML Gateways provide

an important enforcement and management function for enabling secure, reliable

and transacted Web Services.”


Added Dr. Toufic Boubez, CTO of Layer 7 Technologies, “WS-Policy is central to

delivering loosely-coupled Web services for flexible business integration. By

supporting WS-Policy, the Layer 7 SecureSpan XML Gateway helps enterprises

preserve flexibility without compromising security, scalability and manageability.”
