DataPower Technology announced the availability of the DataPower XS40 XML Security Gateway, a first-of-its-kind network device purpose-built to secure XML-based applications at wirespeed across the entire enterprise with ease. The XS40 is the only device to combine wirespeed performance, comprehensive security and future-proof agility to allow enterprises to overcome the largest barrier to adopting XML Web Services both internally and externally.
Eugene Kuznetsov, founder, president & CTO of DataPower Technology said: “DataPower’s innovative XS40 product comes both from our original vision of a horizontal XML-aware network infrastructure and from our customers’ need for a practical solution. A single XS40 securely enables multiple applications without changing their code, and easily reconfigures to support future versions of XML security standards, to protect against yet-unknown threats or to enforce new corporate policies. And our announcement today of the first discloseable XS40 customer demonstrates the great success of our approach in real-world deployments.”
The XS40 Security Gateway delivers a comprehensive set of security functions that are easy to implement across enterprise applications and seamlessly integrate with existing security systems. With a choice of familiar interfaces, the XS40 enables a full range of security policies to be implemented as needed, without requiring application code changes or XML-trained network managers. The XS40 is the only device to integrate XML/SOAP filtering, encryption, digital signatures, and data validation at the message level or at the XML field level. With a straightforward GUI for rapid, secure deployment and an advanced standards-based interface for sophisticated policy definition, the XS40 satisfies the needs of both IT operations and business applications.
The XS40 XML Security Gateway is a complete product built from the ground up with full XML security in mind. To further ensure that the XS40 is ready for real-world deployments, DataPower brought in @stake to assess the functionality of the XS40 XML Security Gateway and to conduct vulnerability testing. Christopher Darby, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of @stake said: “With the XS40, DataPower addresses critical requirements for providing XML Web Services security.”
