Vordel Ltd of the UK announced released today its new XML security server and XML gateway product.
VordelDirector secures service-oriented architectures, enabling developers to build in security
The software enforces security rules at the transactional level, inserting and validating security tokes inside XML messages. It also includes encryption, time-stamping and signing services.
VordelSecure, meanwhile, works at the perimeter to keep XML traffic safe. New features include reporting and management features.
Both releases support WS-Security, the specification recently approved by OASIS.
"While XML filtering security is clearly relevant, the architecture of an SOA enables and may require the ability to distribute the enforcement of identity-based rules," said Burton Group analyst Phil Schacter in a statement. "Such identity-based rules should leverage existing identity management infrastructure and federated identity mechanisms."
