New Gateway Enhances Security and Improves Control of SOA and Cloud Environments
Redwood Shores, Calif. – April 5, 2011
To help enterprises secure their service-oriented architecture (SOA) deployments on-premise, across domain boundaries or in the cloud, Oracle today announced the Oracle Enterprise Gateway.
Oracle Enterprise Gateway, a key component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, secures, accelerates, integrates and routes XML, Web Services and other types of data in a simple, easy-to-use manner to help significantly lower integration costs and reduce deployment risks.
Bringing this enhanced security to SOA customers, Oracle Enterprise Gateway helps streamline regulatory compliance through authentication, authorization and audit capabilities to dramatically simplify IT administration complexities.
With the introduction of Oracle Enterprise Gateway, Oracle is strengthening two of the industry's most comprehensive and best-in-class product suites – Oracle SOA Suite 11g and Oracle Identity Management 11g – further extending its leadership in the SOA, SOA Governance and Identity and Access Management markets.
New Capabilities Bring Service-Oriented Security to Today’s Data Center
Highlights of Oracle Enterprise Gateway include:
DMZ-class Security for SOA and Cloud environments: provides DMZ-class security and a comprehensive threat defense system at the service perimeter to SOA and Cloud environments, thus providing critical protection needed between un-trusted and trusted zones.
Ultra-fast XML processing: enables SOA and cloud applications to offload resource intensive XML based operations, resulting in significant performance gain by applications.
Open and standards-based: plugs into third party platforms and non-Oracle environments such as IBM, CA and RSA to help customers reduce integration costs, lower costs of ownership and lower deployment risks.
Authentication, Authorization and Audit capabilities: robust XML connectivity and security capabilities to safeguard traffic between heterogeneous environments resulting in heightened security and scalability. It provides run-time enforcement of authentication, authorization and audit rules defined by other Identity Management Products in the market.
SOA & Cloud Ready: Oracle Enterprise Gateway can be deployed in the cloud and can also mediate traffic in different data formats such as SOAP, REST, XML etc., thereby improving efficiencies associated with SOA infrastructures on-premise or in the cloud. Oracle Enterprise Gateway also manages connections to the enterprise, partners and third party cloud services. It allows central management of API keys vital for authentication to cloud services and provides enhanced security with threat protection and message redaction capabilities. Additionally, it enables organizations to aggregate multi-domain services across enterprise, partners and third-party cloud services and apply critical governance controls for service access, usage and availability, in the DMZ.
“With the introduction of the Oracle Enterprise Gateway, Oracle is the only SOA and Identity Management vendor to offer comprehensive threat mitigation, identity propagation, secure connectivity and compliance for SOA environments,” said Amit Jasuja, vice president, Oracle Identity Management. “Using Oracle Enterprise Gateway, our customers have enhanced security and flexibility to confidently extend their enterprise datacenter into the Cloud.”
