Markup language developed to be a simplified and more structural version of SGML. It incorporates features of HTML (e.g., hypertext linking), but is designed to overcome some of HTML's limitations. Security Gateway and Netegrity TransactionMinder, this partnership provides organizations with industry leading policy-based identity management unified with the most comprehensive wirespeed Web Services (1) Loosely, any online service delivered over the Web. Such usage appears in articles from non-technical sources, but not in IT-oriented publications, because definition #2 below describes the correct use of the term. security device. With this offering, customers can leverage Netegrity TransactionMinder and DataPower's XS40 to secure access to Web Services without performance bottlenecks or distributed management headaches.
"With centralized access management and network-based Web Services security, enterprises can relieve the most burdensome costs and business risks associated with deploying Web Services," said Deepak Taneja, CTO (Chief Technical Officer) The executive responsible for the technical direction of an organization.

"The combination of Netegrity's powerful centralized Web Services access management solution with DataPower's leading-edge XML Web Services security enables companies to achieve high volume Web service transactions while realizing the streamlined business processes that Web Services provide."
"Enterprises are continuing to see the incorporation of advanced application functionality like accelerated XML processing, XML Web Service security, and centralized access control into networks. This requires more intelligent and optimized network infrastructure," said Eugene Kuznetsov, chairman and CTO at DataPower Technology Inc. "Augmenting Netegrity TransactionMinder's policy-based access management with a central, powerful policy enforcement engine in DataPower's XS40 XML Security Gateway, enterprises are able to achieve simplified management and the most complete, accelerated Web Service security across all their Web Services endpoints."
Web Services are based on standard XML protocols that provide tremendous flexibility, but are extremely verbose Wordy; long winded. The term is often used as a switch to display the status of some operation. For example, a /v might mean "verbose mode." and inherently insecure. In addition to SOAP firewall and XDoS protection, securing external-facing Web Services requires that all requests from a Web Service consumer are authenticated and transactions authorized based on consumer identity and security policy. Netegrity TransactionMinder provides authentication, authorization and auditing for Web services thereby strengthening the overall security of a company's Web Services implementation. DataPower offers a family of wirespeed XML-Aware Networking devices powered by DataPower's own patent-pending XG3, (the fastest XML processing technology in the world), to secure, accelerate and manage the XML network. DataPower's XS40 XML Security Gateway is a true network device and enables comprehensive Web Services security without impacting performance. The XML Security Gateway already provides hardware-accelerated SOAP filtering, XML firewall First brought to market by Forum Systems, an XML firewall is a specialized firewall used to provide security for XML messaging such as Web services. XML firewalls are types of XML appliances that are separated from internal computer systems and frequently reside in an , XML Digital Signature, XML Encryption XML Encryption is a specification that defines how to encrypt the content of an XML element. It's recommended by the W3C.

The "assertions" are statements from a SAML authority that authenticate a user, confirm some attribute about the individual and grant or , XML schema The definition of an XML document, which includes the XML tags and their interrelationships. Residing within the document itself, an XML schema may be used to verify the integrity of the content. validation and intelligent service virtualization An umbrella term for enhancing a computer's ability to do work. Following are the ways virtualization is used.
Partitioning the computer's memory into separate and isolated "virtual machines" simulates multiple machines within one physical computer. . DataPower's XS40 integrated with Netegrity TransactionMinder provides the most inclusive Web Service access management and security processing necessary to scale today's enterprise security needs for all XML Web Service deployments.
The partnership between DataPower and Netegrity augments DataPower's support for Netegrity's Web Services Reference Architecture announced today that outlines the critical components, like XML security gateways, and standards for a securing Web Services.
