Manage XML traffic and govern consumption of Web services, SaaS and Cloud offerings

Information delivery over the Internet is increasingly dependent on applications talking directly to other applications via XML. While HTML continues to be the lingua franca of the Internet, XML and related Web 2.0 technologies are increasingly at the root of emerging Web-based service offerings.

                        The Layer 7 XML Gateway minimizes risks associated with the use of XML inside the enterprise. By
                        implementing a Gateway at the edge of the enterprise, organizations are protected from the consumption
                        of potentially harmful XML content, and secured against private data leaving the organization via rogue
                        Web services calls.

                        Optimizing Performance
                        XML-based communications can be bandwidth and computationally expensive, potentially impacting
                        quality of service and even customer/partner Service Level Agreements (SLAs) arou availability of
                        application services. The Layer 7 XML Gateway can enforce SLAs through monitoring, rerouting and
                        throttling/choking to support IT operations requirements

                        Gaining Visibility
                        In order to proactively troubleshoot and prepare for capacity planning, enterprise IT managers need to
                        know how services are performing with respect to internal users, as well as external service consumer
                        demand. The Layer 7 XML Gateway provides a low cost, easy deploy solution for monitoring and
                                                   XML-based services.
