Government agencies and private enterprises require the highest level of security for their Web services/SOA initiatives. The US National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) created Common Criteria certification and associated EAL levels to help government agencies improve security for their networks. Network security solutions that receive Common Criteria certification have been rigorously engineered to the highest degree of quality, and feature security capabilities that have been reliably implemented.
The SecureSpan SOA Gateway is the first XML Gateway certified to comply with NIAP’s Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 4 ALC_FLR.2 (EAL4+) evaluation. This certification meets the highest defence and intelligence community security needs when it comes to SOA security, management and control capabilities for on-premise and cloud-based Web service applications.
Layer 7’s SecureSpan SOA Gateway combines identity based access and federation control, message security, service mediation, service virtualization and SLA enforcement, delivering an effective governance, federated ESB and cross-domain solution for integrations that span agencies, departments and cloud.
