Version 3.0 available of Web Services Gateway

Alcatel-Lucent : 15 April, 2009  (New Product)
OmniAccess 8550 from Alcatel-Lucent moves to version 3.0 and gains Gartner recognition for SOA Governance
Alcatel-Lucent has announced release 3.0 of the Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess 8550 Web Services Gateway (WSG), a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) appliance that lets enterprises and service providers deliver an open and secure web services environment for their customers' business-to-business transactions and Web 2.0 services. Alcatel-Lucent's WSG ensures that companies transforming their businesses through business process automation, Web 2.0 and Cloud Computing services can secure and govern how users interact online to prevent fraud, mitigate risk and maintain compliance.

Associated with the timing of the new release, Alcatel-Lucent appears for the first time in the 2009 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SOA Governance, placing in the "visionary" quadrant. According to the Gartner report, visionaries help articulate important market trends and direction.

"Market trends indicate that corporations will increase their reliance on cloud-based services and securing interactions with the cloud will be critical for proper governance," said Frank Kenny, research director for applications strategy and governance at Gartner. "It will be important for corporations to choose vendors that have the experience to provide the security, management and audit capabilities to support multiple deployment models from B2B across the internet to being a trusted intermediary for consuming and supplying cloud services."

Cloud computing implies the use of Internet-based, sometimes virtualised, resources and services.

Recognised as a visionary product, the Alcatel-Lucent 8550 WSG release 3.0 provides a finely detailed level of control that enables innovative service providers to securely provide new internet-based, revenue-generating services. Protected by the WSG, a service provider could allow a third-party entertainment company, for example, to provide localised movie schedule information to a user without jeopardising either the third party or end-user's data.

Key technology developments in the Alcatel-Lucent 8550 WSG release 3.0 include:

- Detailed, context-sensitive capture of usage patterns that lets organisations monitor and adapt to security breaches -- including fraudulent transactions from trusted users

- Efficient, flexible, high-performance policy evaluation and contextual policy enforcement for protection of private information

- Granular views of user-centric web services, ensuring authorised individuals (including those offering third-party services) have access to the information they require

- Enhanced monitoring of user interactions and web services, ensuring specified service level agreements

"The 8550 Web Services Gateway provides the enterprise a reusable corporate-wide infrastructure that can be applied to many facets of governance, from security to compliance," said Michel Emelianoff, Alcatel-Lucent vice president of enterprise security solutions. "The new functionality offered with release 3.0 better meets the needs of Alcatel-Lucent's enterprise and service provider customers."
