VordelSecure XML security product

Vordel Offers Early Access to XML Security Product for Next-Generation Partner Integration

"One of first vendors to leverage the latest XML-based security standards" - Burton Group

Boston, MA, USA / Dublin, Ireland. 18-June-2002.

Vordel, the Web services security company, today launched the Early Access program, for the forthcoming release of its XML Security product, VordelSecure 1.1

The VordelSecure Early Access Program will allow qualifying companies to demonstrate and justify the use of Web services to themselves and their partners, by addressing the security challenges presented by their deployment.

VordelSecure 1.1 is the latest release of Vordel's solution to Web services partner integration security issues, providing open-standards authentication, accountability and authorization.

Norbert Mikula, Director of Web Services Technology at Intel Corporation said; "XML Web Services provide opportunities for corporations to introduce improved efficiencies and enhance return on investment for software systems.

The resolution of the security and performance challenges being addressed by Vordel are critical to the success of Web services. The combination of Vordel's focus on security and the performance benefits of Intel Itanium processor based servers provide a great foundation for Web services."

"Many organizations are planning to deploy Web services in order to take advantage of the efficiencies enabled by XML-based integration," said Mark O'Neill, Vordel CTO. "For partner integration projects, clients understand that the introduction of Web services presents a security challenge. VordelSecure provides the first solution to address this security challenge - providing both access control (security based on identity validation) and content-filtering (security based on data validation)."

"Vordel is one of the first vendors to leverage the latest generation of XML-based security standards, providing the framework for enabling secure Web services," said Phil Schacter, Director Network Strategy Service at Burton group.

"Companies need a trusted platform and standards-based infrastructure to deliver business services over the Web."

"Vordel supports these new XML security specifications in VordelSecure, including SOAP, SAML and WS-Security as well as more established security technologies such as digital certificates and SSL," continued O'Neill.

"This ensures that the user base of an XML Web service is not limited to the users of one security technology, while not compromising on security."

Derek O'Carroll, CEO of Vordel went on to say that "the Early Access program allows these companies to use VordelSecure for Web services security, in order to demonstrate that the use of Web services is indeed a viable proposition".

"Web services technology providers, in conjunction with security provided by Vordel, have significant advantages over leased lines or VPNs, in terms of ease of deployment and cost." continued O'Carroll.

"Vordel's Early Access Program will mean that security does not need to be left as a 'last-minute' decision."
