Alcatel-Lucent has announced a product integration that brings together the HP SOA Systinet governance software with Alcatel-Lucent’s OmniAccess 8550 Web Services Gateway.
The solution provides a unique ability for enterprises to ensure that information access policy designed into their service oriented architecture (SOA) applications is enforced at run time. This enables enterprises to maintain strict control on access to its private information while automating its business processes.
“Positive trends are forming where security is designed and embedded into business processes,” said Michael Suby, director at Stratecast (a division of Frost & Sullivan). “Alcatel-Lucent and HP are hitting this trend with their joint solution that links design time policy authoring and compliance validation with comprehensive run time enforcement.”
The combined Alcatel-Lucent and HP solution offers highly secure governance and regulatory compliance capabilities that let enterprises fully benefit from SOA, while mitigating potential security risks associated with traditional SOA deployments. This solution is a must for organisations that require adherence to strict information privacy legislation, in industries such as healthcare, government, finance, and education.
