Alcatel-Lucent Launches Web Services Gateway Release 3.0

Alcatel-Lucent announced Release 3.0 of its 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.
Protected by the Web Services Gateway, a service provider could allow an entertainment company, for example, to provide its movie schedule information to a user without jeopardizing either the third party or service provider's security.

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

  • Detailed, context-sensitive capture of usage patterns that lets organizations 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 authorized 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.
