SOA Software Announces API Management Solution and Cloud Offering Validation for Compliance with Version 3.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard

SOA Software announced that its API Management solution and cloud offering have been validated for compliance with version 3.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. Last year, SOA Software attained compliance with PCI DSS 2.0. To attain validation again, the company underwent a series of rigorous audits by an independent Quality Security Assessor to ensure that it met best practices and security controls needed to keep sensitive data secure during transit, processing and storage. SOA Software is now recognized as an approved Level 2 Service Provider for major credit card brands with the latest version of PCC DSS. PCC DSS 3.0 includes expanded compliance requirements in areas such as software development reviews and testing procedures. As part of its standard security measures, the SOA Software PCI-Compliant Cloud employs multi-layer protection and data access limitations. It also monitors, defends against and mitigates cyber assaults and threats. Features include antivirus management, vulnerability scanning, a secure audit trail and resource tracking along with round-the-clock technical support by comprehensively trained SOA Software staff to maximize uptime and availability and enhance security. PCI DSS is a proprietary information security standard for organizations that handle cardholder information for the major debit, credit, prepaid, e-purse, ATM and POS cards. SOA Software’s continuing engagement with PCI DSS certifications allows it to advise customers on the most appropriate security best practices, irrespective of their industry. SOA Software’s counsel can help ensure that APIs are built on a compliant platform and extended in a compliant fashion, required tasks are dealt with by the most appropriate parties and nothing gets overlooked as enterprises roll out their APIs.

SOA Software Integrates Thales Hsms to Provide the High Level of Protection and Manage Risk in Service Oriented Architecture

Thales and SOA Software announced the integration of the Thales nShield family of hardware security modules (HSMs) with SOA Software's API Gateway, providing enhanced data protection and threat prevention for mobile, cloud and web applications. Digital initiatives are impacting every aspect of life. Businesses and governments are under pressure to deliver a richer and more consistent experience to their users across an ever wider range of channels that span in-store, at home and mobile. Furthermore, the opportunity to monetize digital content through marketing partnerships and commercial ecosystems creates a race to interconnect applications and simplify the adoption and control of integrated data-based services. This creates the need to manage a multitude of service interfaces (APIs) that span legacy as well as application technologies, cloud and on-premise based delivery platforms and a range of compliance imperatives.
