SOA Software Integrates Thales Hsms to Provide the High Level of Protection and Manage Risk in Service Oriented Architecture
Sep 2 14
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.
