Oracle Enterprise Gateway Enhances Security and Control of SOA and Cloud Environments

Oracle today announced Oracle Enterprise Gateway, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g that secures, accelerates, integrates and routes XML, Web Services and other types of data to help lower integration costs and reduce deployment risks.

Oracle today announced Oracle Enterprise Gateway, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g that secures, accelerates, integrates and routes XML, Web Services and other types of data to help lower integration costs and reduce deployment risks.

Oracle LogoOracle Enterprise Gateway is designed to secure service-oriented architecture (SOA) deployments on-premise, across domain boundaries, or in the cloud. It’s designed to provide an easier way to secure, accelerate and integrate XML and other types of data as well as lower integration costs and costs of ownership, and reduce deployment risks. Oracle Enterprise Gateway also offers rich integration with many identity and access management platforms, and helps streamline regulatory compliance through authentication, authorization and audit capabilities to dramatically simplify IT administration complexities.

Fully integrated and certified with Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, it offers out-of-the-box integrations with other Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g products including Oracle SOA Suite 11g, Oracle SOA Governance, Oracle Identity Management 11g, as well as Oracle Enterprise Manager.

Highlights of Oracle Enterprise Gateway include:

DMZ-class Security for SOA and Cloud environments: provides DMZ-class security and a  threat defense system at the service perimeter to SOA and Cloud environments, thus providing critical protection needed between un-trusted and trusted zones.

Accelerated XML processing: enables SOA and cloud applications to offload resource intensive XML based operations, resulting in significant performance gain by applications.

Open and standards-based: plugs into third party platforms and non-Oracle environments such as IBM, CA and RSA to help customers reduce integration costs, lower costs of ownership and lower deployment risks.

Authentication, Authorization and Audit capabilities: robust XML connectivity and security capabilities to safeguard traffic between heterogeneous environments resulting in heightened security and scalability. It provides run-time enforcement of authentication, authorization and audit rules defined by other Identity Management Products in the market.

SOA & Cloud Ready: Oracle Enterprise Gateway can be deployed in the cloud and can also mediate traffic in different data formats such as SOAP, REST, XML etc., thereby improving efficiencies associated with SOA infrastructures on-premise or in the cloud. Oracle Enterprise Gateway also manages connections to the enterprise, partners and third party cloud services. It allows central management of API keys vital for authentication to cloud services and provides enhanced security with threat protection and message redaction capabilities. Additionally, it enables organizations to aggregate multi-domain services across enterprise, partners and third-party cloud services and apply critical governance controls for service access, usage and availability, in the DMZ.

Extensible: The Oracle Enterprise Gateway is highly extensible through technologies such as Java, XSLT, JavaScript, Groovy and allows customers to complement the rich out-of-the-box provided product capabilities with functionality to meet their specific needs.

Companies worldwide are deploying SOA infrastructures using web services on-premise and in public cloud environments. While web services offer many advantages, they also present challenges, especially in terms of security and management. “Using Oracle Enterprise Gateway, our customers have enhanced security and flexibility to confidently extend their enterprise datacenter into the Cloud,” said Amit Jasuja, vice president, Oracle Identity Management.
