SOA Software Provides Advanced SOA Infrastructure for eTrust SiteMinder and eTrust TransactionMinder Customers
SANTA MONICA, Calif.—November 14, 2005—SOA Software, the leading provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services management, security and governance solutions, today announced that it has formally achieved the status of Technology Partner under the Computer Associates (CA) eTrust Technology Partner Program. This status recognizes the interoperability of SOA Software’s award-wining products with CA’s eTrust SiteMinder and eTrust TransactionMinder customers. SOA Software has been a recognized Netegrity partner since 2003.
“As CA customers embrace service oriented architectures, they’re looking for solutions that can complement their CA-based identity management platforms with value-added capabilities,” said Barbara Lanci, CA’s vice president of eTrust Business Development. “SOA Software provides these capabilities by allowing user identities to be fully leveraged across multiple service management disciplines.”
Using its advanced integration with eTrust SiteMinder and eTrust TransactionMinder, SOA Software’s Service Manager offers customer a complete identity-based SOA Infrastructure solution. It provides true, seamless, end-to-end single-sign-on from Web application to back-end Web services, and offers comprehensive identity aware SLA and dynamic management features.
Identity-based SOA Infrastructure integrates the concept of identity with all management functions including SLAs, auditing, billing and service provisioning. As an enterprise scales its use of services, these capabilities become an essential part of the definition of effective governance for key operations ranging from service quality and monitoring, to regulatory compliance.
The benefits of identity-based SOA Infrastructure include:
• End-to-end single-sign-on between web and Web services environments
• Comprehensive end-to-end, user-based transaction auditing – essential for SOX compliance
• Dynamic, user and role-based service-level management – commit to and deliver on different service levels for different user communities
• Federated identity integration – facilitates business-to-business Web services security
“This technology partnership builds on our long history of successful collaboration with CA’s Netegrity team,” said Roberto Medrano, EVP of Marketing at SOA Software. “We have developed a very strong technology relationship with CA, and have implemented advanced SOA Infrastructure solutions combining our products with CA’s eTrust SiteMinder and eTrust TransactionMinder for several Fortune 500 companies.”
