SOA Software Certifies JBoss as a Governed Service Platform

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform Certified

Los Angeles, Calif., February 14, 2008SOA Software, a leading Integrated SOA Governance Automation vendor, today announced that it has certified the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform as a Governed Service Platform.

Certified Governed Service Platform status means that customers can be confident that their platforms won’t compromise the fidelity of the governance systems and structures defined in an enterprise SOA program.  The certification process ensures that Governed Service Platforms can implement and enforce governance policies providing reporting data to enable a closed-loop audit process.

“Governance Initiatives are rapidly gaining momentum amongst platform vendors, Governance solution providers, and end-user customers,” said Frank Martinez, executive vice president of SOA Software.  “The addition of JBoss to the list of Governed Service Platforms highlights the importance of this certification for platform vendors.”

SOA Software’s certification of JBoss shows the rapid growth of SOA Governance as the leading driver of SOA adoption.  Customers can use the JBoss Enterprise SOA platform as an alternative to their commercial service platforms.  The Governed Service Platform status ensures that JBoss can be consistently governed along with other enterprise service platforms.

“SOA Software’s certification of JBoss allows enterprise customers to confidently deploy the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform as part of their enterprise SOA program,” said Pierre Fricke, director of product line management, Middleware Business, Red Hat.  “SOA Software provides a leading Integrated SOA Governance solution that ensures the security, reliability, and applicability of the services exposed and consumed by the JBoss platform.”
