Annual Ranking at Security Growth Conference Recognizes Achievements in Closed Loop SOA Governance
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - May 30, 2007 - SOA Software, the leading provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services governance, management, security, and mediation solutions, today announced that it has been named one of “100 Middle Market Security Companies You Should Know” by USBX Advisory Services at the annual Security Growth Conference. The Security Growth Conference is a comprehensive gathering of key global leaders, independent corporate innovators and investment professionals, all attending with the purpose of exploring new business opportunities and ways to leverage their company’s strengths to achieve greater success. USBX Advisory Services is one of the event’s founders.
SOA Software merited its place on the ranking by USBX in recognition of the company’s advanced security capabilities in the new software paradigm known as Service-Oriented Architecture, or SOA. In particular, the company was acknowledged for its unique ability to provide security for XML Web Services throughout the entire life cycle of this type of software, from design time through run time - a characteristic known as “closed loop SOA governance.” The SOA Software WorkbenchTM is a closed-loop SOA governance product, integrating UDDIv3 registry technology with a powerful repository and policy management system. It can be deployed alongside Service ManagerTM, SOA Software’s robust SOA security and management product to provide a comprehensive closed-loop governance system.
“We are very pleased to be endorsed by thought leaders in such an advanced area of technology,” said Roberto Medrano, executive vice president of SOA Software. “Industry trends show that closed loop SOA governance is becoming the sine qua non of enterprise architecture from here on out.” “The companies we rank are emerging leaders in the next wave of security offerings,” said John E. Mack, III, co-founder and CEO of USBX Advisors. “The middle market is where we see the most exciting growth and innovation in security. We have high expectations for SOA Software to lead the market with its comprehensive SOA Governance approach to security.”
The “100 Middle Market Security Companies You Should Know” ranking also includes such firms as Barracuda Networks, Cogent Systems (NASDAQ: COGT), Cybertrust, Digimarc, NetIQ, and VoxCom (TSX: VOX.UN)
