Los Angeles, CA – Feb 25, 2013– SOA Software, a leading provider of Enterprise API Management and SOA Governance solutions, today announced SOA Software OAuth ServerTM, the industry’s first comprehensive OAuth solution for the enterprise.  SOA Software OAuth Server extends existing enterprise identity and access management systems, allowing users to use their enterprise credentials to login and control access to their data from partner and cloud applications.

SOA Software’s OAuth Server is an enterprise authentication and authorization product.  It provides a comprehensive security token server that integrates with enterprise identity and access management systems providing the latest Web and API security standards including OpenId and OAuth.
