Market leading integration security vendor Layer 7 Technologies announced that it is working with Oracle to provide flexible, end-to-end security for application integrations based on XML Web services. Oracle Identity Management combines with Layer 7's flexible XML firewalling and security coordination capabilities to enable security solutions that fully span Web services deployments. This gives customers the freedom to deploy standards-based, interoperable Web services integrations without compromising security or flexibility.

Comprehensive Web services provisioning, deployment and identity management capabilities are provided by Oracle Application Server 10g and Oracle Database 10g. Layer 7's SecureSpan Solution provides the ability to layer service level access control, encryption and threat protection across Oracle-based solutions in deployment. The combination offers customers the ability to seamlessly integrate their database, PKI, identity management and provisioning technology into their Web services. The result is a faster, more secure and flexible Web services implementation.

The Layer 7 SecureSpan Solution consists of three key components. The SecureSpan Gateway acts an XML firewall to protect services extending across corporate security zones or to other business partners; the SecureSpan Manager is used to define highly-granular security policies enforced by the Gateway; and the SecureSpan Agent works seamlessly with the Gateway to automatically extend and coordinate security policies to client-side applications without additional programming.
