Overview:

Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and XML Web services allow enterprises to dynamically integrate their business processes and IT systems using open, standards-based specifications. Radware’s AppXML provides the foundational infrastructure enabling secure, high-performance XML and Web services communications for mission-critical applications.

Radware AppXML is a comprehensive Web services Security Gateway that functions as a trusted intermediary for exchanging secure Web Services between an enterprise and its business partners. It enables enterprises to achieve a higher ROI through secure e-business process integration.

The AppXML appliance combines hardware and software to improve the speed of XML document processing and secure XML-based communications. While XML provides a structured way to add context to data for sharing among applications, it is very data intensive and can take 30 to 50 times more bandwidth than other protocols. AppXML delivers performance gains by offloading tasks to dedicated hardware, off-loading servers, and is further enhanced by integrating AppXcel for acceleration of XML processing.

Web services security is enhanced as AppXML provides business-level protection from both non-deliberate and malicious attacks. Web services traffic is examined for attacks and malicious activity without altering or rewriting applications, quickly delivering complete and accurate application security without modifying Web services.

AppXML provides all of the administration and reporting capabilities needed to manage a web services security gateway deployment; including policy management, status monitoring, alerting, logging, and reporting activity.

Radware’s integrated approach enhances Web services and SOA deployments by:

  • Securing Web services and network from external and internal threats by validating XML structure, filtering malicious content, cloaking, and WSDL virtualization
  • Providing authentication, authorization, and auditing for Web services
  • Ensuring Web service message integrity and privacy through schema validation, SSL decryption, message encryption, and signing
  • Delivering further Security of Web services from Denial-of-Service attacks and scalability to accommodate growing capacity requirements
  • Ensuring business continuity and Web services global availability with global redirection capabilities
  • Enabling faster integration with Web services with protocol-mixing of XML and non-XML traffic, interoperability, XML processing and transformation
  • Speeding implementation with minimal disruption to application services through strong WSDL policy management, a proxy-based approach, interoperability and redundancy support

What Does AppXML Do?

AppXML is a comprehensive Web services gateway for enhancing service oriented architecture (SOA) deployments. It improves the speed of document processing and secures XML-based communications, functioning as a trusted intermediary for exchanging secure Web services between your enterprise and business partners.

AppXML offers administration and reporting capabilities needed to manage Web services security gateway deployment including policy management, status monitoring, alerts, logs and reporting activities.

What Makes AppXML Better?

By adding a layer of infrastructure between the network layers and applications, it simplifies, secures and accelerates XML and Web services deployments, helping you achieve a higher ROI. AppXML highlights include the following:

  • Improves the speed of XML document processing and secure XML-based communications by offloading tasks to dedicated hardware
  • Rich graphical reporting capabilities meets security, compliance (HIPAA, SOX) and content delivery concerns
  • Critical Web services security provides business-level protection from both unintended and malicious attacks without modifying Web services
  • Flexible content-routing based on XML and Web Services attributes
  • Comprehensive management capabilities and regulatory compliance reporting delivers complete management of a Web services security gateway
  • High availability is realized through real-time identification of faulty services and automatic switching to a functional AppXML in the farm

Comprehensive Gateway for Enhancing SOA Deployments

Designed specifically to help customers tackle the challenges of deploying web services and service oriented architectures (SOA), AppXML is an appliance that couples our APSolute application delivery platform and Forum Systems’ industry-leading XML Sentry software. It improves the speed of XML document processing and secure XML-based communications by offloading tasks to dedicated hardware.

AppXML functions as a trusted intermediary for exchanging secure web services between an enterprise and its business partners. By adding a layer of infrastructure between the network layers and applications, it simplifies, secures and accelerates XML and web services deployments helping enterprises to achieve a higher ROI.

Using AppXML with AppDirector and AppXcel promises fast, reliable and secure delivery of mission-critical web-enabled services and ensures secure and continuous on-line business activity. AppDirector’s extensive health monitoring capabilities enable real-time identification of faulty services. These services are automatically bypassed and traffic is switched to a fully functional device. AppXcel provides the additional acceleration and performance enhancements required by today’s global 2000 companies.

AppXML provides the administration and reporting capabilities needed to manage a web services security gateway deployment including policy management, status monitoring, alerts, logs and reporting activities. AppXML’s rich graphical reporting capabilities meets security, compliance (HIPAA, SOX) and content delivery concerns.

AppXML Web Services Gateway:

AppXML industry specific solutions include: government compliance, secure electronic forms, secure partner integration, secure partner collaboration, electronic notary, evidence repository, as well as secure service oriented architectures (SOA).

  • Critical Web Services Security
    AppXML provides business-level protection from both non-deliberate and malicious attacks. Web services traffic is examined for attacks and malicious activity without altering or rewriting applications. AppXML gives complete and accurate application security without modifying Web services.

  • Enhanced Performance
    Performance gains are achieved by offloading tasks to dedicated hardware, off-loading servers, and further enhanced by the integrated hardware engines for compression, caching and SSL offloading.

  • Comprehensive Management Capabilities with Regulatory Compliance Reporting
    AppXML provides all administration and reporting capabilities needed to manage a web services security gateway deployment, including policy management, status monitoring, alerting, logging, and reporting activity. AppXML's rich graphical reporting capabilities meets security, compliance (HIPAA, SOX) and content delivery concerns.

  • Seamless Deployment and Integration without Changing Existing Network
    AppXML can be transparently activated to expand the functionality of Radware's application delivery solutions without making network architecture, router or server changes. Radware's approach delivers an integration solution for external traffic with internal infrastructure using protocol conversions, transformations and smart routing.

  • High Availability with Real-Time Failure Bypassing
    AppDirector's extensive health monitoring capabilities enable real-time identification of a faulty AppXML service, automatically bypassing it and switching the traffic to a fully functional AppXML in the farm.
