Accelerate and Secure Web Services

The Cisco ACE XML Gateway is a key component of the Cisco Application Control Engine (ACE) family of products. It brings application intelligence into the network and enables efficient deployment of secure, reliable, and accelerated Web service environments based on XML (Extensible Markup Language) and SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) using a shared, network infrastructure.

Secure Deployment

The ACE XML Gateway delivers an integrated XML firewall. It ensures that XML messages securely and efficiently reach their intended targets. It provides the critical protection needed at each service perimeter–between un-trusted and trusted zones. With a comprehensive XML threat defense system, it protects against identity, content-based, personnel, response-compliance, message-transport, and XML denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. It integrates seamlessly with existing infrastructure such as directories, SSO, PKI, and network system management.

Improved Performance

The Cisco ACE XML Gateway accelerates XML and application services by improving performance of the XML-based software applications. XML-based services require outstanding throughput to support complex integrated application systems. Such performance is delivered by the Cisco ACE XML Gateway, helping to ensure that all messages can be processed without compromising security, interoperability, or reliability. The ACE XML Gateway enables businesses to efficiently secure, accelerate, and integrate XML Web services with the market’s most extensive policy control and end-to-end performance. This allows customers to accelerate their time-to-market and gain competitive advantage in their businesses.
