Intel Expressway Service Gateway (Formerly SOA Expressway)
More Than an XML Gateway or ESB
As applications are exposed externally, an edge Service Gateway is used to abstract, secure, and simplify services delivery. More than a Security Gateway, an ESB, an XML Gateway or an application firewall, a Service Gateway delivers a unique set of features tailor made to integrate, mediate, secure, and scale services in a dynamically changing Enterprise application perimeter. Today, on-premise deployment of a centralized Service Gateway is recognized as the best practice deployment pattern for application-to-application, SOA or REST- based service interaction models. A Service Gateway enables the Enterprise to develop a standards-based policy enforcement point that is integrated with internal IdM, middleware, and auditing/monitoring infrastructure. After corporate control is established in a Service Gateway, administrators can offload security processing from middleware, safely expose APIs, and provide high speed data mediation…all from a gateway deployed at the network edge.
