Here is some new update on SOA Expressway. Release 2.4.1 was just made available to customers and a download is now available to evaluate:
It is great to see market adopting Expressway at a rapid clip, although it leads to frenetic pace around here; based on customer demand, in this release we also added 64-bit Solaris support for x86.
Now Expressway is supported on Windows, Solaris & Linux, as a virtual appliance on VMWare as well as available in a high assurance hardware appliance form-factor!
Some of the highlights include -
- Additional features for Cloud security such as
- Support for Amazon Web Services Security (AWS) for interacting with Amazon cloud services such as SimpleDB and storage service.
- Better REST Monitoring Capabilities: Shows the number of successful or failed transactions for each of the eight possible HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, HEAD, DELETE, TRACE, OPTIONS, CONNECT). HTTP messages
- Better SAML Support - SOA Expressway now supports the SAML holder-of-key confirmation method as a simple configuration. This is useful for strong authentication use cases that need strong reconfirmation of the SAML subject.
- Better Kerberos support - SOA Expressway now includes support for Kerberos tokens in its web services security policy with multiple KDC support including Microsoft Server.
- Improved XML firewalling through remote upgrades of attack signatures & policies
- Support for XSLT 2.0
