QuickTree’s XSM Brings XML Security to Every Network Device
SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 29 /– QuickTree, Inc., a leading provider of XML Aware Security software, has announced the latest release of XSM (XML Security Module).
The latest version of XSM continues to reflect QuickTree’s unique approach to the XML security marketplace by offering low-cost, embeddable XML security for any network device. Designed exclusively for OEMs, XSM hides the complexities of XML Security and allows vendors to quickly integrate this advanced solution via a source code-based software development kit to enable:
— An integrated XML Firewall solution for the OEM’s customers
— Access to the Web Services and Web 2.0 security market
— Competitive differentiation and value added
Some of the new features of the XSM release include:
— A custom secure parsing engine for XML Denial of Service
— Fine-grained Schema and WSDL validation
— XPath-based deep parameter inspection
— A streaming API so XML content is processed as fast as it arrives
The growing use of Web Services and Web 2.0 is increasing the risk of exposing sensitive information and critical infrastructure to new and more sophisticated XML attacks. “Web 2.0 is bringing SAO to the wider Internet and security is paramount as any web site can now become a service provider or consumer,” said QuickTree CEO Raghu Bathina. Servers must be protected from downtime and data loss. Also, the advent of Internet mashups, and Web 2.0’s compelling ease of use is driving a booming adoption of standards for site-to- site and browser-to-site interaction such as AJAX, SOAP, REST and XML.
QuickTree XSM is an easy-to-implement, high-performance software module that enables vendors of network equipment such as Application and Network Firewalls, Message Gateways, SSL VPN devices, and Load Balancers to inspect and secure XML traffic.
