Forum XWall 3.0 Firewall Introduces Web Services Safeguards

Forum Systems' Forum XWall V3.0, debuting this week at NetWorld + Interop, is perhaps the first Web services firewall to address the essential elements of data-level networking. The roles and responsibilities of the IP network are changing from a packet world towards an intelligent data-level network. The next generation of data communications and internetworking is now about efficient switching, routing and exchanging of structured XML data elements instead of unstructured packets. The advent of the XML-Internet requires new solutions to secure, accelerate and manage the content flowing across local and global business networks. Today, this data moves freely across Web ports - FTP, HTTP and SSL to name a few - without specifically designed safeguards. Forum XWall V3.0 addresses this challenge with new features:

  • SSL with XML Intrusion Prevention (XIP): SSL is one of the most widely deployed network security mechanisms. However, SSL allows hidden data threats to penetrate into the enterprise - undetected with no opportunity for inspection. Forum XWall peers deep into the data packet scanning for XML-related threats such as corrupt data, XML viruses and denial of Web service attacks - before and after SSL encryption.

  • Data Authentication: While user-based authentication is a standard approach for perimeter-based security, in the extended enterprise where sensitive XML data is shared, user-based authenticated needs to be complemented with data authentication. Forum XWall introduces granular data authentication to the firewall to permission data flows, including SOAP messages. By understanding information within WSDL documents, security administrators can now control enterprise data movement over Web services.

  • Interoperability Enforcement: Interoperability at the network layer is achieved through TCP/IP. As more structured data is exchanged using XML, a new set of standards around Web services ensures interoperability at the data layer. And as Web service standards continue to evolve, conformance becomes critical. Forum XWall introduces the first implementation of WS-I Basic Profile 1.0 conformance detection and enforcement for both design-time and real-time at the edge of the network.

    Forum XWall V3.0 is available in three options: software for $2,500, PCI card for $5,000 or hardware appliance for $9,995. To download a free 60-day trial version of the Forum XWall Web Services Firewall visit .
