FRAMINGHAM (10/03/2003) - Start-up Layer 7 Technologies Inc. has introduced SecureSpan Solution, a set of products for securing and connecting Web services that includes a gateway appliance, a software policy manager and an agent technology.
SecureSpan Gateway enforces security and access policies across multiple endpoints, while SecureSpan Manager creates and manages the policies and routes them to agents that sit on the endpoint (the consumer of the Web service).
The gateway can deliver a different set of policies for each endpoint, according to the Vancouver, British Columbia-based company.
Layer 7 co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Toufic Boubez co-authored the Universal Description Discovery, and Integration service discovery protocol and was once the chief architect for IBM Corp's Web services initiatives.
SecureSpan Solution, priced at US$100,000, will be available this month.
