Tobacco firm picks Vordel web security

British American Tobacco has deployed management technology to protect XML communications across its datacentre network in 180 countries.

The company has deployed Vordel's VS3000 gateway appliances, which incorporate traditional security functions with web services management.

The appliances have been installed to protect corporate information held on British American Tobacco's SAP back-office system, securing XML-based communications when staff input or extract data from the system.

The technology covers both staff identity control and ensuring that data conforms with XML communication parameters. It has been integrated with BAT's existing security and ID management systems.
