Check Point unveils Web services security upgrade
Check Point customers who already use the company's Internet security software FireWall-1/VPN-1 will receive an upgrade to secure their Web services traffic from next month.
The upgrade would enable customers to secure XML and Simple Object Access Protocol (Soap), in anticipation of these becoming the dominant communications methods used between applications and among corporations.
Enterprises could share information between business applications securely without compromising the integrity of their networks, claimed April Fontana, product marketing manager for Check Point.
Neil Gehani, senior product manager with Check Point, said financial and technology enterprises were likely to be the first to employ the software, followed by government departments and healthcare.
