IBM acquires DataPower to boost SOA offering

IBM has acquired DataPower, a provider of products to speed up and improve the security of electronic transaction processing. 
The acquisition, for an undisclosed sum, will be used to expand further IBM’s offering to customers in the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) space, which sees business operations being more closely integrated with IT.

Analyst group Gartner says SOA will provide the basis for 80% of new software development projects by 2008.

IBM said DataPower is a leading provider of SOA appliance products, which enable integration and help provide security of web services. It now plans to introduce a family of SOA appliances based on DataPower technology.

DataPower products include the XI50 Integration Device, which streamlines SOA infrastructures; the XA35 XML Accelerator, which offloads XML processing; and the XS40 XML Security Gateway, which helps provide message-level web services security.

DataPower’s security features complement the SOA security management capabilities of IBM's Tivoli software, said Big Blue.
