Alcatel-Lucent has teamed up with HP on a product that will aim to secure service-orientated architectures (SOAs).
The system will link SOA governance with an enterprise-wide run-time compliance infrastructure.
A product integration brings together the HP SOA Systinet governance software with Alcatel-Lucent's OmniAccess 8550 Web Services Gateway.
The system enables enterprises to ensure that information access policies built into their SOA applications is enforced at run time. This enables enterprises to maintain strict control on access to its private information while automating its business processes.
"Positive trends are forming where security is designed and embedded into business processes," said Michael Suby, an analyst at Stratecast. "Alcatel-Lucent and HP are hitting this trend with their joint solution that links design time policy authoring and compliance validation with comprehensive run time enforcement."
