Reactivity's New Secure SDK Speeds Web Services Integration

Enterprise developers, system integrators, and ISVs can create secure extensions to Reactivity's XML infrastructure

BELMONT, Calif., October 17, 2005 - Reactivity(r), Inc., a leader in secure XML infrastructure, today introduced a new software development kit (SDK) designed to create secure extensions to Reactivity's XML infrastructure. Enterprise developers, system integrators, and independent software vendors can now use Reactivity's secure SDK to allow custom access control systems to be used with the Reactivity Gateways for policy enforcement and to enable the Gateways to perform custom data transformations to simplify the integration of non-XML or legacy applications.

The Reactivity SDK is designed to be used in conjunction with the entire Reactivity product suite. Custom objects created using the Reactivity SDK can be easily referenced within the Reactivity Manager when provisioning policy, and then called by the Reactivity Gateway. Reactivity's life-cycle staging ensures that developers can easily test Web services and custom objects they create with the SDKs before they are deployed in production environments.

"The Reactivity SDK simplifies and speeds the integration of Reactivity Gateways with existing custom infrastructure, and demonstrates our commitment to ease of integration and to future-proofing our customers' investments regardless of infrastructure and data format," said Andrew Nash, Reactivity's CTO. "Reactivity is the first XML infrastructure provider to offer a documented and supported secure SDK program."

"The Reactivity SDK is just the tool we need to help us perform single sign-on integration between our existing applications and our partners' applications, enabling us to create the custom data transformations ourselves and execute them in the Reactivity Gateway," said Kim Olson, CMG data architect, at Carlson Marketing Group. "No other vendor enables us to accomplish this without expensive professional services for custom integration and development."

Reactivity Gateways enforce XML Web services security policies while delivering any-to-any XML Web services interoperability, and offer market-leading XML threat defense. The centralized definition, enforcement, and management of security and operational policies establish new levels of trust among applications, and help ensure compliance with privacy and data protection laws. Reactivity's dedicated appliances process and secure XML and SOAP messages to improve network and application throughput, and enable an organization's existing operations staff to operate and maintain clusters of appliances across geographically distributed data centers for maximum operational scalability.

"While identity and access control are critical to Web services security, they are really not unique to it and are part of a much broader aspect of enterprise networks," said Daryl Plummer, group vice president and chief fellow at Gartner, Inc. "An XML infrastructure SDK enables enterprises to more easily apply their current technology investments to Web services."
