SOA Build, Test and Secure Paradigm

With the recent Crosscheck Networks' acquisition of Forum Systems, the SOA/XML landscape continues to trend towards market consolidation.  Enterprises now expect well-integrated products that help IT professionals across Web Service Life cycle and not just pre- or post- production alone.  

  • For building web services, consumers need to get their client-side code developed even before the services are ready.  This is where service simulation becomes critical.  
  • On the flip side, developers and testers of service providers (service endpoints) need to iteratively test the functional, performance and security characteristics of such services.  
  • Once the service endpoints are ready to go, an intermediate XML Gateway needs to be deployed to protect the endpoints.
Through well integrated products such as SOAPSonar, SOAPSimualtor and Forum Sentry, Crosscheck Networks and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Forum Systems, provide compreshensive Web Service Build, Test and Secure functionality for Industrial Web Services Deployments.
