SOA Security

Secure and Reliable Interoperability – Delivered


The primary goal of our security services is to ensure safe interoperability between products and services used by customers. Interoperability is at the heart of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). However, it is this openness of SOA that creates precarious security challenges.

At CDS, we address SOA security issues head on – assessing confidentiality, integrity and availability – and inspect the technologies, tools, standards and architectures used to ensure you are running in a secure SOA environment. 

Client Challenges

Strengthen your SOA security regulations to stay compliant

Growth in SOA also means increased regulations in privacy and data security. Financial and legal penalties for lapses in security may be severe. Organizations must address various SOA security issues to meet regulations:

  • Quickly constructed applications lack tightly coupled security mechanisms inviting unplanned, insecure reuse.
  • Unmanaged endpoints introduced by the inherent complexities of SOA systems can expose sensitive operations and data.
  • Difficulty in integrating security when using multivendor environments challenge existing security mechanisms.
