Web ServicesSecurity

A web service consumer invokes a web service by submitting a request in the form of an XML document to a web service provider. The web service provider processes the request and returns the result to the web service consumer in an XML document. Web services can also be directly invoked from web browsers, which mainly use the Hypertext Transport Protocol (HTTP) to carry out transactions. This means that traditional network firewalls alone are not enough to secure web services.

With this increased level of integration comes a host of security concerns, which our web services security practice can assist you in addressing. ZionTech has broad experience with web services security. We work with multiple vendors, giving us a broad understanding of the associated standards and technology, as well as detailed product-specific knowledge.

We leverage this knowledge and experience to provide our clients with web service security consulting services, such as:
➢ Preparation of enterprise web service security reference architectures and blueprints.
➢ Design and development of web service security XML firewalls.
➢ Integration of web service security functionality with application servers, Kerberos authentication services, and back-end systems.

ZionTech provides full lifecycle services for web services security projects, starting from the development of a strategy and architecture through implementation and integration. Additional services include review and assessment of existing solutions.
