Combined Offering Delivers Comprehensive Governance to Enterprise Web 2.0 Applications

- Governance of SOA Services accessed through JackBe’s Enterprise Web 2.0 platform.
- Quality of service for SOA Services in an AJAX architecture,
- Comprehensive security for browser-to-SOA service communication,
- Design-time and run-time SOA access governance.

“This partnership offers tremendous benefits for our customers,” said Luis Derechin, CEO of JackBe. “AJAX has come of age, and the IT community now demands serious enterprise-class governance of Web services that interact with AJAX clients. With this partnership, we are now prepared to offer a complete, producer-to-consumer solution to our customers.”
