Layer 7 releases XML network software for Solaris

Layer 7 has released Sun Solaris versions of its SecureSpan Extensible Markup Language firewall and XML networking gateway software.

The software works will run on Solaris 10, for both the SPARC and x86 platforms.

Layer7's SecureSpan XML Firewall inspects packets with XML data for viruses and other potentially malicious content. The SecureSpan XML Networking Gateway executes message routing, mediation, virtualization and Service Level Agreements for XML-based messages.

"We recognize that a 'one size fits all' approach simply does not work for enterprise [Service Oriented Architecture] implementations,' said Phil Walston, Layer 7 vice president of product management, in a statement. 'Adding SPARC to the SecureSpan's ... supported platforms, operating systems and form factors gives our customers increased ability to tailor their architecture to their exact needs.'

SecureSpan products are also available for Linux and Windows 2003, as well as an appliance.
