Service Manager - SOA Policy Management and Governance
Service Manager™ is the industry’s leading SOA management and security product. It follows the SOA Infrastructure Reference Model delivering comprehensive standards-based security, routing, mediation, monitoring, and management for SOA and Web services. It is the industry's most scalable and high performance SOA infrastructure product.
Service Manager is deployed together with Policy Manager™providing the industry’s broadest and deepest SOA Management and SOA Security solution. It implements and enforces policies from Policy Manager, and generates usage, performance and policy compliance metrics that it reports to Policy Manager to enable a closed-loop process for auditing that policies are being correctly enforced.
Service Manager’s intermediaries provide the foundation for SOA management, security, and run-time policy enforcement. They cover the widest possible surface area of applications and offer the broadest and deepest functionality of any SOA intermediaries on the market.
The Agents deploy into the container to ensure last-mile security and policyenforcement for services. Akana offers agents for most common Java application servers, .NET, several ESB products and several business processmanagement tools. The agents are fully functional, platform-native, and non-invasive offering complete last-mile policy enforcement including on-board cryptographic operations without having to change any deployed applications or services.
The Network Director is a stand-alone smart service router that deploys into the network supporting a wide range of intermediary patterns for routing, service virtualization, high-availability/load-balancing and others. It is fully stateless, offering exceptional performance and scalability combined with unique capabilities for mediation, routing, and policy enforcement.
The Delegate is a client-side intermediary that deploys seamlessly into consumer applications to abstract the application from the location, transport, and policies required by the services it will consume. Akana offers delegates for Java applications and .NET, and packages the delegate in a wide range of forms with simple, non-invasive deployment options for most common service platforms and containers, including ESBs and business process management tools.
