Akana Service Manager for ASP.NET

Many of the Web services running on the Microsoft platform today were created using Microsoft’s first generation ASP.NET-based Web Services technology and run on the Microsoft IIS Web Server. This has given rise to a growing mix of fully functional Web services within the enterprise. While adding value to every aspect of an enterprise’s IT assets, having growing set of ungoverned Web services distributed across your enterprise presents an important governance challenge. System administrators need a way to know which ASP.NET services are running, control who has access to them, manage their availability, monitor their performance, and secure them appropriately. The Akana Service Manager Agent for ASP.NET Web services addresses this challenge.

The Service Manager agent runs on Microsoft IIS and automatically discovers ASP.NET Web services, enabling selective governance of individual services. Installed from an MSI file and running natively in Windows Server, the agent enables you to define and enforce policy for selected ASP.NET Web services running on IIS. Specific features include:

  • Governance federation, including governance for and by non-Microsoft platforms
  • Metadata management
  • Mediation for interoperability
  • Policy enforcement, implementation, monitoring
  • Security policy implementation and enforcement
  • Automated PKI key distribution
