Review: XML Gateways

Network Computing tested three security devices and, although they all impressed, our top pick edged past the others thanks to stellar performance, flexibility and integration. Find out which one it is.

Web services are growing in importance, and the best way to protect them is by using a dedicated firewall. For this portion of our Firewall Blowout, we tested a trio of XML firewalls in our Green Bay, Wis., NWC Inc. business applications lab. We liked all three products: Although DataPower's adaptable XS40 XML Security Gateway took our Editor's Choice award based on its strong performance, fine-grained management and ability to integrate into our NWC Inc. infrastructure, the runners-up are worthy of mention. Sarvega XML Guardian Gateway is a strong second thanks to attractive pricing and blazing performance--the device didn't add one millisecond of latency. Reactivity's ultramanageable XML Security Gateway rounds out the pack.
