Digital Evolution, a provider of SOA and Web services management and security software, has announced the release of the industry's first business-to-business Web services security solution for .NET Web services. Digital Evolution's XML VPN version 4.2 is now shipping and is in production at several large retail and financial service organizations. The XML VPN is designed to secure any XML Web service and provides specific extensions for discovery and automated provisioning of .NET services, making Web services communication and consumption between partners easy and secure.

"Companies are increasingly using Microsoft .NET-based Web services for business-to-business interactions," said Ron Schmelzer, senior analyst with ZapThink, LLC. "Tapping into this rapid growth, Digital Evolution's XML VPN for .NET will significantly add to the capabilities of the .NET platform by helping organizations manage the provisioning and security of partner communications."

Digital Evolution's XML VPN should allow companies to drive their partners to consume Web services securely and easily. The powerful provisioning technologies built into the XML VPN automatically create virtual service tunnels between partners, allowing applications to consume partner services securely without worrying about the complexity and cost of building security technologies into the application. Digital Evolution's strong experience with all types of SOA and Web services, including J2EE, .NET and back-office application services (mainframe, Oracle, SAP and others), applied to the XML VPN for .NET solutions ensures complete interoperability between .NET and other Web services.

"Increasing numbers of organizations are building new applications using .NET, and are exposing .NET Web services to their partners," said Paul Gigg, CEO of Digital Evolution. "XML VPN for .NET helps organizations securely expose their services, and more importantly, to drive partner adoption of these services to speed time-to-value."
