Oblix Named a Leader in the Loosely Coupled SOA Management Report 2005

Completeness of Oblix COREsv, Vision for Integration With Identity Management Drive Selection

CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Oblix, a leading developer of identity-based security solutions, today announced that it was named a Leader in the Loosely Coupled SOA Management 2005 Report. One of only four Leaders, Oblix was selected based on the completeness of its SOA management solution, its coherent strategic vision, and its solid customer base in production.

As the first vendor to anticipate the power of centralizing and combining frameworks for identity and SOA management, Oblix provides an end-to-end platform for building, deploying, and monitoring security and access control policies across all enterprise applications and Web services. Oblix's efforts have been widely lauded by customers, partners and industry pundits; the placement within the Loosely Coupled SOA Management Report is the most recent confirmation of Oblix's vision.

"The SOA management space is being thrust into the spotlight due in part to organizations deploying more and more Web services and having to manage, secure, and maintain them," said Phil Wainewright, co-author of the Loosely Coupled report. "With its acquisition of a number of blue chip customers, Oblix is consolidating a leadership position in SOA and identity management."

The report, the first of its kind to examine SOA management, contains Loosely Coupled's in-depth evaluations of 14 vendors in this space, examining their strategy, product set, strengths and weaknesses. The report also contains case studies of five early adopters and a detailed overview of the market. Vendors have been ranked as Leaders, Challengers, Heavyweight Contenders or Noteworthy. It is available for purchase and download online at http://www.looselycoupled.com/pubs/reports/soa_management_2005.html.

"Oblix is a company with demonstrated vision and an ability to focus its business on what best fits shifting customer needs, such as taking Web services security beyond perimeter-type solutions," said Ken Sims, vice president of marketing and business development, Oblix. "Early on Oblix built a name for itself by delivering a rock solid solution for identity management, and we are bringing the same expertise to SOA management. With Oblix COREsv enabling identity-driven Web services, customers are well equipped to meet regulatory compliance requirements and maintain high levels of visibility and control over their environments."
