Security Gateway Appliances

Fact: 90% of all global financial companies use IBM DataPower

What is a “Security Gateway Appliance”?

IBM WebSphere DataPower.  It is the most powerful, bulletproof data-security and integration gateway appliance ever created. It is a SOA appliance (Software Oriented Architecture) and is completely pre configured and ready for mounting straight out-of-the-box. IBM DataPower is an XML appliance that will speed your web service deployments while also extending your SOA build and infrastructure.

Why IBM DataPower?

No branch of computing business has ramped as aggressively as mobile, and within the span of a few years, digital transformation has matured. Today, nearly 90% of developers are currently extending enterprise apps to mobile, or plan to in the near future. (Source: Evans Data).

At the same time, fears about mobile security and cloud integration do persist. Line-of-business managers must interface with mobile customers and provide arms-length customer service. Backend core IT must protect PII/PHI and satisfy HIPAA requirements. There needs to be a gateway and IBM DataPower is one of the most secure, well developed options on the market.

DataPower is a SECURITY and INTEGRATION appliance, purpose-built to provide a broad range of application security, integration, routing, B2B integration, and governance capabilities for all types of web, mobile, API and cloud traffic. DataPower helps organizations achieve rapid time to value with a high-performance solution that requires no coding, simplifies integration, and supports a wide array of web, mobile, cloud, B2B, and API management enablements.

Proven Success

Medical Mutual of Ohio (MMO) wanted to take on more trading partners and more easily align with government protocols, but was without the proper robust and secure infrastructure needed to support the company’s operations. “We needed to set up trading partner software and a B2B infrastructure so we could move the data inside and outside the company,” says Eleanor Danser, EDI Manager, Medical Mutual of Ohio. “TxMQ possessed the expertise we needed to support what we were trying to do. They helped us with the design of the infrastructure and the layout of the project.”

TxMQ led the project with a DataPower project manager, a DataPower expert, an IBM TX translator expert, and an IBM Message Broker expert. The result: MMO can now add trading partners within days, not weeks. The company now uses real-time, rather than batch processing. And MMO has been able to significantly reduce transaction fees for claims data by going direct with clearinghouses or other providers. According to Danser, Medical Mutual sees an annual savings of $250,000 to $500,000 in transactional fees.

So you have SharePoint. You acquired it through a package you purchased with other Microsoft products, or you heard about it from someone and decided to stand it up and see what it can do. Either way you spent some time, resources and much-needed network capacity to put this in place. Now what?
