Securing the Extended Enterprise with Bi-Directional Protocol Handling

Large Enterprises face a constant challenge in balancing technology costs with new business goals. Many enterprises have existing business processes bound up in applications that communicate using ‘legacy’ protocols such as FTP and MQ, which were really designed for behind the firewall operation in a trusted network. Given these constraints what’s the best way for a large Enterprise to extend these applications to external customers and partners without relying on an expensive re-engineering effort or concentrating risk in a single vendor?

One option is to use a security gateway such as the Intel® Expressway Service Gateway to centralize security policy deployment, increase performance, reduce development costs, and simplify the architecture. In this post, Blake Dournaee describes a recent customer use case for a Service Gateway that highlights the value of this class of products.
