Vordel, a dealer in safe connectivity for SOA and cloud services, announced its Cisco (News - Alert) ACE Gateway Replacement program in response to end-of-life dates. The company also charted a new centralized policy management and Web usage reporting that offers new capabilities to Cisco customers.
It claimed that certain customers were affected because of reports regarding the end-of life dates for the Cisco ACE XML Gateway (News - Alert) and this program is said to have been formulated to address the needs of the impacted users. Cisco customers using this product now have to replace it with another XML Gateway, and Vordel has stepped into the breach with its Cisco ACE Gateway replacement program.
Vordel claimed that it is working with existing Cisco customers to mitigate risk, ensure compliance and run their enterprise applications on a fully supported scalable platform that not only meets current business needs, but also future growth plans.
The company explained that it recognizes that this End of Life has created an additional capital expense for Cisco ACE XML Gateway customers. This is why the company is running a special limited offer to replace existing appliances for the Vordel Gateway. Vordel has already migrated Cisco users and so understands the challenges that they will have in migration from Cisco to a new platform. Vordel’s program offers Cisco customers the opportunity to get up and running quickly with Vordel’s XML Gateway. Customers opting for this program are supposed to receive increased performance, strengthened security and enhanced interoperability in SOA and cloud deployments.
According to the company, the Vordel Gateway is a purpose-built Gateway available in multiple form factors, designed to accelerate, secure and integrate all types of traffic on the SOA network. Artifacts used by the Cisco ACE Gateway including WSDLs, Schemas and certificates among others can be easily imported into the Vordel Gateway.
Officials with Vordel exclaimed that by choosing Vordel, Cisco customers will be able to mitigate risk, ensure compliance and drive the efficient running of enterprise applications on a fully supported scalable platform that meets current business needs and facilitates future growth plans.
