Enterprises deploying Web services can use this combination as a central access policy architecture for business services and Web services applications and enforced for both.
"Web services applications create a new access channel to business services. Firms should secure the Web services channel within a broader security context to achieve a unified and consistent access policy for business services, stronger access control for business services, and better planning for evolving security solutions," said Forrester Research Inc. vice president Randy Heffner in a statement.
Customers will also have a single contact for Web and Web services security issues.
