BOSTON, May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Crosscheck Networks, Inc. a leader in services testing, simulation and security, today announced it has joined Red Hat's Independent Software Vendors (ISV) Partner Program. As a Red Hat Ready Partner, Crosscheck Networks, and its wholly owned subsidiary Forum Systems, now support Red Hat's middleware portfolio, JBoss Enterprise Middleware.

The Red Hat ISV Program provides qualified vendors easy access to the tools and resources necessary to develop and test their products on Red Hat technologies. Additionally, through the program's co-marketing and co-branding offerings, Crosscheck Networks will make its flagship solution, the Forum Systems Sentry XML Gateway, available to Red Hat customers worldwide.

Processing more than one billion transactions per day worldwide, Forum Sentry simplifies business communications through secure integration across networks and business boundaries. The FIPS- and DoD-certified Sentry XML Gateway ensures preemptive risk mitigation of business transactions exposed via SOA by enabling the ability to develop and deploy robust and reliable SOAP- and XML-based Web services. Empowering more secure, efficient and seamless information exchange among back-office applications, Web services, and customer and partner portals – the hallmarks of Federated SOA – Forum Sentry affords users more control of their Web interactions.

"Crosscheck Networks' new partnership with Red Hat underscores the demand for, and increasing adoption of, Forum Sentry in the enterprise," said Daniele de Petris, CTO of Quanam Italia, an Advanced Partner of Red Hat. "The integration of Crosscheck Networks' products with the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform offers our IT customers unprecedented flexibility and scalability for maximizing the value of their open source software deployments."

"Crosscheck Networks is experiencing strong growth in the EMEA markets," said Mamoon Yunus, CEO of Crosscheck Networks. "Achieving interoperability with JBoss Enterprise Middleware and Red Hat Ready Partner status adds to that momentum. Additionally, by leveraging systems integrator partners like Quanam Italia, we'll continue to deliver solutions that help enterprises establish Federated SOA, and facilitate safe cloud migrations."

Forum Sentry is an integral component of Crosscheck Networks' comprehensive services "lifecycle" suite. The products can be deployed together or seamlessly integrated with organizations' existing infrastructure. In addition to Forum Sentry, the company's enterprise-class offerings comprise:

  • SOAPSonar – Provides modes for functional, multi-client performance, compliance and security testing of SOAP-, XML- and REST-based services. SOAPSonar offers enterprises the unique ability to test functional and performance characteristics of unlimited-sized Web services attachments via streaming of structured and unstructured data based on industry standards such as MTOM and MIME. And with support for WS-Trust, SAML 2.0 and WS-identity tokens, SOAPSonar ensures a best-practices approach to Federated Identity Management.
  • Forum STS – Allows secure, accelerated and consolidated identity enforcement, controlling privileges without requiring the custom code that can frequently introduce risk.

And through Federated SOA with trusted business units and external trading partners, organizations can successfully navigate the regulatory and compliance barriers related to information security, integrity and privacy, and form a solid foundation for their cloud computing initiatives.
