The company also announced today that it will soon release new versions of all Web Services in its portfolio featuring and enforcing security using the WS-Security standard.
"Due to lack of standards two years ago we decided to enforce authentication and authorization across our Web Services using a combination of SOAP Headers and SSL. Now that WS-Security has basically become the de facto standard in securing Web Services and tools such as Visual Studio.NET have added built in support, our customers are asking us to provide this added layer of security" said Mr. Cristian Sturek, the Founder and Principal SOA Architect of XWebServices, Inc.
