Secure SOA And Integrate To Enterprise Identity Management
Network firewalls do not block message level threats. Web application firewalls only protect web applications.

The API Server also performs schema validation and can enforce schema usage policies. See the API Protection page for a full list of protection the Vordel API Server provides out-of-the-box.
