  1. 1. IBM Software Application integration Data Sheet IBM WebSphere DataPower XE82 Edge Appliance Effectively manage application infrastructure at the edge of your enterprise Highlights ●● ● ● Traffic consolidation, monitoring, manage- ment and acceleration for the delivery of web applications ●● ● ● A proxy gateway for the delivery of web applications ●● ● ● An integrated edge-of-network control proxy for use with IBM® WebSphere® Application Accelerator for Hybrid Networks to connect to external Software as a Service (Saas) and cloud-based applications ●● ● ● An integrated traffic gateway for use with IBM WebSphere Application Accelerator for Public Networks ●● ● ● Support options for application optimization and IBM Tivoli® Access Manager V6.1 are included IT and business leaders agree: The ability to consistently and respon- sively reach customers is critical to business success, and it is important to provide these services consistently regardless of the location of your customers. It is also important to stay competitive, optimize response times, amplify protection against malicious attacks and strengthen secu- rity inside your firewall. In many organizations, an inordinate amount of time and effort are expended to tune each component of the infrastruc- ture for each application or use case. Integration appliances meet these challenges using a flexible, configuration-driven approach to simplify integration and operation. The IBM WebSphere DataPower® XE82 Edge Appliance is purpose- built to help you manage application infrastructure effectively at the edge of your enterprise network. The WebSphere DataPower XE82 Edge Appliance intelligently distributes application traffic to server members or groups, delivering improved customer service and a better web experience—no matter where in the world your customers or colleagues are located. When you consolidate functions and simplify deployment, you reduce costs and keep your best people focused on more-strategic business goals. For business and IT leaders at organizations large and small, the news about application integration is positive: A purpose-built appliance is available that helps make network simplification a reality. Reduce
  2. 2. 2 Rapid return on investment with the WebSphere DataPower XE82 Edge Appliance ●● Take action to achieve robust application security provided in the “demilitarized zone” (DMZ) ●● Simplify deployment of new web services, including XML and Web 2.0 protocols ●● Strengthen security, reliability and performance of public-cloud or Software as a Service (SaaS) applications ●● Simplify network traffic management ●● Optimize network infrastructure with robust, application-aware load balancing ●● Consolidate operational management IT security costs without sacrificing your ability to innovate. With the IBM WebSphere DataPower XE82 Edge Appli- ance, your team can address the increasing number of security incidents that plague today’s environment, blocking unwanted access and malicious attacks at the edge of your network. The robust capabilities of the IBM appliance enables you to better manage insider threats, since you can control who is accessing which applications within your systems. This IBM edge-of-networking appliance also enables you to make the most of cloud computing by providing a more-secure, managed connection to cloud-based application services. The DataPower XE82 Edge Appliance is your enterprise gateway, or “front door,” to the network. This IBM appliance simplifies traffic consolidation, provides content-based routing, IBM Software Application integration Data Sheet application-aware load balancing and dynamic workload management A modular “edge-of-networking” appliance, the DataPower XE82 Edge Appliance combines network and application intelligence for those who seek a simplified and converged solution. The WebSphere DataPower XE82 Edge Appliance processes information at the application protocol layer, not at the network protocol layer. This helps you to address the performance, scalability and security challenges that are associated with the delivery of web applications delivery. Remove the security management from your business applications and consolidate these services; achieve consistent security-policy enforcement and management for your enterprise. This IBM appliance correlates request and response messages and optimizes throughput by buffering or streaming network input and output as appropriate. This is a significant advantage over traditional network security gateways, which inspect only the individual packets on an IP network. Because this IBM appliance processes work at the application layer and not at the packet layer, your team gets higher-level services that include governance, dynamic content caching, verification and AAA security policy enforcement.
