Directing policy

Gary Smith over at SOA Network Architect covers the new Vordel Policy Director launch. The Policy Director product allows policies to be directed down to XML Gateways, where they are enforced. The policies managed by Policy Director govern who can use the Services in the SOA, and what performance response times are expected from the services. Without Policy Director, XML Gateways would have to be managed on a "box by box" basis, which does not scale.
