DataPower is used on the edge as a security device. It is used across the organisation and managed by the integration competency. DataPower is used to securely allow the sharing of data with external parties including cloud systems.
  • The most obvious thing that DataPower does exceptionally well is security. All the built-in supported security capabilities allow us to isolate most security tasks to DataPower and as a result "protect" down steam services/systems to have to deal with security.
  • DataPower is very good at protocol conversion and as it is usually used on the edge allows you to narrow down the protocols used between the companies public and private networks.
  • The appliance concept makes maintenance, recovery and, management so much simpler.
  • The fact that once an appliance reaches end-of-life it becomes a doorstop. A company made a big investment and knowing that in 5 to 9 years you will be left with nothing makes the deal not so appealing.
On the edge this appliance is one of the best, if it's not the best. When it comes to complex any-to-any transformations and/or orchestrations there are much better tools for the job.
