WSO2 Debuts Three New Public Cloud Offerings for Managing Integration, Identities, and Mobile Devices

Mountain View, CA, Feb. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Digital businesses and enterprises engaging in digital transformation are harnessing the power of the cloud to quickly get to market, easily extend functionality, and ensure high availability and performance. To support their requirements, WSO2 today debuted three new public cloud offerings based on the WSO2 open source software used by organizations worldwide: WSO2 Integration Cloud, WSO2 Identity Cloud, and WSO2 Device Cloud. WSO2 also rolled out enhancements to WSO2 API Cloud, which first launched in 2015. The announcements were made in conjunction with WSO2Con USA 2017, which runs February 20-22, 2017 in San Francisco.

“We’ve placed a priority on democratizing access to our enterprise-class software by making it available as public cloud solutions that organizations of any size can readily use,” said Dmitry Sotnikov, vice president of cloud at WSO2. “Already our WSO2 API Cloud has seen tremendous success with many government and commercial customers around the globe that have made it their platform of choice for hosting their API programs. Now we are extending our commitment with the introduction of WSO2 Integration Cloud, WSO2 Identity Cloud, and WSO2 Device Cloud. Together, these cloud solutions will empower enterprises with the agility to support their digital business initiatives and rapidly adapt to evolving market conditions.”

WSO2 Integration Cloud
WSO2 Integration Cloud brings together comprehensive functionality from the WSO2 Integration Platform, which manages up to billions of transactions per day at customer sites. With WSO2 Integration Cloud, users can easily provision enterprise service bus (ESB) projects, expose data as services, and host their API backends using a variety of technologies.

WSO2 Integration Cloud supports leading open and proprietary integration standards, as well as all integration patterns, enabling interoperability across heterogeneous systems and business applications. As a result, organizations can connect customers, partners and employees across a range of apps running on enterprise systems, the cloud, web, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Additionally, it can be used to integrate data stores, create composite data views, host data services, allow easy deployment of business processes and models, and create microservices in Java.

Key features of WSO2 Integration Cloud include:

  • Hosting cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-on-premises integration projects.
  • Proxy services with complex orchestrations.
  • Ability to link a VPN cloud environment to on-premises networks.
  • Ability to host API backends developed using a range of popular technologies, including Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS), Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS), Java, WSO2 Microservices Framework for Java (MSF4J), and PHP.
  • MySQL databases.
  • Ability to hide the services from the Internet and limit their visibility to your other services and API gateway.
  • Service monitoring and scaling.

WSO2 Identity Cloud
WSO2 Identity Cloud features the functionality of WSO2 Identity Server identity and access management (IAM) software, which manages billions of user identities at customer sites. It enables enterprise architects and developers to improve the user’s experience by reducing identity provisioning time, guaranteeing secure online interactions, and delivering a reduced single sign-on (SSO) environment. It also decreases the burden of identity management and entitlement management by including role-based access control, attribute-based access control, fine-grain policy-based access control, and SSO bridging.

In its initial release, WSO2 Identity Cloud provides extensible support for easily configuring SSO and poular software as a service (SaaS) applications. Other key components of WSO2 Identity Cloud include:

  • A small, efficient agent to connect an enterprise’s on-premises directory based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directly to the cloud, so employees can log in to the user portal and consume the applications.
  • Ability to add SSO to any cloud or SaaS application using industry standards, such as including the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), OpenID Connect (OIDC), and WS-Federation.
  • Preconfigured templates for popular SaaS applications, including Amazon Web Services, Concur, GoToMeeting, Microsoft Office 365, NetSuite, Salesforce, and Zuora.
  • Brandable application catalog page that lets users discover applications and access them using SSO.

WSO2 Device Cloud
WSO2 Device Cloud incorporates functionality from WSO2 IoT Server, the comprehensive software that provides all the features needed to start building an enterprise-grade solution—based on IoT, mobile or both—so organizations can focus on adding business value while speeding time to market. The initial version of WSO2 Device Cloud provides out-of-the-box enterprise mobility management.

Featuring highly extensible device management capabilities, future releases of WSO2 Device Cloud will:


  • Expose devices as APIs to support integration and application development.
  • Ensure secure device and app access through identity management and authorization.
  • Simplify app management for IT teams and end-users.
  • Tap insights from devices via analytics and visualizations, including analysis of data points, such as speed, proximity and geo-fencing.

New in WSO2 API Cloud
Since 2015, WSO2 API Cloud has been democratizing API management by providing a public cloud version of the award-winning WSO2 API Manager, which has been implemented by Global 1000 companies and governments around the world. It offers an API Store that lets IT organizations set up their own consumer-like store where developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs. Meanwhile, it provides API publishers with complete API lifecycle governance—from creating to publishing, deprecating and retiring APIs—as well as analytics and metrics to support decision-making and enforce service-level agreement (SLA) policies. By using WSO2 API Cloud to expose business capabilities as managed APIs, organizations can gain greater agility in developing their own digital products, as well as provide off-the-shelf potential for advertising and selling business APIs.

The new release of WSO2 API Cloud now offers:

  • Global API Gateways that allow enterprises to host their APIs in 12 different data centers across North and South America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
  • API Monetization that enables enterprises to easily create pricing plans for their APIs and start selling them with the help of a pre-integrated Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant billing system.
