Reactivity Locks Down RSS Feeds

RSS is the darling of bloggers and news sites, but Reactivity's secure XML gateway products could help kickstart a wider enterprise adoption of the format as well.

That may change in coming months as companies begin building security and content signing features into RSS, opening the door to enterprise adoption of RSS as a medium for everything from e-commerce transactions to supply chain management, said Andrew Nash, chief technology officer of Reactivity, which makes secure XML infrastructure products.

Last week, Reactivity announced features for its secure XML gateway products that can secure, encrypt and authenticate access to RSS feeds, as well as transform RSS data to and from other XML formats.
