Oracle Enterprise Gateway


Oracle Enterprise Gateway is a purpose-built gateway product offering from Oracle, designed to simplify and secure SOA deployments on-premise, across domain boundaries or in the cloud. Oracle Enterprise Gateway secures, accelerates, integrates and routes XML and other types of data in a simple, easy-to-use manner to help significantly lower integration costs, lower costs of ownership and reduce deployment risks associated with SOA and Cloud infrastructures.

Oracle Enterprise Gateway helps streamline regulatory compliance through authentication, authorization and audit capabilities to dramatically simplify IT administration complexities. Oracle Enterprise Gateway also offers rich integration with various identity and access management platforms enabling enterprises to benefit from dependable security and streamlined policy compliance.

End-to-end SOA Security

DMZ-class security
Oracle Enterprise Gateway provides DMZ-class security and a comprehensive threat defense system at the service perimeter to SOA and Cloud environments, thus providing critical protection needed between un-trusted and trusted zones.

Accelerated XML processing
Oracle Enterprise Gateway provides accelerated XML processing allowing SOA and cloud applications to offload resource intensive XML based operations, resulting in significant performance gain by applications.

Certified on Oracle Fusion Middleware And Third-party Environments
Oracle Enterprise Gateway is fully integrated and certified with Oracle Fusion Middleware and offers out-of-the-box integrations with Oracle SOA Suite, Oracle SOA Governance Solution, Oracle Identity Management and Oracle Enterprise Manager.

SOA & Cloud Ready
Oracle Enterprise Gateway can be deployed in the cloud and can also mediate traffic in different data formats such as SOAP, REST, XML etc., thus simplifying SOA infrastructures on-premise or in the cloud. OEG also manages connections to the enterprise, partners and 3rd party cloud services.

Oracle Enterprise Gateway Architecture and Components

Oracle Enterprise Gateway is available as a single executable for the Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Oracle Solaris platforms.



As mentioned previously, in a typical deployment scenario Oracle Enterprise Gateway components are deployed in the DMZ. The connection between clients and Oracle Enterprise Gateway is protected by a perimeter firewall, and the connection between Oracle Enterprise Gateway and target web services is protected by a Network Address Translation (NAT) firewall.
