SANTA MONICA--Digital Evolution, a leading provider of Web Services Security and Management software, today announced the acquisition of Flamenco Networks, a leading provider of specialized network infrastructure to enterprises that are implementing secure, service oriented architectures. Only weeks after announcing a $15 million Series C Round of funding, the acquisition of Flamenco Networks propels Digital Evolution ahead of all other competitors in breadth and maturity of SOA product offerings and customer base.

Flamenco Networks is an Atlanta, Georgia-based company that provides specialized network infrastructure to enterprises that are implementing secure, service oriented architectures based on the SOAP communications protocol. Part of the broader Web Services Management category, Flamenco's technology allows IT network and security operations to enforce enterprise security policies, automate the provisioning of access, enable trading partner self-service and control qualities of service (QOS).

The addition of Flamenco's technology to Digital Evolution's Identity-Based Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Management platform, and its flagship product, the Digital Evolution Service Manager, gives Digital Evolution the broadest, deepest and most complete product offering and firmly establishes Digital Evolution as the leader in SOA security and management fabric software and solutions. The acquisition of Flamenco Networks also brings a sophisticated hosted and managed network service located in an IBM data center allowing Digital Evolution to offer hosted and product versions to its customers.

"We believe that this acquisition puts us in a category well ahead of the competition and is clear evidence of our intent to consolidate our leadership position in the field of SOA Security and Management Software," said Paul Gigg, Digital Evolution President and CEO. "The addition of Flamenco Networks' technology strengthens the Digital Evolution product portfolio and allows us to offer the most comprehensive Web Services security and management solution available for enterprises today."
