SANTA MONICA, Calif.- January 23, 2006-SOA Software, the leading provider of comprehensive SOA and Web services management, security and governance solutions, today announced its financial results for fiscal year 2005. The company delivered revenues of $29.9 million, showing more than 450 percent growth over 2004.

"We expanded the breadth of our products, added new corporate accounts and are delivering real world solutions to our customers.

This product will extend revenue growth this year with a complete value proposition for SOA customers from distributed enterprise to mainframes. Now, SOA Software has solutions for SOA service management, SOA Registry, SOA XML VPN and SOA Mainframe Web services.
