Odyssey Snorkel-BX is a versatile transaction security server that enables secure communication and trust between business applications.

BtoB applications form the backbone of e-commerce and are often the target for hackers. Securing business applications from hackers is often complicated due to requiring painful integration and constant maintenance, not to mention a dedicated team with esoteric PKI knowledge.

The complexity of securing BtoB applications stems from the fact that the transacting entities are often built on diverse platforms, have differing feature sets, and possess varying levels of security. To keep up with changes in business needs, technology, and threat environment, the applications also need constant changes and upgrades which can further complicate the task of securing business applications.

Snorkel-BX is a scalable, standards compliant transaction security server that non-invasively enables PKI functionality for BtoB applications.

In a typical deployment scenario, the business application servers are front-ended by Snorkel-BX which serves as a security gateway. Each of the Snorkel-BX servers involved in a BtoB transaction can act as both server and client depending on how a transaction is initiated. By enabling two-factor authentication, channel security, non-repudiation, and integrity to the transactions, Snorkel brings uniform security across transacting business applications.

Snorkel-BX follows the zero-touch model that enables the server to be deployed without disturbing the web application. The plug-configure-play deployment has many advantages over security integration.

Snorkel-BX can be used to protect even black box applications where the source code or internal architecture is inaccessible.

The solution works across a wide range of business applications regardless of application platform and vendor. 

No re-engineering of business applications is necessary

No need for integrating SSL, Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) or other proprietary encryption systems with the application servers.

Future changes to the application functionality or security can be made easily and cost-effectively.
