Syncsort Zen EE Security

Recycle SNA investments with secure, encrypted IP technology


Reduce costs and increase security

Protect your EE traffic and ensure the integrity of business-critical datastreams.

Syncsort Zen EE Security protects business-critical data by providing optimal levels of security that IBM’s Enterprise Extender (EE) architecture alone cannot offer.

Secure EE traffic without compromising data integrity

SSL Encryption and Authentication for EE

Secure EE traffic

IBM’s EE architecture has become a strategic choice for companies wishing to preserve their investment in legacy application code. It uses the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) instead of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) that Internet Protocol (IP), which imposes certain limitations. Syncsort Zen EE Security compensates for these limitations by ensuring that the data is fully encrypted and authenticated for any IP network.

Syncsort Zen EE Security applies the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to the SNA payload. In addition, it provides a simple, low-cost solution to the EE ‘Multiple Stack’ restriction. It routes EE traffic between IP stacks, so it can be deployed quickly without the need to modify existing IP stack configurations.

Available for all platforms where EE is available
