Differentiating features of IBM B2B Integrator
Data and network security
Offers identity management features, including authorization, and optional DMZ based security with multi-factor authentication (IBM Secure Proxy), the ability to secure data at-rest or in-motion transport and PGP encryption.
High availability communications and disaster recovery
B2B Advanced Communications separate customer facing communications from core processing so business documents can continue to be received during an outage while optional High Availability Mailboxing provides real-time file-based synchronization across multiple data centers to enable an active/active approach in disaster recovery situations.
Communications protocol support
An extensive set of communication protocols are supported out-of-box including web services, S/FTP/S client and server, HTTP/S, SMTP, Applicability Statement (AS1-AS4), RosettaNet, WebDAV and Zengin TCP/IP, plus SSL and SSH and others so you never have to say "No" to an on-boarding request.
While B2B Integrator can on-board trading partners, IBM Partner Engagement Manager works in conjunction with B2B Integrator to help centralize on-boarding across RESTapi enabled applications. Self-service on-boarding for partners and line-of-business staff ends reliance on I.T. while a "local" feature allows the storage of sensitive partner data behind your firewall.
