Bloxx Announces Secure Sockets Layer Intercept (SSLI) Software Development Kit For Security Solution Providers

Aimed at security application developers seeking to add SSL traffic intercept capabilities to their Web content filtering, firewall, or UTM solutions.

Boston, Mass., (August 27, 2013) – With an increasing level of Web traffic rapidly moving to the encrypted Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) protocol, Bloxx is now offering its Secure Sockets Layer Intercept (SSLI) Software Development Kit (SDK) for security solution providers and security application developers seeking to add SSL traffic intercept capabilities to their Web content filtering, firewall or Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions.

Using the Bloxx SSLI SDK, developers can quickly and easily create a robust SSL content proxy application that intercepts and decrypts SSL traffic, so they can offer new solutions to customers that effectively address the increased content and security risks from HTTPS Web traffic.

"Intercepting SSL is complex and development time can be extensive. The Bloxx SSLI SDK, which has already been proven in our own products, will minimize development complexity and costs and reduce the time to market for security vendors," says Charles Sweeney, CEO of Bloxx a leader in Web content filtering and email security.

One of the typical applications solution providers can create using the Bloxx SSLI SDK is a SSL content proxy for integration with a Web content filter or Secure Web Gateway. Bloxx SSLI intercepts and decrypts the SSL traffic which can then be passed to content analysis or malware detection engines for inspection. This enables solutions that allow managed access to Web sites that use SSL by examining the content on the page while also helping to protect an organization's network and end point devices from HTTPS security threats.

Availability and Pricing

Available now, the price for the Bloxx SSLI Software Development Kit is based on individual licensing terms.
