With growing reliance on cloud-based infrastructure and applications such as AWS and Office 365, it comes as no surprise the use of encrypted traffic is growing year on year.

Whilst the use of encryption such as SSL and TLS provides security for application traffic, most security layers (IPS, Sandbox, AV etc) are not able to see the malware cyber-criminals place inside encrypted traffic.

This means your security layers could be unwittingly waving-through malware in to your network right now.

Unlocking the SSL/TLS traffic used to transport applications gives existing security layers the ability to inspect the traffic for malware hidden within.

We have already provided many customers with the ability to do this, and to keep up with the continued growth of application use, we can now also unlock your application traffic at the Network Visibility layer.

  • For companies already able to decrypt, this new approach adds further resiliency to the ability to do so, whilst providing the means to ease the load placed on their existing decryption layer.

  • For companies yet to adopt decryption, this provides an easy and convenient way to do so, at the same time as improving the resiliency of the existing security measures in place.

 

Don’t worry, we know for various regulatory reasons you might not want visibility of certain information, such as credit card numbers or Personally Identifiable Information (PII), so we can set appropriate rules to ensure you only unlock the parts of the traffic you really need for malware filtering.
