"Eliminating Your SSL Blind Spot: Managing and Securing HTTPS Traffic"
Learn how HTTPS filtering extends Internet usage policies to HTTPS traffic and closes a major network security hole.
Web encryption is indispensable for today's businesses, but organizations with an open port 443 (HTTPS tunnel) on their firewall are left with a major security hole wide open in their network. Traditional firewalls and gateway anti-virus solutions are unable to scan encrypted traffic, and therefore can provide no control over what content is sent in and out of organizations' networks via HTTPS.
This white paper discusses how HTTPS filtering (SSL scanning) provides organizations with the means to counter these threats by fully extending their existing Internet usage policies to HTTPS traffic, and thereby proactively closing that last known major network security hole.
