Sensitive information such as social security numbers, credit card numbers and sensitive user data are encrypted for protection against various user security and privacy threats. Encryption prevents data leaks, security breaches and identity theft. Despite its obvious benefits, encryption, however, has been used to deliver malware within networks.
Taking a strategic approach to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) / Transport Layer Security (TLS) traffic decryption and inspection is vital to maintain resilient security and network monitoring. Organizations are challenged to integrate SSL/TLS decryption with various packet filtering technologies without impacting performance and scalability.
APCON and Symantec’s joint solutions will ensure security and performance monitoring tools receive decrypted, optimized network traffic from every facet of the network.
