How to Gain Visibility and Control of Encrypted SSL Web Sessions
Business-critical web applications comprise the majority of new applications being deployed across distributed enterprises. Many of these applications are hosted by 3rd parties or accessed over public infrastructure. The criticality and confidentiality of Internet-accessible applications has caused organizations to rely on SSL encryption. IT becomes increasingly "blind" to the encrypted SSL traffic. This blind spot raises many security, control and performance questions. Can threats move within these tunnels? Can users subvert enterprise control? Can encrypted applications be accelerated for optimized performance?
