Solution Brief: Accelerating SSL Applications Across the WAN
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the industry-standard protocol for establishing a secure communications link when transmitting information over untrusted networks. SSL works with any TCP/IP application and automatically establishes an encrypted “tunnel” between the client and server. This is necessary to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of data. However, this security and privacy complicates attempts to prioritize, optimize, or accelerate SSL traffic – especially traffic destined for outside of the organization. Read this solution brief to learn about a strategy for optimizing SSL application performance across the WAN and beyond.
