SSL/TLS encryption is rising as enterprises face more stringent security mandates, need to ensure optimal SEO rankings, deploy more workloads to the cloud and make wider use of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. In fact, over 90 percent of internet traffic around the globe is now encrypted.
Unfortunately, encryption isn’t limited to well-meaning parties. Consider that over 2.8 million cyber-attacks in 2018 were hidden in encrypted traffic. Cybercriminals use encryption to conceal malware, hide command-and-control traffic and cloak the exfiltration of stolen data
Given the amount of encrypted traffic, including with the latest TLS 1.3 cryptographic protocol, the threat vector it now poses and the importance of traffic inspection for a Zero Trust Posture, you need a way to efficiently decrypt SSL traffic, share it with tools and then re-encrypt it.
