Easily and Selectively Inspect Encrypted SSL Traffic

Make the change from using cumbersome appliances to perform SSL decryption to inspecting encrypted content in the cloud with iboss

As websites and cloud apps move to encrypted HTTPS connections, the need to inspect encrypted content is a critical capability to meet compliance, prevent malware and protect against data loss. Performing decryption with network appliances is expensive and does not scale. The iboss cloud performs this function in the cloud to inspect encrypted traffic at scale and with ease.

Selectively decrypt HTTPS traffic to inspect content for compliance, malware and data loss

Although decrypting SSL/TLS HTTPS traffic is a necessity, the need to do so may need to be selectively controlled. For example, it may be desirable to avoid breaking HTTPS on highly trusted financial sites while decrypting traffic to destinations that host generic files, like Box or Dropbox. The iboss cloud provides a broad array of selective decryption options that allow certain traffic to be decrypted while leaving other traffic untouched.

These granular and selective controls on HTTPS decryption and bypass are critical in ensuring administrators have the tools they need to adequately apply web filtering, compliance, malware defense, botnet detection and data loss protection to users in the organization.

Decrypt traffic based on a variety of criteria including user, group, category and source

iboss cloud - Selective SSL Decryption

HTTPS decryption can be applied to specific users or groups of users on the network based on a user’s Active Directory Group, LDAP Security Group or Organization Unit (OU).

Specific destinations can be decrypted by specifying specific domains. Complete categories of websites can be decrypted or bypassed from decryption. Or, decryption can be applied to a network subnet or bypassed for the subnet altogether.

Leverage the elasticity of the cloud to decrypt traffic at scale

Encrypted SSL/TLS traffic continues to be on the rise. As of the end of 2018, more than 50% of the traffic leaving the Chrome browser was encrypted via HTTPS. Encrypted traffic is a requirement in order to secure sensitive communication between users and the Internet but can pose challenges when attempting to inspect encrypted traffic for compliance, malware and data loss. Although HTTPS decryption and inspection is possible with web gateway appliances, the increasing sizes of SSL/TLS keys are causing dated web gateway appliances to struggle with inspecting encrypted traffic at reasonable speeds. In addition, the increased volume of encrypted traffic leads to the necessity of purchasing more web gateway appliances increasing costs and the burden on IT departments.

With the cloud-based iboss cloud, the ability to break and inspect encrypted traffic at scale, without the need for web gateway appliances means that IT departments can perform HTTPS inspection at scale without the worry of web gateway appliance limitations. As traffic continues to increase, the iboss cloud dynamically expands to meet the demands of increased cloud use and encrypted traffic. This translates to decryption at scale, in the cloud, so that IT departments and Security Administrators can focus on the security policies needed vs. the appliance burden resulting from increased encryption and traffic load.
