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 Platform 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.
Inspect and Secure HTTPS Encrypted Traffic Easily in the Cloud
With this amount of encrypted HTTPS traffic, there are no amount of network security appliances that can handle the load of performing HTTPS decrypt so that compliance, malware defense, and data loss can be applied to cloud connections. To make things worse, without decryption, reporting visibility vanishes as the content of the connections is not visible for the purposes of reporting.
The iboss Cloud Platform delivers network security as a service, directly in the cloud. This allows organizations to decrypt any volume of HTTPS traffic for network security without worrying about increasing costs or slowing cloud connections due to HTTPS decryption. The iboss Cloud Platform delivers the service through the use of containerization, which allows infinite horizontal scaling. Horizontal scaling allows the iboss Cloud Platform to add more “checkout lanes” as bandwidth and encrypted traffic increase to ensure fast connections from anywhere in the world.
