The Role of Active SSL Decryption In Network Monitoring

SSL technology significantly impacts the way IT departments now monitor their networks. Data that could once be captured and sent to security and monitoring tools for analysis is now completely unreadable by those same tools. Learn how a network packet broker (NPB) that has integrated SSL decryption capabilities can be used to overcome this issue.

The NPB can decrypt the data and then aggregate, filter, and data mask the data as needed before it is sent to monitoring and security tools for analysis. In the case of inline monitoring solutions, once the data has been analyzed, the NPB can re-encrypt the data and send it on down line to its final destination - without impacting tool performance or causing compliance issues.
