Over 90% of traffic on most networks is encrypted and it passes through the average firewall completely unfiltered. This is not due to a lack of desire to inspect it. Rather, it’s because most firewalls simply aren’t up to the task.
The rapid increase in encrypted network traffic coupled with the inability of most nextgen firewalls to inspect this traffic has created a perfect storm in network security.
Unsurprisingly, hackers are catching on to this enormous blind spot in organizational security. They are starting to take advantage of this weakness to get threats onto networks and keep them there.
Unfortunately, the limitations in TLS inspection solutions in most firewalls on the market today force organizations to adopt a very unbalanced approach: security and compliance needs are sacrificed in the struggle to provide essential performance and interoperability.
This Whitepaper Covers:
- Has Encryption Rendered Your Firewall Irrelevant?
- Five TLS Inspection Capabilities you Need in Your Next Firewall
- Threats Hiding in Encrypted Traffic
- Five Things to Look for in Your Next Firewall
TLS inspection is complex and resource-intensive and with over 90% of
network traffic now encrypted, few firewalls are up to the task of inspecting it. Sophos Firewall’s all-new Xstream architecture and XGS Series appliances offer the best TLS inspection solution available in a Firewall - enabling you to eliminate your TLS encryption blind spot without impacting performance.
Read this whitepaper to learn about how encryption has made most next-gen firewalls irrelevant, the challenges with TSL inspection, and the five SSL inspection capabilities you need to close this security gap.
