CyBlock HTTPs Inspection

Wavecrest Computing announces that SSL Inspection is now available in CyBlock Cloud. The SSL (HTTPS) Inspection feature allows CyBlock Cloud to decrypt, analyze, and fully inspect all HTTPS traffic. In order to defeat security threats facing companies today, the capability of SSL Inspection is becoming critical. With the rise in use of HTTPS and with applications (such as Twitter and Facebook) and search engines enabling SSL by default, most enterprises should expect an average yearly increase of ~20% in SSL traffic. The increased use of SSL can create “blind spots” that can actually reduce security on corporate networks because network security products and other defenses may not be able to monitor SSL traffic effectively or efficiently.

Surveys show 25%-35% of enterprise traffic is SSL-encrypted, and the number can be as high as 70% in specific industries. CyBlock Cloud’s SSL inspection feature enables organizations to gain visibility and control of SSL communications. It provides a critical control point for protection against Web threats, enforcing acceptable use policies and performance. Users can seamlessly enforce usage policies on both unsecured and secure traffic. Users can also choose what traffic to inspect or “tunnel” base on their specific security policies.

SSL traffic is growing into a significant amount of corporate traffic. This creates major blind spots for IT. CyBlock Cloud removes these blind spot, enabling organizations to establish a critical control point for Web protection, policy enforcement and performance of users and Web applications using SSL.
