Attackers are actively exploiting the SSL blind spot. Through a well-defined encrypted traffic management strategy organisations can gain the visibility required to conduct cyber-security activities, whilst balancing the requirements for employee privacy.
Many of the mechanisms used to keep attackers out of and data within an organisation are blind to what lies within encrypted traffic. This presents a serious risk that is often not adequately addressed and attackers exploit this amongst other techniques to mask their activities. Through the pervasiveness of encryption, organisations should increasingly look to adopting a strategic approach to encrypted traffic management
This webinar will explain the rise of encryption, the challenges it presents and the need to equip the business with a more strategic and ‘transparent’ approach:
- Understanding what you do and don’t control and how to effectively address the different uses of encryption
- Maximising investments in existing security tools such as IPS, web security and analytics platforms
- Protecting against APTs and mass market malware
- The need for privacy and a policy-based approach
