Cyber-criminals know what security experts know: that SSL/TLS encryption is the industry standard for protecting data in transit. Those same cyber-criminals use industry-standard encryption methods themselves, devising clever ways to hide malware inside encrypted traffic to carry out attacks that bypass detection.

In fact, between January and September, the Zscaler cloud blocked an astounding 6.6 billion security threats hidden inside encrypted traffic, which amounts to an average of 733 million blocked per month. This monthly average is an increase of nearly 260 percent over 2019, when the Zscaler cloud was blocking an average of 283 million threats per month in encrypted traffic.

Read this white paper to learn why inspecting encrypted traffic must be a key component of every organization’s security defenses.
