The Role of Active SSL Decryption In Network Monitoring

SSL technology significantly impacts the way IT departments monitor their networks. Data that was once 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 help to overcome this issue.

The NPB decrypts the data and then aggregates, filters, and masks the data as needed before sending it to monitoring and security tools for analysis. In the case of inline monitoring solutions, once the data is analyzed, the NPB re-encrypts the data and sends it down line to its final destination — without impacting tool performance or causing compliance issues.
