…Pretty much all of us, right? Now raise your hand if you are decrypting SSL/TLS outbound.
SSL/TLS has skyrocketed in the past few years and will continue to grow. If you aren’t decrypting SSL/TLS you have to ask yourself, what good is my NGFW, Antivirus, etc if I am completely blind to this traffic? The answer is simple, it isn’t good, in fact it’s terrible. You are bound by the constraints of legacy security, source/destination and ports. It’s like locking a screen door. It will keep the flies out but it won’t stop any real threats.
Certainly all of your legacy security vendors will tell you that they can decrypt SSL/TLS but it comes at a significant cost to you.
So what does that mean to you? Time to refresh all of your gear but this time you need to buy bigger boxes. Just go to the business, request a huge Capex, ask for professional services, training, and new head count. Piece of cake right?
That is the old way of thinking and for many of us, that was our reality for the past decade. The business is changing how we do security and we must align to these objectives:
Fast Response Time
- Higher productivity
- Prioritize business apps
- Empower users to use cloud apps
- Secure all users, on all devices, everywhere
- Consistent policy and protection
- Always up-to-date
- Consolidate point products and simply IT
- Cloud-enabled network
- Rapid deployment
Traditional security doesn’t meet today’s business needs and demands. ask yourself, what level of effort and cost are you willing to accept to do this yourself with legacy security appliances? Is this something that you can do in the next 6, 12, 18, or 24 months?
The best solution is getting an holistic and transparent service from cloud security providers. Maybe it’s time to look at cloud security company that has already done the heavy lifting and proven themselves with over 16 million users.
