SonicWall has introduced Deep Packet Inspection for SSL (DPI-SSL) traffic as part of its latest SonicOS release.
SonicWall adds Deep Packet Inspection for SSL traffic in its latest SonicOS 5.6 release. Whenever you upgrade your SonicWall firewall with the latest SonicOS 5.6 OS it will help counter the growing risk from encrypted threats, and from legitimate encrypted applications which may bypass content filtering and leak valuable information or expose networks to attacks from malware.
The OS upgrade includes DPI seamlessly applied to SSL traffic, and can inspect inside all SSL sessions across all ports, independently of the protocol, resulting in both encrypted and decrypted data being scanned, monitored and protected.. It also includes SonicWall’s Re-Assembly Free Deep Packet Inspection (RFDPI) engine.
“Encryption is obviously an essential tool in security. Yet encryption is now being used as a tool to defeat security,” said Patrick Sweeney, vice president, Product Management. “With SonicWALL’s DPI-SSL inspection capabilities, companies can ensure that security tools are working for them, not against them. Companies are put back in control of the data that leaves their network while controlling what web sites users’ access.”
