TLS/SSL Decryption

Eliminate network blind spots – your Zero Trust Architecture demands it.



Efficiently Inspect and Monitor Encrypted Traffic

With the volume of encrypted traffic on the rise, including adoption of the latest TLS 1.3 protocol, network security teams need efficient decryption capabilities. Decrypting select TLS/SSL traffic allows inspection by security and monitoring tools while maintaining overall data security. Employing intelligent decryption underpins a Zero Trust architecture by validating encrypted traffic complies with your security policies.

GigaSMART® TLS/SSL Decryption brings deep observability to encrypted traffic. This licensed application enables SecOps, NetOps, and applications teams to:

  • Detect previously concealed threat activity in encrypted traffic
  • Bolster network security against data breaches and threats through encrypted communication safeguards
  • Enhance application and network performance monitoring
  • Gain insights into application and network usage patterns

Streamline and boost the effectiveness of your security and monitoring tools by delegating resource-intensive decryption tasks.


Understanding TLS Decryption: Getting It Right


Leverage Existing Tools
Allow inspection by security and monitoring tools while maintaining overall data and security posture.

Maintain Data Encryption
Enable decrypted data to be re-encrypted before sending it to its intended destination.

Reinforce Zero Trust
Validate encrypted traffic to reinforce Zero Trust architectures and enforce security policies.

Product Details

GigaSMART TLS/SSL Decryption excels in centralizing and offloading TLS/SSL decryption and re-encryption tasks, even accommodating TLS 1.3, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of your security tools and mitigating performance challenges. Integration into your hybrid cloud infrastructure ensures deep observability across architectures, allowing authorized traffic while exposing potential TLS/SSL-encased malware, thereby reinforcing overall network security. GigaSMART TLS/SSL Decryption supports both inline (break and inspect) and passive (out-of-band) modes.

Flexible Deployment Options

Enable TLS/SSL detection on any port or application, with 10 Mb up to 100 Gb interface support. Decrypt once, feed as many tools as required.

Future-Proof Scalability

Protect tool performance and scale as needed. Support easy tool maintenance, updates, and upgrades.

Integration Options

Integrate smoothly with the Venafi TPP™ and Entrust nCipher™ to centralize key management and validation. Address diverse needs by supporting inline or out-of-band decryption. Enable automatic TLS/SSL detection on any port.
