33 Hot New Security Products Announced At Black Hat 2017
Ixia Active SSL
Ixia boosted the capabilities of its SecureStack offering Tuesday with the addition of Active SSL technology, which allows organizations to see inside encrypted traffic, then re-crypt it to maintain security. The launch responds to the growing threat posed by encryption, as more threats look to hide inside the encrypted network traffic.
"Encryption is a double-edged sword for networks. While it allows for the protection of data from nefarious actors, it also enables the same nefarious actors to hide their activity from monitoring tools and the IT professionals deploying them," said Scott Register, vice president of product management at Ixia, in a statement. "Ixia's Active SSL can be used to decrypt data once, and then allow processing by as many tools as needed, improving speed and latency of security solutions." Ixia said the solution will be available through a high-performance application module.
