A turnkey virtualization approach gives you 100% visibility
Organizations are increasing their reliance on encryption, primarily secure sockets layer (SSL) and transport layer security (TLS), to protect their data in motion. At the same time, cybercriminals are using encrypted traffic to obscure their presence and evade detection.
Very few security devices can keep up with this amount of encrypted traffic, meaning cybercriminals have an open door. To secure their networks, organizations need a solution which can scale traffic inspection in an economical way to close the SSL inspection gap.
Enterprises can’t keep up with decrypting incoming traffic
With the exponential increase in traffic volumes and mix along with over 70% being encrypted, enterprises face ever-expanding vulnerabilities when it comes to cybersecurity because of the SSL Inspection Gap.
The SSL Inspection Gap is the point where an enterprise can’t keep up with decrypting incoming traffic and maintain their network’s performance, so they opt to turn off SSL/TLS decryption on their firewalls and let traffic through unchecked in order to speed up their network.
In fact, throughput drops up to 92% when SSL/TLS inspection is enabled.
A turnkey network security virtualization platform provides 100% SSL/TLS visibility
To achieve complete 100% SSL/TLS visibility while guaranteeing network performance, you need to virtualize your network security. This allows you to spread encryption/decryption functions within your virtual next generation firewalls (NGFW) across several virtual machines (VMs) so that you’re no longer tied to the performance of a single firewall appliance and you can scale out security inspection horizontally.
The turnkey Corsa Network Security Virtualization Platform does just that and solves the SSL Inspection Gap by providing 100% visibility without degrading performance. By tightly integrating virtualization with intelligent orchestration, Corsa Security streamlines deployment, management and operations of virtualized NGFW arrays for large networks.
Setup in minutes and scale SSL inspection with the click of a button
The Corsa Security platform is extremely simple to use. From the network perspective it is deployed as a virtual wire firewall on any high capacity link. Corsa Security provides all the necessary network, server, load balancing and management components in a turnkey package.
You continue to use your preferred security vendors and configure the firewall policy from your existing policy manager, while behind the scenes their virtual functions are running on state-of-the-art hyperconverged infrastructure, specifically optimized for scaling SSL/TLS inspection.
- The Corsa Security platform directs the SSL/TLS traffic to the firewall VM for decryption.
- The traffic is decrypted and then inspected
by the firewall VMs using licensed NGFW
functions such as IPS, AppID, DLP, etc.
- The Corsa Security Orchestrator provisions
policy settings and performs health checks
to monitor VM and system performance.
- The Corsa Security platform maintains
stateful connection tracking for intelligent
traffic steering to and from VMs.
Scale your rapidly changing SSL inspection requirements quickly, easily and affordably
When you scale SSL/TLS inspection using the turnkey Corsa Security platform, you can be sure that you are seeing all the traffic entering your network. The result is complete SSL/TLS visibility with so much more, including:
- Increased agility
- Stronger security
- Lower TCO
- Improved IT operational efficiency
- Future proofing of security
Solving the SSL Inspection Gap is critical for enterprises to gain 100% visibility and prevent cyberattacks. With turnkey network security virtualization you can stay on top of your rapidly changing capacity requirements quickly, easily and affordably.
