Consumers and businesses rely on encryption to securely exchange private information over the internet as well as comply with regulations. However, with nearly 95% of web traffic now encrypted, if it’s not inspected, encrypted traffic leaves organizations blind to the security risks that may be hiding inside.

Don’t let attackers exploit this lack of inspection and visibility to deliver malware to your organization.

Using policy-driven decryption in Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls, you can allow certain types of traffic to be decrypted while leaving others alone – all without impacting performance.

Read the white paper, “Decryption: Why, Where, and How,” to learn about:

• The various options available to decrypt traffic on your network
• How to compare the TLS decryption capabilities of different NGFWs
• Best practices for effectively enabling TLS decryption

You’ll find out how decryption can provide you with necessary visibility into all traffic and protect you from adversaries hiding threats in encrypted tunnels.
