SonicWall DPI-SSL


Do you know how much encrypted traffic is going in and out of your organization each day?


Network Policy Consultant Sandvine Corp forecasts that 70% of global Internet traffic will be encrypted by the end of 2016. 


Hackers are starting to use encrypted connections to sneak viruses and malware into networks.

What it is

DPI-SSL enables the SonicWall to inspect encrypted connections for malicious content, just like it does with un-encrypted traffic today.


See the diagram below for an illustration of how encrypted packets are inspected using DPI-SSL.

How it works

DPI-SSL establishes a trust relationship with each endpoint on the network via a Certificate Authority, which allows it to unencrypt, inspect, re-encrypt and then deliver the requested packet.

With the potential for over half of your network traffic to pass through without being inspected, it is important to spend a little extra time to configure and implement DPI-SSL.
