SSL Decryption & Inspection Services

Prevent hackers from accessing your secure data and network.

Safeguard your network from cybercriminals who use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to hide their attacks with SonicWall SSL Inspection.[1] . Rely on full-stack inspection engine technology to scan SSL-encrypted traffic for threats and then quickly send it along to its destination if no threats or vulnerabilities are found.



Secure and simple setup

SonicWall Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Inspection service protects users on the network with minimal configuration and complexity.

Inclusion/exclusion list

For high-traffic deployments, administrators can exclude trusted sources to maximize network performance. Additionally, administrators can target specific traffic for SSL inspection by customizing a list that specifies address, service or user objects or groups.

Client deployment mode

Inspect SSL traffic when the client is on the firewall’s LAN, and accesses content located on the WAN. By enabling client deployment mode, you protect all users on the LAN from dangerous intrusion, viruses, Trojans, and other network attacks that use cryptographic protocols such as SSL.

Server deployment mode

Inspect SSL traffic when remote clients connect over the WAN to access content located on the firewall’s LAN, allowing the administrator to configure pairings of an address object and certificate. By enabling server deployment mode, you protect all users on the WAN — including remote clients — from dangerous attacks that use cryptographic protocols.

Comprehensive support

Support includes intrusion detection and prevention (IDP), malware prevention, application control, content/URL filtering, and preventing malware command and control communication.
