Frequently Asked Question:
What is Application Offloading?
Application Offloading provides secure access to both internal and publicly hosted web applications.
Application Offloading can be used in any of the following scenarios:
• In conjunction with the Web Application Firewall subscription service to provide the offloaded web application continuous protection from malicious web attacks. • To function as an SSL offloader and add HTTPS support to the offloaded web application, using the integrated SSL accelerator hardware of the SSL-VPN appliance. • To add strong or stacked authentication to the offloaded web application, including two-factor authentication, One Time Passwords and client certificate authentication. • To control granular access to the offloaded web application using global, group or user based access policies. • To support web applications for remote access not currently supported by HTTP/HTTPS bookmarks. Application Offloading does not require URL rewriting, thereby delivering complete application functionality without compromising throughput.
