About Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

SSL is the standard technology used to secure an internet connection and safeguard sensitive data being sent between two systems which can be a client and a server or two servers. It does so by encrypting data in transit, ensuring that the data transferred is impossible to read without the proper decryption key.

The Atmos Web Gateway can be configured to allow SSL inspection and visibility into users' sessions. These settings are configured in the Client Security Profile.

SSL Inspection

SSL inspection refers to a process in which SSL-encrypted internet communication between a client and a server is intercepted and inspected. Most internet communications are encrypted using SSL, therefore enabling SSL inspection is crucial for using the Atmos Web Gateway advanced URL filtering and Security solutions.
