Creating an External Web Profile

Create an External Web Profile to configure SSL inspection, and control the user session visibility.
SSL inspection refers to a process in which SSL-encrypted internet communication between a client and a server is intercepted and reviewed. Most internet communications are encrypted using SSL, therefore enabling SSL inspection is crucial for using the Atmos Web Gateway advanced URL filtering solution.
