SOLVING THE PROBLEM
Datacenter firewalls protect your hosting infrastructure already at the perimeter. When placing certificates from the secure webservers into the perimeter firewall it enables the firewall to terminate SSL traffic and perform deep screening.
This is non-intrusive as the web-surfing customer session is terminated using the legitimate certificate, and after scanning it’s traffic is forwarded transparently to the web server. Traffic forwarded to web server can be sent unencrypted, saving resources on web server farms.
Enabling SSL traffic inspection for incoming traffic to your server farm provides a higher level of protection. It allows for screening inside the encrypted traffic and search for threats that would otherwise be invisible. The reduced footprint cost by moving decryption to high performance firewalls is an added benefit to reduce costs. Inspecting traffic destined for your secure server farm mitigates risks but can also offload and increase performance.
