SSL and other forms of encryption are important for the security of individual users, but traditional network security devices don't decrypt�encrypted�traffic. Critically, this loophole�allows programs, particularly ransomware�and�other forms of malware,�to bypass security controls and�communicate with C&C (Command and Control) servers via encrypted traffic.�As the amount of legitimate and in some cases, malicious, traffic increases, it is critical that the traffic be inspected. According to Gartner (News - Alert), by 2017, over half of the attacks against corporate networks will use encryption to bypass security controls [1].

Now, with SOOSAN INT's acquisition of Ara's SSL-PRISM including the related patents and software, and the�release of the new�ePrism�SSL VA,�encrypted�traffic can be inspected by�network security devices.

Already�WOONGJIN Group, Commercial Bank of Dubai, and 27 other customers globally have installed�ePrism�SSL VA in their networks demonstrating�ePrism�SSL VA's performance and stability.�ePrism�SSL gives�full SSL traffic visibility�to�malware blocking solutions and web filtering solutions. For these solutions,�ePrism�has�an exclusive Block Message Pass Through feature that allows�the�sending�of�block messages directly to the user without the�need for�external systems in order to allow such solutions�to fully use their original features.

Additional features include automatic certificate distribution, blocking of�browser�anonymization�tools and protocols,�and inline 5-tuple�maintenance. The current�line-up�includes 7 models supporting traffic from 100M to 10G.

This acquisition demonstrates SOOSAN's commitment to the next generation�encryption-enabled devices. To prepare for this market, SOOSAN has a complete line of SSL-decryption�solutions. SOOSAN is also advancing�its�Secure Web Gateway (News - Alert) series, eWalker, with over 1000 active corporate accounts.
