How are you guys handling https (secure) traffic?

Hey guys. We are looking into this product and some other vendors as well. I have a question for those of you who currently use the security gateway. How do you block or inspect secure (https) traffic? Do you guys run another proxy application / server?

Hi Javi,

Using Application Control you can allow, monitor, or block 'HTTPS/SSL/TLS'  traffic passing through the device for particular users, groups or IP's . 

The device can also stop users from browsing to bad sites and url's Symantec can identify by IP. 

What the device currently can't do is scan uploads or downloads transferred via secure sites, we are looking to introduce this in the SWG v5, currently slated for an autumn release.

Thanks,

Kevin
