Uncover SSL-Encrypted Attacks in Government Networks

A comprehensive security strategy for federal and other government agencies requires in-depth analysis of encrypted traffic to detect and prevent hidden attacks and data leakage. As more Internet traffic is encrypted, increasing numbers of attackers, including state-sponsored actors, are using this technology to hide malware, and botnet-based command and control traffic to exfiltrate data and escalate the likelihood of successful attacks. Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provides a combination of advanced capabilities to prevent undesired applications and malicious content, including the decryption and scrutinization of encrypted communications, along with Hardware Security Module (HSM) support for enhanced performance and security of certificate and key management.
