SAN JOSE, Calif., June 22, 2017 — Wheel Systems Inc., the leading vendor of innovative IT security solutions – has today announced a launch of new SSL/TLS decryption appliance, which will now considerably augment the family of Wheel Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor products. Wheel Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor Infinity stands in a class of its own. With a traffic decryption speed of 50 gigabits per second, it offers unparalleled performance multiple times faster than the competition.
SSL/TLS encryption ensures that data is kept private and intact, and it’s no surprise that the use of encrypted connections continues to grow. As a result of the booming popularity of encrypted means of communications, cyber criminals have also begun to focus their attention on breaking these protections and stealing data.
SSL/TLS connections have become the targets of cyber criminals looking to exploit sensitive data. Hackers are able to hide their efforts to steal data through encrypted tunnels. They know that their actions will go unnoticed by security solutions, which can’t themselves decrypt the hacker’s secure communications.
“Most IPS, IDS, DLP, AV or Next-Generation Firewall solutions can analyze only decrypted traffic. Although some do include a decryption feature, this may cause excessive load and delays. Our solution removes this additional burden and allows other appliances to focus on what they were designed to do.” says Patryk Brozek, CEO of Wheel Systems.
The increasing size and complexity of company networks has resulted in continuous growth of data flow volume.
“Looking at the existing market for analyzing SSL/TLS traffic, we’ve come to the conclusion that the most critical metrics for these tools are speed and reliability.” continues Mr. Brozek. “We see how rapidly the amount of data that needs to be analyzed is growing, and as a result we’ve created Wheel Lynx Infinity.”
“Creating the world’s fastest SSL/TLS decryption tool was a huge undertaking. It involved months of work analyzing and testing hardware, identifying an optimal system architecture and lab testing. All so we could present our finished product, which will revolutionize the industry.” says Pawel Jakub Dawidek, CTO of Wheel Systems.
Wheel Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor Infinity is designed to work both inline and out-of-band. It works seamlessly with existing IDS/IPS, DLP and BDS solutions, as well as anti-virus products. A built-in whitelist function ensures compliance with privacy protection regulations. The Lynx Infinity system also includes appropriate tools to intelligently build efficient network security architectures.
Wheel Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor offers:
- Decryption and analysis of SSL/TLS traffic through DLP/IDS/IPS/FW/sandbox systems,
- Offers transparency of action to the user and endpoints,
- Can initiate SSL decryption mid-connection, like with the StartTLS command in the SMTP,
- Does not impact the performance of unencrypted traffic,
- Immediately closes connections when discovering threats or data leaks,
- A single appliance can be integrated with multiple third-party products to create a clustered solution, improving ease-of-use and efficiency.
The appliance will be available for purchase from July 15th, 2017.
