Applications Delivery Platform (ADP)
If you host a web application, you will often experience attacks via malformed SSL requests.
Attackers using SSL, tunnel their HTTP attacks to the server. Inspecting SSL encryption packets is resource-intensive, and traffic during an attack can vary widely.
Therefore, if you have a web-based business, you may offload SSL traffic to the ADP and have it inspected for signs of attacks or violations of policy.
After examination, the ADP will simply re-encrypt the traffic and loop back to the origin.Back to Glossary
