ClearTunnel Outbound SSL Inspection Goes RTM!

ClearTunnel:  Close the SSL Hole!

Your ISA web filters are powerless to inspect outbound (forward proxy) SSL connections for:

  • Unauthorized browsing
  • Viruses, trojan code, web exploits
  • Prohibited content

All this and more can be going on right now right under your firewall’s nose, and since ISA can’t inspect forward SSL connections, you might not find out until too late!

Get the only solution for ISA Server that empowers ISA to see inside SSL tunnels. With ClearTunnel, ISA can leverage these powerful features:

  • Contents of HTTPS connections are exposed to the web proxy as normal HTTP requests/responses.
  • Apply HTTP filter rules to HTTPS connections.
  • Cache forward proxied HTTPS responses, decreasing your external bandwidth usage.
  • Automatically compatible with most third-party web filters, enabling them to see and secure HTTPS traffic as though it was normal HTTP.

Don’t be fooled by Blue Coat sale reps who misrepresent the ISA Firewall. The ISA Firewall provides a higher level of security and superior performance per dollar that any Blue Coat offering. Obtain more security, better performance and higher reliability at a fraction of the Blue Coat high margin reseller cost by using ISA Firewalls with ClearTunnel SSL inspection.

Instead of paying the high margins to Blue Coat resellers, why not save that money and buy a car or boat for yourself instead of paying for the Blue Coat sales guy’s car and boat? You’ll end up with a superior ISA Firewall solution and the satisfaction that you weren’t tricked by the Blue Coat guys.

We won’t be fooled again!
