How Safe is OpenSSL? Part I

posted in Application Delivery Controllers, SSL VPN by

The passing of the one-year anniversary of the OpenSSL Heartbleed vulnerability – and a recent rash of highly exploitable vulnerabilities with names of lesser cachet – led me to wonder: Just how frequently are OpenSSL vulnerabilities reported, and what are their impacts? While Array has developed our own proprietary SSL stack for production traffic,...

Last week, Array announced the second generation of the AVX10650 virtualized application delivery controller. Why is this important? It gives IaaS providers unprecedented flexibility to support multiple customers while managing just one appliance (or two, for high availability). Or, enterprises can support multiple applications, user types, etc. – again, with just one appliance (or...

A Hybrid Virtual/Dedicated Model for SSL/TLS Offloading

posted in ADC, Application Delivery Controllers, SSL Acceleration, SSL Offloading by

In virtualized environments, SSL/TLS data encryption is commonly used to secure mission-critical and sensitive data as it transits to remote users and shared networks. Virtual application delivery controllers (ADCs) are also frequently deployed to provide SSL offloading from servers (reducing their load and thus improving performance) as well as application acceleration, load balancing across...
