Stop Network Attacks Without Decrypting Traffic

The growth of encrypted traffic has rendered many network security solutions ineffective. While organizations can decrypt and inspect some types of encrypted communications, they won’t realistically be able to inspect all traffic. Moreover, they won’t be able to block the traffic they cannot decrypt. As a result, attackers can use encryption to bypass traditional network security products.

Advanced attacks consists of multiple steps; the initial intrusion is just the first step. Attackers usually must perform reconnaissance, lateral movement, and data exfiltration once they are inside the network to escalate privileges and find and steal valuable data. By monitoring protocol-level metadata and learning normal network behavior, the Magna Behavioral Attack Detection platform detects the telltale signs of an attack, even when application traffic is encrypted.
