Securing Legacy Applications and Devices

The security of many networks is hampered by a business requirement to continue supporting legacy applications, devices, or appliances.

Not all applications or appliances provide the ability to have their transactions encrypted. Even those that do often have limited capabilities. Systems that only support SSLv3 or that lack support for PFS (Perfect Forward Secrecy) are common. Any service that does authentication or any other sensitive transaction in the clear is a potential source of disclosure. These services must not be allowed to continue running unencrypted traffic across your network, as they are vulnerable to disclosure, replay, and man-in-the-middle attacks. Our "Augmented Encryption for Insecure Services" system can provide robust end to end 256bit TLS Encryption, as well as identity verification to ensure that your transaction is not being intercepted or altered. As an alternative, secure tunnels using AES or Blowfish encryption are also available.
