Most websites utilize https:// encryption to secure traffic to/from their webservers.  This is a blessing and a curse...it's a blessing because the traffic is unreadable in its encrypted form.  It's a curse because, well, the traffic is unreadable in its encrypted form.  How will anyone know to block certain traffic (i.e. malware, etc) if its unreadable?  The answer is...you can't.  In order to inspect this encrypted traffic, you can implement a BIG-IP solution that decrypts the traffic and then sends it to a separate FireEye cluster of servers to inspect and take action on the traffic.  In this Lightboard Lesson video, John explains the solution of using a BIG-IP and FireEye device to inspect traffic and keep your webservers safe.  Enjoy!
