The process of offloading SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption and decryption duties from a server and employing a specially designed hardware device to complete the task in a more expedited, efficient manner. Transferring this processing load to a dedicated accelerator is an effective way to increase network performance.
For organizations communicating business-sensitive information over the web, SSL encryption/decryption is a common routine. With a Secure Sockets Layer acceleration solution, this process can be optimized, relieving servers from the burden of interpreting coded data and instead relying on a device that was made to perform that exact task. This improves server response times, frees up server resources that were previously occupied and reduces stress on overall network bandwidth.
