This is based on the security best practice webinar that I attend with the recommendation below:

Re: Configuring SSL decryptor between the Workstation and MWG ?

Hi M,

Out of the box, MWG ships with SSL Inspection rules (disabled by default).

The default rules takes care of everything you mentioned above. MWG can inspect the certificate, the issuing CA, common name mismatches, etc..

In our master list of best practices (), there is a number of articles regarding HTTPS considerations.

My colleagues Steve and Darin, did a techtalk about SSL scanner   it's an older video but still relevant.

Best Regards,
