What is Malware?

March 2, 2022


Malware is harmful software or firmware that infects computers, servers and networks. Once infected, the malware takes control of network devices with the purpose of data exfiltration, from full intellectual property theft to keystroke logging or even taking control of a system’s functionality, like that of a web camera.

Effective malware protection requires full visibility into your network’s encrypted traffic, so attacks can be stopped at the network edge. A10 Networks Thunder® SSL Insight (SSLi®) enables TLS decryption/SSL decryption and SSL inspection to detect malware and other exploits hidden in encryption network traffic.
