SSL decryption and Carbonite

Has anyone had the same experience?

as you know, applications use various degrees of SSL.

Some are not implemented to standards or use capabilities in the standards that are not compatible with Palo Alto Networks SSL decryption capability. In addition, SSL decryption cannot be used when servers require client certificates.

• Server requires client certi
