SSL Offloading

Secure socket layer (SSL) certificates provide authentication between a server and a client computer in a Web application. Companies or businesses with a dedicated SSL certificate must host that certificate on a Web server. Heavy use of the certificate can put a strain on the machine and slow down the application.

SSL offloading takes all the processing of SSL encryption and decryption off the main Web server and moves it to a separate device designed specifically for the task. This allows the performance of the main Web server to increase and it handles the SSL certificate efficiently.
