SSL Certificates

In 7.0, Kaseya released an integrated Application Firewall which monitors all web-based communication going to/from the Windows Server that Kaseya is hosted on.  This provides an added level of security by enabling Kaseya to log and potentially block malicious activity or application security attacks.  It is also strongly recommend that all web-based communication be encrypted using SSL/TLS.

SSL/TLS is the most common security protocol used on the Web.  If you have visited Google or a financial services website, you will notice the “HTTPS” and a lock icon in your browser’s address bar to indicate the communication between your browser and the website is encrypted. 

To enable secure web traffic, the Kaseya Application Firewall needs a SSL Certificate to be imported.  The SSL Certificate and its corresponding private key allow for communication to be encrypted and prove the identity of the server.

For information on how to configure the Kaseya Application Firewall with a SSL Certificate, please read the options below and click on the one applicable to your environment to see detailed instructions:

  1. You already have a SSL certificate in Microsoft IIS that you wish to export and use in the Kaseya Application Firewall.  Click for Detailed Instructions...
  2. You don’t have a SSL certificate and want to purchase one from a Trusted Certificate Authority (i.e. Verisign, Thawte, DigiCert, etc…) to use in the Kaseya Application Firewall.  Click for Detailed Instructions...
  3. You want to create a self-signed SSL certificate to use in the Kaseya Application Firewall.  Click for Detailed Instructions...

 Please Note: If you are running Kaseya R8 - the Kaseya Application Firewall service is called "Kaseya Edge Services", not "Kaseya.ApplicationFirewall" - this is the service name in Version 7
