High level benefits
Enables secure internet connection
Safeguards sensitive data that is being sent between two systems
Prevents criminals (unwanted third parties) from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details
Ensure that any data transferred is impossible to read
It uses encryption algorithms to scramble data in transit, preventing hackers from reading it as it is sent over the connection
This information could be anything sensitive or personal which can include credit card numbers and other financial information, names and addresses
A disadvantage to TLS is that encrypted connections set up by malicious software, such as connections between malware and a command-and-control-servers, can no longer be inspected due to the encryption.
This hampers detection.
A collateral development is that bona fide encrypted services offered by reputable cloud services are increasingly being misused for mala fide purposes, which impairs the effectiveness of exclusively blocking malicious IP addresses and URL
