Is it possible to do SSL offload with a ServerIron running with a WSM7?

I am sorry for this question and I know it is related to the old platform but I do have a customer with a ServerIron 450 with a WSM7 and he asked me if it is possible to do SSL offload/acceleration on top of the things he is doing already.

The WSM7 itself is not able to do SSL acceleration BUT there are special SSL only modules (SRVC-SSL-1 and SRVC-SSL-2) which do add SSL to WSM6 or WSM7 setups. These modules are so called SSL Service Modules and they do add SSL to hardware constellations which do not offer SSL offload (like in case you are using a WSM7 and WSM6 and not a WSM6-SSL-1 or WSM6-SSL-2). You can add a SRVC-SSL-1 module or a SRVC-SSL-2 module depending on the performance you need.
