Where to place the SSL Encryption: IIS or Application (SAS) level?

If you had to pick a place for your SSL encryption to go, what would be the best place to place it and why? At the IIS level.....or at the application level?

We use IIS in conjunction with SAS to serve web pages to our external customers in our current environment. We currently are using SSL encryption via IIS, but are wondering if this is the best configuration or if moving forward it would be better to encrypt the web traffic at the SAS Level.

Let me know if you need any additional info. Thank you!
