Next Generation Secure Web Gateways

Cloud Security

On-Premises Protection

Secure web gateways (SWGs) use URL filtering, advanced threat defense, legacy malware protection and application control technologies to defend users from internet-borne threats, and to help enterprises enforce internet policy compliance. SWGs are implemented as on-premises appliances (hardware and virtual) or cloud-based services, or in hybrid mode (combined on-premises appliances and cloud-based services). Cloud-based SWG solutions are the fastest growing implementation due to their use case in protecting mobile users so that their web traffic flows through the SWG cloud service when the mobile users are off-network.
