Secure Web Gateway

Secure Web Gateway protects remote workers against malware, malicious websites and apps.

Secure Web Gateway

A Secure Web Gateway (SWG) is hugely important as organisations have continued to evolve their WAN Edge. Applications are rapidly migrating to the cloud, the workforce is increasingly remote and the attack surface at remote sites and branch locations gets wider.

Security risks are especially high for web-based traffic, and as attack techniques become more advanced, organisations need an integrated approach to secure against external and internal risks.

Why you need a Secure Web Gateway solution

An SWG solution offers multiple layers of defence for web traffic, through content filtering, data loss prevention, malware protection and more. As many companies have shifted to remote working, users are accessing remotely, from home, office, at coffee shops, on multiple devices and attackers are becoming more sophisticated, organisations need to offer an extra layer of protection.

An SWG solution includes URL filtering, application control, deep HTTPS/SSL inspection, data loss prevention and remote browser isolation capabilities.

Secure Web Gateway or a Firewall?

SWGs prevent malware infections, block access to malicious websites and applications, and enforce company compliance policies, especially at branch offices and for remote workers. SWGs are like firewalls in that they both can discern malicious Internet traffic from benign traffic, and both provide advanced network security protections.

Whilst firewalls function at the packet level, SWGs, identify and protect against advanced attacks by inspecting web traffic at the application level - without compromising on the overall web experience.

However, it isn’t an either or option, you need both. A fully integrated enterprise security strategy requires both SWGs and next-generation firewalls (NGFW).

Secure Web Gateway or a Proxy?

Traditional web proxy tools manage how traffic passes between an organization’s internal endpoints and the Internet. Over time, organisations have embraced Secure Web Gateway solutions to offer a more advanced set of capabilities beyond what traditional proxy alone can offer.
