Secure Web gateway solutions protect Web-surfing PC/Laptop/Mobile from infection and enforce company policies. A secure Web gateway is a solution that filters unwanted software/malware from user-initiated Web/Internet traffic and enforces corporate and regulatory policy compliance. These gateways must, at a minimum, include URL filtering, malicious-code detection and filtering, and application controls for popular Web-based applications, such as instant messaging (IM) and Skype. Native or integrated data leak prevention is also increasingly included.

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)

Enterprises are implementing the cloud-based SWGs to provide security protection for remote offices that are connected directly to the internet (instead of backhauling the traffic over Multiprotocol Label Switching [MPLS] or VPN connections to data centers that provide perimeter security).


On the edge of the corporate network, firewalls and intrusion detection systems give excellent protection against exterior attacks. But they don’t let you protect your organisation from within, or give you visibility inside the enterprise. As web communications grow exponentially, this becomes more and more of a risk. Malware, spyware and viruses will all be hidden in the huge volume of web-based traffic to and from any organisation. But traditional security measures can’t fully address the threats, and don’t work together.

The challenge with today’s network security in a cloud-first world.

Your users are mobile and connect straight to their cloud apps. They are no longer behind your security stack and exposed. Your data center is empty, so what is your perimeter still protecting?

Your hub-and-spoke network is costly and adds latency. Your users demand a faster connection to their cloud apps. Why continue to backhaul traffic and pay for an architecture that wasn’t designed for the cloud?

Zero-days, botnets, and threats hiding in SSL bypass your internet security. You can’t inspect all your traffic because your security stack has performance limitations. With increasing inspection demands, how can your appliances keep up?
