Gateway Security


Gateway Security - An Effective Approach to Cybersecurity

In today’s culture, there’s every chance that your users are connected to the Internet morning, noon, and night.

As long as your business is in operation, it’s online. While this can be great for enabling cloud working, improving communication, and increasing efficiency, it also leaves you more vulnerable to malicious websites and harmful content.

This is where a secure web gateway comes into its own, providing round-the-clock protection against online security threats by ensuring your company’s IT security policies are strictly enforced and delivering real-time web filtering.

Gateway Security

What is it and Why Does it Matter?

As your entire operation becomes increasingly mobile, your entire network grows more and more decentralised, making it harder than ever to provide adequate security protection.

A Secure Web Gateway (SWG) Gateway security solves this problem by blocking malicious website traffic on all of your company devices, preventing users from accessing harmful content that could compromise your network and lead to security threats.

It also works with your existing internet policies to filter out the kinds of online content that you don’t want your users accessing in work time.

Gateway Security: Key Features and Benefits

A SWG provides real-time monitoring of all web traffic, immediately blocking content that is harmful, malicious, inappropriate, of which simply contravenes your organization’s Internet Usage policies.

An increasingly remote workforce comes with an increase in security vulnerabilities. With a Secure Web Gateway, that’s simply not a problem.

No matter where your users are, no matter what devices they’re using, their Internet usage will be governed by the exact same security policies that would be in force if they were in the office with you.

As a result, you can rest assured that your entire infrastructure is safe, even if people are accessing it from outside of your premises.

Need to restrict Internet access to certain periods of the day or block problematic websites that have somehow flown under the radar?

Not a problem.

Access restrictions can be completely customized and can be time, content, or user-based. So, if a particular user needs access to certain websites that would be off-limits to others (say a social media manager needing to use Facebook when it’s blocked for the rest of your company), that simply isn’t a problem.

Data leak prevention is a useful tool that prohibits your corporate data leaking out of our system. Combined with your SWG, a data leak prevention tool monitors for instances of attempted data leaks, such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) number patterns appealing in emails or Personally Identifiable Information being uploaded to the cloud, and puts a block on it before it’s too late.

In most cases, no it’s not. A traditional firewall provides basic-level protection against malicious content, but only an SWG can restrict suspicious traffic, block harmful websites and enforce your company’s Internet security policies.
