Free your workers to use online applications without exposure to web-borne malware and viruses. Manage usage, enforce policies, and avoid lost user productivity, or misused bandwidth.

Protection against web-borne viruses

Web-based threats are rising in volume and complexity. From malicious website traffic, to zero-day viruses and under-the-radar malware. Stopping them requires a solution that combines preventative, proactive and reactive technology – The Web Security Gateway. Your devices and company network stay protected, and you also gain a powerful data leak prevention tool.

  • The Web Security Gateway solution is continually updated with the latest malware signatures and suspicious URL listings such as websites known to host spyware and viruses. 
  • Unlimited remote user licences to enforce content and access policies, across mobile and desktop devices outside your corporate network.
  • Giving users the same protection whether on the move or inside your perimeter. 

Filter harmful content with full visibility

The Secure Web Gateway doesn’t only defend against cyber threats. It also gives you a powerful dashboard for viewing and reporting activity. This can be centrally managed, aggregated and customised, for fast, intuitive network protection.

  • Deploy filters for multiple use cases, from improving employee productivity to safeguarding young users from harmful content.  
  • Content policies enable you to control access to 99.7% of commonly visited websites, applications and platforms.  
  • Policy and reporting engine gives you visibility into SSL-encrypted traffic.

Social media control and traffic inspection

Social media platforms and messaging apps are exploitable attack surfaces. Away from corporate firewalls and email protection. However, blocking these platforms isn’t usually the answer. For example, you may want to run marketing campaigns on Facebook, yet also stop employees playing Facebook games during work hours. The Web Security Gateway is built to solve these challenges.

  • Granular control means you can restrict access to very specific areas. 
  • Advanced monitoring and archiving of web application communications ensures you can identify suspicious activity. 
  • Secure the edge of your network and your remote user endpoints.

  • Defining separate access policies for teachers and students.
  • Grant unrestricted web access to compliance officers for investigations.
