SWG provides seamless, unified protection — regardless of user location or the devices being used. Utilizing this technology ensures you maintain a robust defense mechanism, even for remote and distributed teams
Extend data integrity to every team member
Cybersecurity shouldn’t stop at your data center.
SWG enables you to overcome evolving threats that attempt to exploit a business environment where employees frequently operate outside the confines of corporate networks and data centers.
Go beyond corporate policies for shadow IT defense
Setting policies against employees introducing malware is good; strong shadow IT prevention is better.
Ensure your teams don’t accidentally open the door to threats by employing an SWG that provides visibility into all web apps and enables you to apply necessary security measures and policies.
Remain in front of emerging threats
Cybercriminals are like sharks — constantly in motion.
We ensure you remain ahead of new techniques aimed at disrupting your business. Avoid advanced zero-day attacks using sandboxing technology, a proactive strategy that ensures threats are identified and neutralized before they bite.
Enjoy holistic security
It’s a reality that cybersecurity is never a ‘set and forget’ undertaking. The threats keep shifting, and your attack surface keeps growing.
We keep our eyes on it all. From safe internet browsing to enforcing corporate acceptable-use policies, and from inspecting encrypted web traffic to protecting against data loss, Our Cybersecurity offers a well-rounded solution that addresses multiple facets of cybersecurity.
Scrutinize web traffic efficiently
What’s really inside that encrypted web traffic?
SWG enables you to decrypt and inspect SSL-encrypted traffic to ensure they don’t include malware. Once the inspection is completed, traffic is re-encrypted and sent on its way.
Get actionable dashboard views — automated and on demand
Comprehensive network oversight has never been more critical to safeguarding data in transit.
An effective, cloud-based SWG provides comprehensive dashboard views that offer critical insights, based on location, user, and device. With high-level summaries of web activity — presented in graphs or tables that are easy to review — you can ensure your network remains secure.
Cut your cybersecurity spend with SWG
The cost of playing defense keeps climbing in line with the growth of your cyber defense technology stack.
Transitioning to SWG can lead to significant capital expense cuts related to the reduction of technologies and tools you’ve built out to keep you safe. Combining them into a single platform stack lets you cut costs and simplify management.
Shift cybersecurity oversight to dedicated experts
Cybersecurity personnel are in tight supply.
Our full-time monitoring allows you to shift your focus to growing your business. SWG can support both cloud and hybrid networks, providing central management, as well as rapid deployment, constant security updates, and flexible management models.

What is Secure Web Gateway?
SWG is a vital development in cybersecurity that protects organizations from online threats, enforces security rules, and helps you stay compliant with regulations. SWG acts as a wall between the Internet and your network, checking and controlling traffic to ensure safety and compliance. Work-from-anywhere and rapid SaaS adoption have proven the need for cloud native security solutions. Sitting between users, the web, and SaaS apps, SWG can terminate every connection inline, inspect all web traffic, and apply user-centric security and access policies to decrease your attack surface, prevent compromise, stop lateral movement, and halt sensitive data loss.
Why is SWG important for businesses?
SECs can form a crucial part of your web security system. Sitting between users and the web, they can provide advanced protection by inspecting requests and ensuring they are in line with your security policies. Anything that’s deemed risky will be filtered out and blocked. The growing adoption of cloud-based applications — combined with a more mobile, distributed workforce — have added stress to enterprise cybersecurity. As the challenges have increased for administrators to maintain visibility and control over data, and apply unified security policies, SWG has gained prominence for its capability of analyzing data in real time without slowing its flow along the network.
What should our business consider before implementing an SWG?
The primary consideration for any organization should be to understand how cyberthreats are evolving alongside technology developments, and the impact that a cyberattack or denial of service breach would have on your business, its reputation, and your future growth. Our Cybersecurity is exceptionally well positioned to help you understand the implications of a cyberattack and how implementing a SWG could help you avoid disaster. Among your considerations should be: your existing security infrastructure, and how well it has kept pace with changing threats; your specific data traffic patterns and how employees, contractors, and others use your network; and a realistic cost breakdown that weighs both the expense of implementing an SWG against how much a data breach might cost your business and reputation.
What is the difference between proxy and SWG?
In basic terms, a proxy is a networking function, while an SWG is a security solution. Typically, a proxy is a dedicated computer, or app, that is positioned between a remote user and an online destination, such as a website, server, or cloud-based app. An SWG is also positioned between the user and his/her intended target, but its functionality is much broader and more targeted — monitoring in real time for web-based threats such as malware, phishing attempts, and other malicious activities, and using tactics that can include URL filtering, virus/malware scanning, SSL inspection, and content filtering.
What threats does an SWG combat?
SWGs are especially well suited to identifying hidden threats that may enter your network through remote users accessing SaaS applications in the cloud, introducing malware into your network inadvertently, or through other means. By filtering and inspecting user traffic on your network, an SWG can rapidly root out anything suspicious, such as zero-day malware.
