  • Mobile and remote users are protected by endpoint agents that install upon connection request then direct traffic through the AT&T Global Security Gateway
  • AT&T assists with configuration of existing firewalls to tunnel internet traffic through the AT&T Global Security Gateway
  • Option to have AT&T centrally manage on-premises firewalls

Use cases

Technical cases

Protect mobile and branch office users

This secure web gateway solution supports remote users virtually everywhere they operate in the world. Mobile and branch office employees install endpoint agents upon connection request and then their traffic is routed through the secure web gateway's cloud infrastructure.

Secure SD-WAN connections

Cloud-native secure web gateways work hand-in-glove with SD-WAN architecture. They provide an unimpeded path to highly securing the network edge expanded by SD-WAN by allowing inspection of traffic that connects directly from user to commodity internet.
