A managed secure web gateway service for today and tomorrow
AT&T Secure Web Gateway filters and inspects outbound user traffic to help prevent users from accessing malicious sites or content that is not compliant with corporate policies. It offers protection built in the cloud, for the cloud. Unlike firewalls, secure web gateway services can protect users outside headquarters that are connecting directly to the Internet with minimum latency and maximum affordability.
Offers uniform protection in distributed environments
AT&T Secure Web Gateway consistently inspects traffic and applies security content policies no matter where the user operates, or what cloud service they use. Some versions can also help protect users from zero-day malware and botnets, while helping to safeguard the organization from data loss.
Improves network performance
This solution helps to remove performance constraints associated with hardware-based gateway solutions. Cloud-native architecture means never having to backhaul network traffic to centralized locations for the sake of traditional appliance-based filtering. In addition, AT&T Secure Web Gateway can help to take the burden of inspecting encrypted web packets away from firewalls, allowing their bandwidth to be dedicated to other inbound network traffic.
Centralizes visibility and control
Security administrators benefit from having a secure web gateway service that centralizes visibility into user and device activity by aggregating information into one dashboard. This provides management of security policies for all users and devices through a single pane of glass, including control over how users access specific cloud-based applications.
Scales quickly and affordably
The cloud-native architecture of AT&T Secure Web Gateway enables rapid deployment across many locations simultaneously. Because there are no appliances with this secure web gateway, there's no upfront capital expenditure and no added management burden when adding offices or users.
Fully managed, flexible deployment
This solution is a fully managed service backed by the 24x7 oversight of the AT&T Network Operations Center and can support cloud or hybrid network models. In either case, policy can be centrally managed through a single pane of glass. Hybrid deployments make it possible to protect mobile and remote users via a secure web gateway, while utilizing AT&T next-generation firewalls to enforce policy directly on premises.
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.
Protecting SD-WAN deployments
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.
Supporting migration to SaaS and cloud-based applications
This solution provides the means to safely adopt SaaS applications like Office 365 and migrate applications to cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft® Azure, and more. AT&T Secure Web Gateway makes it possible to both filter and granularly control access for direct-to-cloud connections.
Supports M&A and rapid expansion
AT&T Secure Web Gateway empowers organizations to quickly scale their security to include new locations or users while applying unified security policies.
Inspecting encrypted traffic
Secure web gateways have the ability to perform deep packet inspection of SSL/TLS traffic to uncover threats hidden by encryption—with minimal effect on performance.
