Overview

Deep packet inspection with AT&T Secure Web Gateway

Encryption of traffic on the web establishes a crucial security foundation for confidentiality and privacy online. However, encryption also provides a cloak to cybercriminals by which to transmit malware. Many firewalls claim that they offer deep packet inspection capabilities, but decryption is so processor-intensive that it greatly reduces the performance to an unacceptable level.

AT&T Secure Web Gateway is a managed service that offers unified protection against web-based threats for virtually all of your users, whether they are working from the office or remotely. This solution allows organizations to utilize deep packet inspection to help determine if the content they are interacting with on the Internet contains malware, removing the burden of this function from firewalls.

Benefits

Help reduce security blind spots and maintain network performance

Visibility into encrypted traffic

Some estimates show that as much as two-thirds of today's common malware uses encryption for obfuscation. And due to the processor-intensive nature of decryption, many organizations simply choose to ignore encrypted traffic creating a huge blind spot in the enterprise—leaving as much as 94% of web activity unchecked.

AT&T Secure Web Gateway, with the capability for the enterprise to select deep packet inspection, allows for examination of all outbound traffic uniformly, whether HTTP or HTTPS. The solution helps to locate malware that commonly hides within encrypted channels. 

Maximized network performance

The cloud-native architecture of AT&T Secure Web Gateway makes it possible to perform deep packet inspection without introducing the kind of latency that often comes from backhauling traffic through data center security hardware. The solution gives enterprises the ability to maximize the benefits of digital transformation without compromising security.

Works across distributed networks

Gain centralized visibility and control over distributed networks with the ability to view and run reports on encrypted web traffic across all users and locations through one pane-of-glass.
