Secure Web Technologies – A Comprehensive Overview

Secure Web Technologies | A Comprehensive Overview

With the shift to cloud computing, IT environments have become distributed. Data and applications can be found anywhere in the world, and not be protected by a traditional corporate network perimeter. Additionally, employees are spread out and need secure and fast connections to cloud and corporate IT services. Secure web gateways are crucial for cybersecurity as part of an approach to security that is multi-layered.

In general terms the term “secure web gateway” (SWG) is a tool that blocks unwanted malware and software from live Internet browsers and enforces policies of the enterprise. This solution is similar to CASBs and firewalls, but differs because it operates at the application level. It examines every request more thoroughly than traditional firewalls, and examines complete files for malware and evasive threats.

A reliable SWG solution will consist of firewall inspection, URL and DNS filtering and antimalware. It also includes sandboxing, sandboxing, Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), Web Application Firewalls (WAF) and more. It should also incorporate encryption. The encryption of data ensures that cybercriminals can’t read it, protecting sensitive information from falling into the improper hands.

A good SWG will come with a variety of features that are tailored to the requirements of your business. If you’re in an industry that is heavily restricted, your solution must include native data leak prevention and reporting compliance. If you employ a large remote workforce, the solution must be able to manage access to devices that are not managed and enforcing least privilege rules throughout your supply chain.
