About Secure Web Gateway

Secure Web Gateway is a web security product that protects your network against threats arising from the web.

Secure Web Gateway is installed as a physical or virtual appliance, which serves as a gateway that connects your network to the web.

Based on the implemented web security rules, Secure Web Gateway filters the traffic that goes out and comes in. Malicious and inappropriate content is blocked, while useful matter is allowed to pass through.

Secure Web Gateway is part of a solution known as Skyhigh Security Web Protection.

  • Within this solution, Secure Web Gateway protects your network against threats that arise when on-premise users access the web from inside your network.
  • Skyhigh Security Web Security Gateway Service (Skyhigh Security WSGS) is the part of the solution that protects web usage by cloud users, who access the web from outside your network, for example, while traveling or working at home.

As an integrated solution, Web Protection allows you to enforce the same security policy for web access by both on-premise and cloud users.
