With Internet-borne threats such as zero-day attacks, botnets and security breaches rising at a rapid pace, it has become crucial for businesses to monitor and control the web-traffic on their network. In a move which underlines its commitment to securing businesses against a rapidly-evolving threat landscape, Seqrite has unveiled its latest Secure Web Gateway (SWG). The solution leverages URL filtering, secure socket layer (SSL) inspection, deep content inspection, malware protection, and application control technologies to provide comprehensive protection from advanced Internet-borne threats.
Built on a machine learning engine, Seqrite SWG’s URL filtering feature offers identification and prevention of advanced threats with accuracy and is further backed by Seqrite’s cyber threat intelligence. This enables the solution to offer the comprehensive protection to enterprise clients by blocking malicious websites, URLs, domains, and phishing websites which serve as the launch pad for advanced security threats such as malware, spam, and botnets. The company says that SWG also helps enterprise users to enforce corporate and regulatory policy compliance and is part of the brand’s ongoing endeavour to provide IT security to businesses across all types of networks, devices, and things.
A comprehensive web and application security solution, SWG sits behind the perimeter device (hardware or virtual) to detect and block malware at the gateway level, thus protecting businesses from fraudulent websites, web applications, and security breaches. It is armed with security features and provides web protection. Seqrite SWG is also equipped with data loss prevention (DLP) component, which protects the loss, misuse and unauthorised access to sensitive business data or information.
Seqrite SWG’s USP lies in the depth of its security framework, as well as its usability and scalability. The solution offers templates for setting up various corporate policies, in addition to giving enterprise users the flexibility to define their own customised policies. It also allows for the creation of granular policies for individual users or user groups, based on their IP addresses or Microsoft AD/OpenLDAP memberships, for more protocol control and web filtering. Multiple instances of Seqrite SWG can co-exist on the same server, without any necessary interdependence, making the solution highly scalable.
