Ultimate Buyer's Guide: Cloud Secure Web Gateway

Oct 07, 2021

Working habits are changing, and it's pushing the boundaries of legacy security.

Mobile and distributed users accessing data center applications, web apps, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platforms, and websites from outside the perimeter are now the rules, rather than the exception.

At the beginning of the work-from-home boom, companies flipped on VPNs to backhaul Internet traffic to headquarters or centralized data centers to secure corporate assets access. But that introduced latency sapped bandwidth and created a host of issues for users that impacted productivity.

As VPN concentrators began failing from the high traffic volume, organizations defaulted to legacy secure web gateways (SWGs) to manage the expanding attack surface. But these solutions don't work for today's highly distributed, work-from-anywhere environment.

For organizations ready to take a modern approach to secure users, this Ultimate SWG Buyer's Guide will help you determine which SWG maximizes your digital transformation efforts. Insights featured in the ebook include:

  • How cloud-scalable isolation is a crucial component
  • Characteristics to look for in a futureproof solution
  • Why "invisible security" exists and protects productivity
