MINIMIZING LATENCY AND MAXIMIZING AFFORDABILITY
AT&T Secure Web Gateway filters and inspects outbound user traffic to help prevent users from accessing malicious sites or content that is not compliant with corporate policies. It offers protection built in the cloud, for the cloud. Unlike firewalls, secure web gateway services can protect users outside headquarters that are connecting directly to the Internet with minimum latency and maximum affordability.
Improves network performance - This solution helps to remove performance constraints associated with hardware-based gateway solutions. Cloud-native architecture means never having to backhaul network traffic to centralized locations for the sake of traditional appliance-based filtering. In addition, AT&T Secure Web Gateway can help to take the burden of inspecting encrypted web packets away from firewalls, allowing their bandwidth to be dedicated to other inbound network traffic.
Centralizes visibility and control - Security administrators benefit from having a secure web gateway service that centralizes visibility into user and device activity by aggregating information into one dashboard. This provides management of security policies for all users and devices through a single pane of glass, including control over how users access specific cloud-based applications.
Scales quickly and affordably - The cloud-native architecture of AT&T Secure Web Gateway enables rapid deployment across many locations simultaneously. Because there are no appliances with this secure web gateway, there's no upfront capital expenditure and no added management burden when adding offices or users.
